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
