The Right (and Wrong) Reasons to Get Medical Treatment After An Accident

If you’re hurt in an accident, the most obvious course of action is to get medical treatment. But getting treatment after an accident has implications that go beyond just your physical health. People get pressure from their attorney to get treatment, even though their attorney may not disclose that often medical treatment from an accident isn’t covered by health insurance, and your legal settlement may depend on the treatment you get.

FAQ

What should I do if I get in a car accident in Crystal Lake?

When you're in a car accident in Crystal Lake, it's important that you first check for injuries and receive the necessary medical care. You should also consider calling in law enforcement, who can write an official report of the accident. Finally, if you're able, collect photographic evidence, driver information, and witness statements before leaving the scene.

What is the average settlement for a car accident in Crystal Lake?

Car accident settlements in Crystal Lake vary widely, so it's not necessarily possible to provide an average amount. That said, 75% of all personal injury cases settle for under $30,000. Your particular situation will depend on the total medical expenses and the severity of injuries, among other factors.

Is hiring a car accident lawyer in Crystal Lake necessary?

While it's not always necessary to hire a Crystal Lake car accident lawyer, accident claims can take months or even years to resolve—and an experienced team of lawyers can help move things along. Having the right legal support from Mighty Law will help you build a strong case and handle any difficult paperwork, medical issues, and beyond.

How much does a car accident lawyer in Crystal Lake cost through Mighty Law?

A key thing to know about Mighty Law is that we work on a contingency basis, which means you'll only pay us if you win. When it comes to fees, our auto wreck attorneys charge 10% lower than the industry average. Cases that settle directly come with a pre-suit fee of 30% or less of the final settlement amount. Cases that go to trial have a post-suit fee of 36% or less.

What does the process look like to get started filing my claim?

Our process is all about transparency and convenience. Before we start working together, we'll complete a free initial screening to learn the basic facts of your case.

Then, we'll match you with a case manager who will collect medical payments, accident reports, and insurance information. While we create a treatment plan for your full recovery, your team of Crystal Lake auto accident lawyers will use the paperwork to build your case and file a demand letter. We'll negotiate with insurance companies for a fair settlement. If a settlement can't be reached, we may help you file a lawsuit.

How long will it take to investigate a car accident claim in Crystal Lake?

While the average length of time to payout is 1.5 years, each car crash claim is unique. Although most individuals can expect at least several months of work to investigate their case, some claims can last for over 5 years.

The length it takes to settle a claim depends on various factors, including the insurance companies, the details of the accident, and the presence of safety violations. With Mighty Law, you can rest assured that we'll start building your case from day one.

What happens once my car accident case is settled?

Once you agree to a settlement, we'll take our agreed-upon fee from the final gross amount, and you'll be reimbursed for damages. You'll move toward a full recovery and we'll cheer you on, all the way.
