Lawyers oversee legal matters on behalf of their clients. When looking for one, you need to know the legal services you need. In the case of a car accident claim, a lawyer will oversee all communications and negotiations between you and the insurance company. The lawyer will also help you file court-mandated documents within the statute of limitations (time limits) for filing those documents. 
An insurance claim is a request for benefits or compensation for damages that result from a motor vehicle accident. The claim is typically made with the insurance company representing the driver who is at fault.  Both drivers will need to report the accident to their insurance companies, however, in accordance to the requirements of their individual policies. Many car insurance claims are made each day around the nation, and the process has become relatively standardized. That doesn’t mean the insurance company won’t push back if they believe they shouldn’t recognize their liability, but the process will be similar to most other accidents of the same type.
Chicago car accident attorneys are likely going to attempt to reach a settlement with the insurance company before going to court. The majority of car accident lawsuits are settled out of court. However, if the insurance company refuses to offer a reasonable settlement, or if they have decided to argue fault for the accident, you could find yourself going to court.

Increased Risk of Motor Vehicle Accidents Leads to Volvo Recall

Increased Risk of Motor Vehicle Accidents Leads to Volvo Recall

The Chicago and South Chicago Accident Lawyers at Grazian and Volpe advise all owners of these vehicles to take their cars to their Volvo dealer for inspection. Volvo will make any repairs needed without charge. Volvo Cars which is now owned by China’s Geely, is recalling the 2007 model year cars, built between March 8, 2006 and May 16, 2007 to inspect a potential problem that could cause a hose to burst at the steering gear resulting in a sudden loss of power steering, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety administration.

Volvo has estimated that 6% of the recalled cars have the defect but is presently not aware of any reports linking any accidents or injuries to this issue

We were  surprised to learn that Geely had taken over Ford Motor Company’s Volvo car unit in 2010 but glad to see that they appear to be honoring the Volvo’s reputation as a brand committed to safety.
