If you’ve been injured in a traffic accident, you’re not alone. According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, our state saw 274,111 motor vehicle crashes in 2012. More than 20 percent of these were injury crashes, which totaled 60,252. At the Arami Law Office, we offer quality legal representation and emotional support as you cope with your injury. We understand the pressure you’re dealing with — physical pain, loss of income and mounting medical bills — and we’re committed to doing everything we can to get you the maximum compensation possible.
Many injured parties put off asserting their legal rights to focus on their physical recovery or think they don’t need a lawyer until the insurance company forces their hand. Unfortunately, by refraining from contacting an attorney, they play into the insurance company’s hands. After 10 years of practice, we’ve represented many motorists, passengers and pedestrians who came to us when they got fed up with insurance company tactics, such as:
Pressure for an early settlement — The insurance company may want you to settle right away, before the extent of your injuries are even known. If you have a head, neck or spine injury, your recovery is very hard to predict. Many injuries require long rehabs, and loss of function can be permanent. An insurer may claim to be willing to be generous, but if you rush into a settlement, you could get much less than your injury is worth.
Low-ball settlement offers — Insurance companies are in business to make money and must protect their bottom line. An offer always reflects what they’d like to get away with paying, not what is fair to the claimant.
Delays — The insurer may know that you’re lying in a hospital bed, unable to work, and your medical bills are mounting. The longer you are kept waiting, the more you feel pressured into accepting an unfair settlement.
Retaining an attorney at the outset sends a strong signal that you intend to assert your rights and will settle for nothing less than full compensation.
Your personal injury attorney must prove someone other than you is responsible for your injury. We have experience dealing with distracted drivers, speeders, DUIs, reckless drivers and simple negligence. We regularly consult with accident reconstruction experts for a variety of scenarios, including rear-end collisions, T-bone accidents at intersections, high-speed collisions and head-on collisions on undivided highways.
The Arami Law Office represents motorists, passengers and pedestrians hurt in vehicle crashes. We understand how important complete compensation is to your future.
