A question we receive quite often is: Why should I hire a personal injury attorney? Our answer is simple: Most people, regardless of their intelligence, simply don't have the knowledge and experience to advocate for themselves effectively.

Insurance companies are businesses, BIG businesses. The founder of Willens Law Offices, Matthew L. Willens, used to be in management at a major Chicago-based insurance company. Having experience from both sides of the aisle has proven invaluable to the firm's clients.

Insurance companies, like any other business, are driven by bottom line dollars. They collect as much money as they can in premiums from individuals and businesses, then pay out as little as they can in claims. That's how they make millions, sometimes billions of dollars. The longer they can hold onto their money, the better for their bottom line. This isn't to say that insurance companies are wicked or immoral. However, it's important to remember that the only person working to protect your best interests is the lawyer you hire - not the insurance company trying to minimize their own damages.

To level the playing field, generally it makes sense for Illinois personal injury and workers' compensation claimants to retain skilled attorneys. A recent study found that claimants represented by lawyers received on average two to three times more than unrepresented claimants did. Statistically speaking, it just makes financial sense to get an attorney. In addition, you'll also save time and reduce your stress level about your case.

When you choose the Illinois personal injury attorneys of Willens Law Offices, you can be confident that a skilled trial attorney is protecting your rights. Since we don't get paid until you do, you can be assured that we are aggressively fighting for you.
