Common Chicago Personal Injury FAQs

Victims do not have a long time to file a personal injury claim for compensation due to the statute of limitations establishing time limits. This is why it is critical that after an accident, you get in touch with a Chicago personal injury attorney at Shindler & Shindler to get the process started. Every state has its own statute of limitations, or time limit to file a claim. The Illinois statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim in most cases is two years from the date that the injury accident took place.

Not every injury accident will warrant a personal injury claim, but many can. An experienced Chicago personal injury attorney at Shindler & Shindler can examine the details of your accident and injury and advise you on your rights and legal options for filing a claim if you have a legitimate injury claim for compensation to pursue. Even if you were somewhat responsible for your injury accident happening, in Illinois, as long as you are not deemed to be 51% responsible or more, you may be able to recover some amount of financial compensation.

There is no legal requirement to work with an attorney when it comes to filing a personal injury claim. Although, statistically, victims who use a legal professional to handle their claims tend to win more often and get the most financial compensation for their losses. And, when you work with the Chicago personal injury attorneys at Shindler & Shindler, you pay nothing unless we win your case for you.

The ideal situation for an insurance agent is to catch a victim off-guard and have them answer probing questions when the victim does not have legal representation protecting their interests. It is highly advisable to connect with an attorney first before you speak with the insurance adjuster. If the adjuster asks questions before you have legal counsel, you can politely tell them that you are in the process of working with an attorney and you will have your attorney connect with them to handle communications on our behalf.
