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 Joliet?

If you're in a motorcycle accident in Joliet, move over to the side of the road and check for injuries. Call emergency immediately, so that you can receive medical assistance and law enforcement can write an official accident report. If you're able, you should also gather evidence from the scene, including photographs of property damage, driver's license and insurance information, and witness statements.

What is the average settlement for a motorcycle accident in Joliet?

We, unfortunately, cannot provide an average motorcycle accident settlement amount since such claims vary widely, from the tens of thousands to the hundreds of thousands. That being said, 75% of personal injury cases settle for less than $30,000. If you work with Mighty's Joliet motorcycle accident lawyers, we'll help you fairly value your case based on the medical expenses, severity of injuries, and other factors.

Is hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer in Joliet necessary?

You do not have to hire a lawyer following a motorcycle crash in Joliet. However, these incidents can often result in high medical bills, questions of fault, and serious injuries. Experienced, ethical Joliet motorcycle accident lawyers help ensure that you're receiving fair compensation and avoiding the pitfalls of the PI process.

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

We work on a contingency basis, which means you'll only pay if you win. For cases that settle directly, we charge a pre-suit fee of 30% or less of the final gross settlement. For cases involving a lawsuit, we charge a post-suit fee of 36% or less. That's 10% lower than the fees of traditional personal injury firms .

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

You'll start by filling out our online contact form. Next, a Mighty Law representative will be in touch for an initial screening. If you're a good fit for our legal services, we'll match you with a Mighty Law case manager who will collect documents, including insurance information, accident reports, and medical bills, and develop a treatment plan to follow. Your Joliet motorcycle accident attorneys will then use the gathered evidence to build a case and start negotiations with the insurance company. We're confident that we can help you reach a settlement that you're happy with, but if that doesn't happen right away, we may move forward with a lawsuit.

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

While the average time to payout is 1.5 years in PI, it's hard to say how long it will take for your Joliet motorcycle accident to settle. Complicating factors include the extent of medical treatment, the turnaround time of the insurance company, and the possibility of a lawsuit. Your specific case could resolve within a year, but some claims also last over 5 years. We'll push hard to help you reach your ideal outcome as soon as possible.

What happens once my motorcycle accident case is settled?

Once a settlement has been reached, we will take our cut of the final amount. You'll then receive the compensation and move forward toward a healthier, happier future.
