What should I do if I get in a truck accident in Illinois?
First, check for injuries and receive the necessary medical care. Then, contact law enforcement so they can write an official truck accident report, which can be a valuable document when you're building your case with your personal injury attorney. Collect as much information as you can, including photographic evidence, witness statements, and the truck driver's information.
What is the settlement for a truck accident in Illinois that I should expect?
Illinois truck accident settlements vary greatly, so it would be disingenuous to give you a number you should expect. Your specific settlement will depend on factors including medical expenses, lasting injuries, who was at fault, and the policy limits of the vehicle that injured you. Because truck accidents are often serious, these settlements can reach the hundreds of thousands or the millions.
Is hiring a truck accident lawyer in Illinois necessary?
While it is not mandatory to hire a Illinois truck accident lawyer, truck accidents can be serious and involve large companies (and large legal teams). By hiring professional legal help, you can make sure that you have an advocate in the aftermath of the crash—a truck accident lawyer who can help you discover what happened and what's the best path for moving forward.
How much does a truck accident lawyer in Illinois cost through Mighty Law?
We work on a contingency basis, so you only pay us if you receive a payout. For truck accident cases that settle directly, we charge a pre-suit fee of 30% of the final gross settlement or less. Cases involving a lawsuit have a post-suit fee of 36% or less. We're not here to make things harder, so we keep our fees 10% lower than the industry average.
What does the process look like to get started filing my claim?
We'll begin with an initial screening where we learn the basic facts of your case. If our team of Illinois truck accident attorneys can help, you'll be signed to a standard retainer agreement that dictates our relationship and the fees you'll pay us. This includes language that makes it clear we only get paid if you win your case.
After you're signed to a retainer, we'll connect you with a case manager to collect important documents, including insurance information, medical bills, and more. Mighty Law's lawyers will also help you create a treatment plan to follow during this time. Once we have the required documents, our lawyers will assemble your claim and negotiate with the insurance company. If your truck accident case does not reach a settlement, Mighty Law may file a lawsuit on your behalf.
What happens once I am offered a settlement for my truck accident case?
If you're satisfied with the settlement amount, you'll sign a legal release and your case is resolved. We'll take our fees out of the gross settlement and start the reimbursement process. Then we'll root you on as you keep on truckin'.
