It was a normal day until someone hit your car. There you were, casually driving to your Springfield home when a crash took your breath away. Now, your everyday routine has become a frantic scramble. Are you okay? Are the others in your car okay? What about the others involved in the crash? Is anyone hurt?
The moments after a traffic accident are filled with anxiety. Fear and worry are expected, but if you were the victim of an accident, do not let your emotions cloud your judgment. While your immediate safety is likely on your mind right after a collision, you must consider the long-term possibilities of your situation. You must be the one who puts your needs and your priorities first.
Other parties who are and become involved in the car accident, including law enforcement and insurance companies, are not concerned about you getting the help and justice you deserve as a result of your crash injuries. You are your most important advocate after an accident, and you can get further support that you need by turning to a car accident lawyer who you trust will put your needs first.
At Holley, Rosen & Beard, LLC, our Illinois lawyers understand what your priorities are and how to try to protect them. We know that you will have immediate medical needs but also that there might be long-term medical matters that will need addressing. Your care will cost money, and insurance companies will not pay for your care until you have settled your case with the other party. That resolution can take a long time to reach, meaning you will need some other way to pay for your medical bills. We help you find the financial support you need when you need it.
If you were hit by a car and injured and you know that it was another driver’s fault, you might think initially that your case is simple. You will tell the police what happened and that report will easily result in the compensation you need, right? Often even the seemingly simple personal injury cases get complicated. Let a car accident attorney handle the complications while putting your rights first.
