Helping Victims And Their Families Pursue Maximum Compensation
If you have been injured in a car accident, the insurance company on the other side is not interested in protecting your individual rights. They are only interested in saving money. Without a lawyer to protect your interests, you may end up with far less than you need to compensate you for your losses.
At Holley, Rosen & Beard, LLC, our lawyers offer a free initial consultation to answer your questions and explain your options. From our law offices in Springfield, we represent motor vehicle accident victims throughout central Illinois and across the state. Call 217-280-4984 or 877-671-5884 to learn how our experience can help you.
Who Will Pay My Medical Bills?
One of the first issues that car accident victims deal with is medical bills. The at-fault driver’s insurance company won’t pay you anything for medical care or lost wages until you resolve your case either through a negotiated settlement or a jury verdict.
Until your case is resolved, our lawyers will help you find other sources of medical coverage such as Med-Pay or health insurance. If you have no medical insurance, our lawyers will look for other sources of coverage.
It’s important not to settle your case until you have fully recovered from your injuries or your physician has stated that you have reached maximum medical improvement. Once you have finished treating for your injuries, our lawyers will make a settlement demand from the other side to meet your needs now and in the future. Our hope is that you recover fully and do not have a long-term injury, even if it means that your case is worth less money.
You should never sign anything or give a recorded statement to any insurance company without speaking to a lawyer. Otherwise, you could end up damaging your case.
We Help You Keep More Of Your Settlement
In many personal injury litigation cases, the plaintiff (injured party) will incur expenses for medical costs that are covered by his or her own insurance provider while the case is in litigation. The providers may place liens against the settlement or jury award to reclaim payment for costs and services rendered. At the conclusion of your case, we negotiate to reduce reimbursements to parties who have liens or claims against your settlement.
