Has your claim been denied due to any of these ridiculous reasons?

  1. You caused the accident therefor you have no claim.
  2. The police report says there were no visible signs of injury.
  3. Your injuries were pre-existing and not related to the accident.
  4. The type of doctor, treatment or facility used to treat your injuries was not appropriate.
  5. Your injuries cannot be that serious because you did not miss any work.

Attorney Robert Edens has heard all of these arguments and more. In his book, “The Rule of Fives,” Bob addresses what to do if your claim has been denied due to one of these excuses. He also alerts you to traps and tricks the insurance company hopes you will fall for, myths and misconceptions you may have heard about the insurance claim process and how to select an attorney or if you need one at all.

Many accident victims wrongfully assume the insurance company is genuinely on their side. The truth is that most insurance companies are only interested in paying as little as possible for your injuries in order to maximize their profits.

The five most common mistakes are:

  1. Providing a recorded statement.
  2. Settling your case too quickly and before you have had enough time to sufficiently heal.
  3. Failing to act immediately at the time of the accident.
  4. Falsifying your injuries and symptoms or failing to follow your doctor’s advice.
  5. Not hiring the right attorney or not hiring a lawyer at all.

If you have made one or more of the mistakes listed above please make an appointment by calling 847-395-2200 for a FREE, honest, no obligation, consultation. Once I become involved in your case, you no longer have to talk to any adjustors or the other party in the accident. The insurance company will immediately stop the game playing and get serious about paying you damages.

Insurance companies have closely guarded secrets that an average accident victim would not likely know. Their employees are trained to keep these secrets from you by not answering your questions, and by giving you vague, misleading, or even inaccurate information.

With 20 years of experience representing accident victims, Attorney Bob Edens knows hundreds of secrets the insurance companies do not want you to know and has listed the five most common reoccurring secrets in his book; “The Rule of Fives and How They Will Sabotage Your Case.” Get your FREE copy here. Once Bob represents you, the insurance companies know that they can’t hide from the truth. The playing field is now leveled.

If you have suffered a personal injury in a vehicle accident, from a dog bite or injured on the job, the insurance companies do not want you to know what your injuries are actually worth or how to find out, the long term consequences of your accident or what a third party claim is.

So if you, or someone you love, has suffered a car accident, a dog bite, a pedestrian accident, bicycle accident, knee injury, work related job call Bob at 847-395-2200 for a FREE, honest, no obligation, consultation.

Not all cases require assistance from an attorney. Generally cases with only a few thousand dollars’ worth of damages and or medical costs can easily be settled on your own. I encourage you to order my FREE book, The Rule of Fives, if you are considering handling your claim on your own. It will guide you through the process and help you successfully and confidently settle your case. However, if your case involves a significant amount of medical bills, lost wages, and other damages, it is likely that hiring an attorney will substantially benefit you in the end.

The best answer to the question of whether or not to hire a lawyer is to contact an experienced attorney and seek advice as to whether or not they recommend you retain legal counsel for your particular situation. I invite you to contact me for a free, honest evaluation of your case. Again, often times I recommend that people handle a case themselves and give them a substantial amount of advice and information on just how to do it. You are always welcome to contact my firm at 847-395-2200 to seek advice on the best course of action for your given circumstances. Remember, there is never a charge unless you win.

The first question most people want answered is who will pay my medical bills? Your medical bills will be paid by one of the insurance companies involved in your personal injury claim. Which one depends on the circumstances of the accident. If it was an auto, truck or motorcycle accident then it will be the at fault driver’s insurance company that is going to pay your medical bills, lost wages and other damages in the end. In the event the other driver does not have insurance, your own vehicle insurance will cover the expenses related to your personal injury case. In the interim, your auto insurance carrier will likely have a minimal amount of medical coverage. After that has been exhausted, your health insurance carrier will kick in to cover the remainder of your medical expenses.

If your injuries were caused by an “on the job accident” then your employer’s workers compensation (also known as workman’s comp) insurance company will pay your lost wages, medical bills and if applicable, your long-term or short-term disability payments.
Injuries that do not fall into either of the above categories might be covered under a home owner’s insurance policy or a business’s insurance company. If you are not sure where to turn for help getting your medical bills paid contact Attorney Robert Edens for assistance. Your consultation is always FREE and there are no fees unless you recover for your injuries and/or other damages. Call 847-395-2200
