Law Office of Parente & Norem, P.C. - Joliet has recently expanded into Joliet and would like to advise the residents of the area on the importance of hiring a Personal Injury (PI) lawyer to help PI victims in getting a fair settlement from the defendant’s insurance companies.
“If you have been seriously injured due to an accident because of someone else’s negligence, you may be able to seek compensation for your medical bills and other accident-related expenses. Even though you are not required to call on an attorney, it is a prudent move to hire one because a PI lawyer can help you identify the true value of your case, better negotiate your settlement, and assist you with all the legal documents and processes,” said Christopher Norem from the Law Offices of Parente & Norem, P. C. - Joliet.
Norem explained that personal injury cases are much more difficult than they appear because some injuries do not manifest right away and may also become worse over time. He said that it can be difficult to prove and gather all evidences to connect those injuries to the accident, and only a PI lawyer has the expertise to build a better case and defend it in court should the need arise.
He further stated that a PI lawyer can help victims of car accidents and other PI related incidents in assessing and pursuing the full value of their claims. “While it is tempting to accept an offer from the defendant’s insurance company, you must consider all factors that may affect your health condition and financial status in the long run. Chances are, insurance companies will only offer a fraction of your claim, and only a PI attorney can help you identify the true value of your case and maximize the compensation that you are able to receive,” Norem added.
Norem continued that insurance companies may take advantage of the victim’s lack of knowledge and bargaining power, explaining that in some cases, an insurance company may attempt to negotiate with the victim. However, they also make any true progress impossible because they purposely make the whole process frustrating enough to ensure that the victim gets fed up and accepts their offer. “Sometimes, other insurers may also try to contact you all the time to ask about the details of the accident. They record every conversation and find cracks in your story so they can undermine your claim. By having a PI lawyer, you gain a professional that represents you when handling all the discussions with the insurers. Moreover, if negotiations break down, they are able to file a lawsuit and fight for the right compensation for you at trial,” he said.
Furthermore, Norem explained that after an accident, victims may be dealing with both physical and emotional pain which may affect their reasoning and decision making capabilities. He said that only a PI lawyer can provide them with additional peace of mind, knowing that they have a professional by their side who is making the right moves and decisions pertaining to their case.
