Like millions of other Americans, the COVID-19 lockdown has likely changed your life more than you could have imagined. You’re working from home, your kids are not going to school, you can’t go socialize with your neighbor, and your dentist even had to cancel your routine dental exam. While many people are staying in their houses waiting for life to return to normal, drivers are still on the roads. Essential workers still need to go to work, households still need food and other goods, deliveries are being made, and some people are even out for a drive to quell their boredom and pass the time.
The bottom line is, car accidents can still happen while the coronavirus cripples our country. If you are injured in an accident, you need a skilled Illinois car accident lawyer to fight for your rights.
Everyone is experiencing a lot of stress right now, and suffering injuries in a car accident only stand to increase that stress. You might think that filing an insurance claim and letting the insurance companies work it out is the best thing to do. The truth is that insurance companies generally have one goal in mind: to pay you as little as possible for your claim. When you hire an Illinois car accident lawyer, you have someone on your side to represent your interests in your claim. Your attorney can:
While it might be tempting to not worry about your claim until this lockdown is over, be aware that you only have a limited amount of time to file a legal claim. This deadline is known as the statute of limitations. Under the Illinois Compiled Statutes 735 §5/13-202, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the accident. If you file a claim after this date, you will not have the legal right to pursue compensation for your injuries. The sooner you contact an Illinois car accident attorney, the better the chance that your claim will be filed on time and that vital evidence can be collected before it disappears.
