Why Do I Need East Moline Personal Injury Lawyers After an Accident?

Before understanding why an attorney is essential for your East Moline injury case, you must first understand what a personal injury claim is and what it entails.

A personal injury claim includes the following factors:

  1. An injured party
  2. A potential negligent or reckless party
  3. The duty of care that the liable party owed the injured party
  4. Causation, or what caused the accident

If someone was injured due to the actions or inactions of another, the responsible party should cover the related damages suffered by the victim.

This “claim” for a fair amount of financial compensation is often sent to the responsible party’s insurance company, and the insurance pays out what is owed. However, insurance companies are for-profit entities and thus will attempt to pay victims the least compensation the insurance company can.

This is why you need an attorney to provide representation and fight for your best interests. Not only will we answer your questions, but we will also guide you through the next best steps.

We also handle:

  • Investigating your claim and finding the causation of your accident
  • Calculating a fair amount of compensation
  • Negotiating with insurance companies
  • Navigating insurance policy limitations

When to Contact an East Moline Personal Injury Lawyer

After an accident, it’s imperative that you first get to a safe place and seek out immediate medical attention. This may involve an ambulance or helicopter ride to the nearest hospital, where you will undergo tests and possibly emergency surgeries. If you are not gravely injured, you may be able to:

  • Take a few pictures of the accident scene before leaving the area, 
  • Collect the other party’s insurance information, and
  • Give a witness statement to the police.

Then, after following emergency personnel’s direction and care, call Winstein, Kavensky & Cunningham. In Illinois, victims of any personal injury accident only have two years to file a claim, according to the statute of limitations

And while this may seem like a long time, you will not want to wait for legal representation. After all, insurance companies may begin attempting to settle your claim while you are still recovering at the hospital.
