Chicago Injury Cases: FAQ
Injury Lawyer in Chicago
Do I need an attorney after a car accident in which I was injured?
If you don't have a skilled Chicago personal injury attorney assisting you, it is likely that you will get a much lower settlement. Even insurance company studies indicate that those who have legal representation usually get much higher settlements. When a case goes to court and the liable party is contesting the lawsuit or claim, you want to ensure that the legal team representing you has the proven courtroom experience you need to successfully litigate complex cases, such as medical malpractice, catastrophic injury cases, and others. Our legal team at Steven J. Morton & Associates Ltd. has over 60 years collective experience in such cases.
How much will my claim be worth?
Each situation is different and should be evaluated as soon after the injury as possible. There is a statute of limitations in the state that restricts the time frame in which you can legally file for damages, or for a wrongful death. We offer a free case evaluation and can advise you how we believe the case will likely resolve, both financially and in the length of time before the payment is made.
How do I know how to choose an attorney in an injury case?
