How do I Know if I Should Pursue a Personal Injury Case?

In order to pursue a personal injury settlement there must be another party responsible for the accident who is able to personally, or more commonly through insurance, provide compensation. You must also have suffered damages in the form of a physical injury or emotional trauma.

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 motorcycle accident in Illinois?

After a motorcycle accident, it's important that you check for injuries and receive the necessary medical help. Call the police so they can write an official accident report and facilitate the exchange of driver's licenses and insurance information between you and the person responsible for the accident. If you are able, you might want to take pictures of the point of contact, vehicle damage, road signs, and other relevant records. This information can be useful for your motorcycle accident attorney during the claims process.

How much will my motorcycle accident in Illinois settle for?

It's probably not the answer you want to hear, but it depends. And it often depends on factors that you don't know initially such as how much insurance the person who caused the accident has. Other factors include which state the accident happened in, how clearly the accident wasn't your fault, your injuries and medical treatment, your lost income, and more. Evaluating how much your case is worth is what a good lawyer will help you do and what Mighty Law will do if we work together.

Is hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer in Illinois necessary?

You are not required by law to hire a motorcycle accident lawyer in Illinois. You always have the option to pursue it on your own. That said, these crashes can often result in serious property damage, injuries, and other collateral damage. In many cases, you'll have the best chance of securing fair compensation with an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer who's fluent in industry standards, the negotiation process, and the specifics of your case.

How much does a motorcycle accident lawyer in Illinois cost through Mighty Law?

With rates 10% less than the industry average, we're here to lessen your financial burden—not add to it. If your case settles directly, we take a pre-suit fee of 30% or less of the final settlement. Cases requiring a lawsuit have a post-suit fee of 36% or less. In either situation, you'll only pay if you win.

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

We start by talking to you for free. You'll fill out a simple form online or call us. If our legal team can be of help, we'll send you a retainer agreement that lays out the terms of our engagement in simple terms. Most importantly, you'll only have to pay if you win your case. Once you're officially a client, we'll assign you a case manager.

That case manager will be your point person and help you with everything from making sure you have access to medical care to help with collecting documents, including medical bills, insurance information, photo evidence, and more. Our motorcycle accident lawyers will then assemble a claim with those records and begin negotiations with the insurance company. Most cases reach a settlement, but in some instances, your lawyer may need to file a lawsuit against the defendant's insurance company to get the compensation you deserve.

How long will it take to investigate a motorcycle accident claim in Illinois?

The length of time it takes to investigate a motorcycle accident in Illinois varies greatly and depends on the details of the case. Factors that could slow your case down include disputes about who is at fault, a slow negotiation process, and the filing of a lawsuit. Mighty Law's team of motorcycle accident attorneys in Illinois will work hard to help you reach a satisfactory outcome as swiftly as possible.

What happens once my motorcycle accident case is settled?

Once you've agreed to a settlement, your attorney will give you a “settlement statement” which shows the total settlement and all of the expenses that come out of your settlement before you're paid. You'll sign that and a release to officially move forward with your settlement. Those expenses, or bills, get paid once the settlement check is received from the insurance company. This typically includes anyone who provided services to you during your case such as your lawyer, doctors, and more. You'll get the amount that's left after all of these bills are paid which is sometimes called the net settlement. It typically takes a few weeks to a few months to get the check from the insurance company, pay all of the expenses, and disburse it to you
