Personal Injury Compensation in Bethalto, IL
Your case is about more than financial gain; it’s about making things right. Personal injury law was put in place to fairly compensate an injured individual for expenses caused by another person’s negligence, thereby, allowing the victim an opportunity to put their life back together again.

The precise amount of recoverable damages will depend upon your specific situation, such as the degree of your injuries and how the accident impacted your life.
How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Case?
You can recover damages by either filing a personal injury claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company or by filing a personal injury lawsuit against them in the Bethalto courts; however, it may be hard to determine if you have a leg to stand on in either case.
In order to succeed, you must be able to prove two critical items: damages and fault. For example, a person, business, or employee(s) of a company must perform a wrongful act or fail at their duty to prevent dangerous situations in order to be guilty of negligence and thus held accountable for your injuries. Furthermore, the accident must fall within time restrictions set forth under IL statute of limitations.
If you need further help determining if you have a personal injury case, an experienced Bethalto personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can determine if you have enough evidence to effectively prove fault and seek damages. Contact us now.
In many cases, claims for personal injury are settled out of court before ever reaching the trial stage; however, we will never hesitate to go to trial if large insurance companies refuse to pay what’s fair.
These large insurance companies have a vested interest in limiting their liability and will therefore pressure you to make quick decisions on a settlement offer that may not be in your best interests long-term. Without effective legal representation, you may lose out on gaining sufficient compensation to cover your losses.
Furthermore, the personal injury claim process is made up of complicated details, paperwork, unexpected obstacles, and unfair denials. With our extensive experience, we know this process well and want to make it as easy as possible for you.
