Focusing on Your Recovery  

When you are visiting your doctor’s office, make sure to tell your physician and any specialists that you see about all of the symptoms you have been experiencing since the auto accident and injuries occurred. Even if some of your symptoms seem minor, it is important that you discuss them with your physician. At the same time, make sure that you do not exaggerate any of your symptoms or injuries or attempt to coerce the physician or specialist to concur with your personal opinion about your medical diagnosis. This could hinder your ability to recover to the fullest.

If you have any questions regarding what you should or should not do after you have been injured in a Streator car accident, feel free to contact Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd. online or call (815) 938-9700 to speak to one of our experienced car accident lawyers.

What Happens if the Other Driver Does Not Have Auto Insurance?

Illinois is considered a “fault” car insurance state. This means that the driver who was legally at fault for causing the car accident and injuries is responsible for paying the compensation for the property damages and the injuries that occurred due to the accident. Typically, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will pay the costs of the damages and injuries up to the limits of the insurance policy.

Unfortunately, there are drivers on the roads of Streator who are not carrying current auto insurance policies. If the other driver does not have a valid insurance policy, you cannot expect an insurance company to pay any compensation for your damages and injuries. This is where uninsured motorist coverage in Illinois comes into play.

Uninsured Motorist Coverage in Illinois

If you have an Illinois auto insurance policy, you should also have what is called “uninsured motorist coverage.” In the event another driver does not have insurance, the uninsured motorist coverage will cover the cost of the damages and injuries that you suffered in the Streator car accident. In cases like this, it is especially crucial that you contact a skilled Streator auto accident and injury lawyer to help you handle your claim. As you probably already know, even your own insurance company will try to pay you the least amount as possible.

The attorneys at Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd. are experienced in negotiating with insurance companies that do not want to pay the maximum amount you are entitled to, and will aggressively fight for justice in your auto accident and injury claim.
