Sometimes injuries happen, and there is nothing anyone could have done to prevent them. Other times, injuries arise out of accidents that could have been prevented. These accidents involve the liability of another person or party, such as another driver, a property owner, or even a healthcare provider. When you are left with mounting medical bills, missed income from not being able to work, and daily pain and suffering, a knowledgeable Chicago injury lawyer, is here to help make things right. You have the right to seek compensation for your damages, and an attorney can lead this process on your behalf.

Elements of an Injury Claim

When you meet with a Chicago injury attorney, they will be evaluating the circumstances of your injury to see if it meets the elements of successful injury claims. If it does, they can discuss how much your case might be worth. To pursue an injury claim, the following elements must exist:

  • Duty: Another person or party owed you a duty of care. For example, another driver should obey traffic laws and do what they can to avoid an accident.
  • Breach of Duty: The other person or party failed to provide you that duty of care, such as not stopping at a red light.
  • Causation: The breach of duty was the direct cause of your injury 
  • Damages: Your injuries caused damages such as pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost income

When Should You Contact a Chicago Injury Attorney?

If you have suffered an injury that was not your fault, it is a good idea to reach out to an attorney. Let them evaluate whether or not you have a claim. They can direct you to your next steps. 

You should contact an attorney as soon as possible after your injury for two reasons. First, valuable evidence will need to be gathered. If it is not collected promptly, it can be lost or destroyed, which could be detrimental to your case. Second, as per Illinois Compiled Statutes 735 §5/13-202, you have two years from the date of your accident to file your claim. In cases where an injury was not known about until a later date, the statute of limitations will run from the date the injury was discovered or should have reasonably been discovered.
