Personal Injury FAQs

The hours and days after a personal injury or the wrongful death of a loved one can be incredibly important, both for your well being and your ability to recover money from the guilty party.  

First, make sure not to underestimate your injuries or avoid seeing a medical provider. Trying to “tough it out” is never a good idea, and this could lead to additional injuries which could have been prevented. Also, putting off visiting a medical provider, regardless of the reason, can make a juror question the severity of your injuries.

Second, do not discuss the details of the accident with anyone except your medical providers, police, and your personal injury attorney. Don’t speak with anyone from the insurance company of the person or company that caused the accident. Never give a recorded statement. Do not try to diagnose what injuries you suffered, as you are not a doctor.

Third, try to collect evidence before it disappears. If possible, use your cell phone to take videos and pictures of the accident scene and your injuries, if visible. Also, if possible, try to get the contact information of all witnesses to the accident, and make notes of anything they told you or that you overheard them saying. 

Most importantly, you want to hire an experienced personal injury attorney as quickly as possible, so further action can be taken to get evidence and protect your rights.

How you pay your medical bills after a personal injury accident depends on your specific situation, and this issue should be thoroughly discussed with your personal injury attorney. Options include paying with your own health insurance, having the at-fault party or their liability insurer pay, or having your employer pay (if you were injured at work). In addition, many doctors and other medical providers will agree to wait for their bills to be paid until you have recovered money from your injury claim against the at-fault party.  

As a rule, it is very, very uncommon for an insurance company to make a fair settlement offer if you are not represented by an experienced personal injury lawyer. The insurance company deals with cases like yours everyday, while you (if you’re lucky) have never suffered a personal injury or had a loved one killed. Given this difference in experience and knowledge, along with the insurance company’s goal to make as much money as possible, an unfair settlement offer is almost certain.  

You might feel that you have to accept an insurance company’s settlement offer because, for any number of reasons, you can’t afford not to. We cannot stress enough the importance of speaking with an experienced personal injury lawyer, either at Wayfinder Law or elsewhere, before accepting any settlement offer. Once an unfair settlement agreement is signed, there is no reversing it.

This is one of the most difficult and troubling problems you might face after suffering serious injuries,  and there is no easy solution. Please contact us so you can speak with a personal injury attorney about this very important issue and potential customized solutions. 

After suffering a personal injury, your are entitled to recover money from the guilty party for past and future pain & suffering, loss of a normal life, disfigurement, past and future medical bills, and past and future lost wages, among other things. In certain cases, you can recover punitive damages against the guilty party. Punitive damages can be awarded in cases where the defendant’s behavior was intentional, willful and wanton, or reckless. These damages are designed to punish such behavior and stop similar future behavior.  

If your family member was killed, you may be entitled to money for medical bills, burial expenses, lost future income, loss of companionship, and loss of services. It is also possible to recover money for the pain and suffering your family member suffered before their death.

Your personal injury claim or wrongful death case is worth what you and the guilty party (or their insurance company) agree that it is worth, and a settlement agreement is reached. While will always give you our honest, best estimate of what your case is worth, it is your choice to decide whether to accept any settlement offer. If no agreement is reached, a judge or jury will decide at trial how much the case is worth. 

It is impossible to precisely determine the value of any personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit before any settlement or trial judgment. However, our experience, combined with our knowledge of local settlements and verdicts, allows us to make a good estimate. Contact our Belleville, Illinois personal injury law office to get a free, confidential case review. The estimated value of your case can be assessed at this meeting. 

If the guilty party doesn’t make a fair settlement offer, a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit will need to be filed. A lawsuit can last from a few months to a few years or more. Normally, cases settle or go to trial within one or two years. Things that can prolong an injury lawsuit include ongoing medical treatment, legal arguments between the parties, uncooperative witnesses, unreasonable parties, and appeals, among other things.  

Probably not. Approximately 90% – 95% of cases are settled before any trial. However, we will work on your personal injury or wrongful death case with the belief that it will go to trial, and we won’t settle your case without your approval. Only by planning to take your case to trial can we maximize the settlement value of your injury or wrongful death case. If a reasonable settlement offer is not made, we will recommend going to trial.   

No. You pay nothing unless your Wayfinder Law personal injury attorney recovers money for you. Once we recover money for you, we receive a portion of that money as our fee. The court costs and litigation expenses we paid during your case are also reimbursed from the amount recovered.  

If we don’t get you money, you pay us nothing.

Don't Get Taken Advantage Of

Sometimes the guilty party (or their insurance company) will recognize the pain & damages caused & make a fair settlement offer to a personal injury victim or the family of a wrongful death victim who is not represented by an attorney. However, this is very rare. We strongly recommend that you do not sign anything or accept any settlement offer before you speak with us or another personal injury attorney. We also recommend:

  • Not giving a recorded statement to the guilty party’s insurer
  • Not settling your injury claim until you have fully healed
  • Not letting the insurance adjuster bully you into a settlement
  • Finding out the true value of your claim

Normally, guilty parties (or their insurance companies) do all they can to pay as little as possible to make your personal injury claim go away. We know this process, and we understand what is right. We promise to fight for you as long as it takes to get you a fair recovery, whether that be through a settlement or a trial.  

Let us help you.
