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.

The Chicago Car Accident Lawyers at the Lloyd Miller Law Group warn that if you suffer a personal injury in a Car Accident, Bicycle Accident, Truck Accident, or a bad fall or work injury, don’t be brave and risk further injury just because you think you are ok. People who get in accidents are immediately filled with adrenaline, your body’s defense to pain and danger. Adrenaline can cause a feeling of euphoria which will mask serious injuries and enables us to fight or flee from a dangerous situation. This may cause an accident victim to assume that they aren’t really injured. Later, when the adrenaline wears off, victims will notice the pain and it can be very severe. The Chicago car accident lawyers at the Lloyd Miller Law Group have handled hundreds of car accident, truck accident, bicycle accident and pedestrian accident claims. Some of the most serious and preventable injuries occur when the victim thinks they are fine and refuses medical attention. This is not only detrimental to their physical recovery, but also can impede their ability to obtain full compensation in their claim for damages. South Chicago is full of industry and business’ and therefore a hot spot for potential motor vehicle accidents involving cars, trucks, bicycles and pedestrians.  Personal injury resulting from any accident should never be ignored, and victims should obtain medical attention as soon as possible. The Lloyd Miller Law Group wants to litigate for the best financial and medical settlement available for your injuries, and that means being safe and smart by getting medical treatment immediately. Leave the treatment of the personal injury to the doctor and the advocacy of your settlement to the Lloyd Miller Law Group
