What Do Personal Injury Lawyers Do?

Published on April 7th, 2018

You’ve heard of personal injury lawyers in Illinois, but do you fully understand exactly what they do? The Law Office of Daniel E Goodman takes pride in helping clients receive the compensation they deserve after being injured. Here’s how the process works.

Explaining Your Rights

First and foremost, we will analyze your specific situation and explain how certain legal restrictions may impact your case. Our personal injury lawyers in Illinois are knowledgeable and always strive to ensure that you are informed throughout the process.

Investigating Claims

We will investigate your claim and determine who is at fault. When you have recovered from your injuries, we will gather your medical records and bills, your lost wages and determine the value of your case and present that to the insurance company. If the insurance company does not offer a settlement that is fair and reasonable, we will file suit and continue to pursue your case in court.

Will You Go to Court?

You may or may not step foot in the courtroom depending on how your case evolves. Many of our clients are surprised to find out that settling usually happens before suit is ever filed and even once the suit is filed, many cases can be settled prior to reaching trial. Rest assured though, if the offer is not fair or reasonable, our staff of experienced attorneys will litigate your case to resolution.

If you have more questions about the process, don’t hesitate to call us today. We take pride in our success and want to help you through this difficult time.
