St. Clair County Personal Injury Lawyer
Hipskind & McAninch, LLC: Dedicated to Attaining Your Best Outcome
St. Clair is a wonderful place to live and work. We know this because we both live and grew up in the area. Unfortunately, even in nice suburban towns, safety issues and accidents can happen. Whether intentional or not, there is a chance that you will or have already suffered a personal injury due to another person’s negligence.
Don’t Wait After an Accident
There are an endless number of potential scenarios that could lead you to seek assistance from a personal injury lawyer. A MetroLink accident. A truck crash on Highway Forty. A slip-and-fall at the Walmart on Green Mount Commons Drive. A dog bite at a friend’s house that leads to an overnight stay at Memorial Hospital Belleville. The list is truly endless.
However, if you were injured in St. Clair County and are scrambling to figure out your next steps, there are some actions you can take no matter the accident.
We can’t say this enough – your first step after any accident should be to contact an experienced St. Clair County lawyer. In the wake of an accident, you may be inundated with communication and requests from the police, your workplace, the other party’s insurance company, and your insurance company. All of this is happening while you are trying to manage your immediate medical needs and get your life back to normal.
Working with an attorney will ensure that you don’t do or say something incriminating when speaking with any of these entities, as well as protect you from being taken advantage of during a stressful time.
While your insurance company is there to help you, it is a for-profit business. Insurance companies will look for ways to give you less compensation than you deserve, to squeeze more money for their shareholders. While they pursue their bottom line, you should pursue yours by letting your attorneys do the talking. Don’t speak to the at-fault party’s insurance company without your lawyer present.
Determining Personal Injury Liability
Once you have a legal team on board, they will work to prove that the accident was not your fault, and that you deserve your rightful compensation. Proving negligence and liability in personal injury cases will vary in difficulty depending on the facts of your case.
