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 truck accident in Northbrook?

If you can, check for injuries and move to the side of the road. Notify law enforcement and request any necessary medical care. Once the police arrive, they will help you write a truck accident report and exchange driver information. You should also collect photographic evidence of both vehicles, take note of road signs, and record witness statements.

What is the average settlement for a semi truck accident in Northbrook?

Unfortunately, we can't provide a specific number because settlement amounts vary greatly. Your specific situation will depend on unique factors such as your total medical expenses, the presence of lasting injuries, and the possibility of truck safety violations. Since commercial truck accidents are often serious, settlements can reach the hundreds of thousands and even the millions of dollars.

Is hiring a truck accident lawyer in Northbrook necessary?

No, you are not required to hire a truck accident lawyer in Northbrook. However, trucking companies often have strong legal representation, and it's fair to seek your own support. Hiring your own team of truck accident lawyers can make the difference between a strong, thoroughly-investigated case and a hastily accepted lowball offer.

How much does a truck accident attorney in Northbrook cost through Mighty Law?

We work on a contingency basis, so you only pay if you win. For cases that settle directly, we charge a pre-suit fee of 30% of the final gross settlement. For truck accident cases requiring a lawsuit, we charge a post-suit fee of 36%. Our rates are 10% lower than the industry average.

What does the process look like?

Fill out our simple contact form, and a Mighty Law specialist will reach out with questions about your case. If we can help, you'll then work with a case manager to collect documentation. At the same time, Mighty will help you create a treatment plan. Once all your paperwork is collected, our legal team will assemble your case and negotiate with the insurance company. If a settlement amount cannot be reached, we can file a lawsuit on your behalf.

How long will it take to investigate a truck accident claim in Northbrook?

The average length of time for personal injury cases is 1.5 years, but 18-wheeler truck accident claims in Northbrook vary greatly. Some cases settle within a year, while others can last over five years. Your case will depend on treatment time, the insurance company, the complexity of investigations, and other factors.

What happens once my truck accident case is settled?

Once your case is settled, you'll receive your compensation, minus our legal fees. From there? The future is up to you.
