It is recommended not to speak to the insurance company adjuster involved in the case prior to contacting an experienced and trusted Chicago accident attorney. They are likely to lowball you and offer an insufficient amount, in order to pay you as little as possible for the injuries you have suffered. Remember you have no obligation to speak to agents or representatives despite their attempts to contact you via the phone or in person through a hospital visit. Together, you and your attorney will discuss the details and options in your case and come to a decision regarding when and how to file your claim against the insurance company to pursue the best possible outcome on your behalf. Our firm prides itself in not collecting until you do, so your best interest is our best interest. We look forward to discussing your matter with you at no initial cost.
