Injury Lawyers Chicago

Accidents happen. Sometimes, accidents result in injuries to one or more of the parties involved. When an accident is the result of one individual’s negligence, he or she is liable for any damages suffered by the victims. In fact, more than one party may be liable for a victim’s damages if they were all partially at fault for the accident.

If you are suffering from an injury following an accident that was not your fault, consider working with an experienced personal injury lawyer to pursue monetary compensation for your damages. Although you can seek compensation on your own, a lawyer has the knowledge and experience to give your case a better chance of resulting in a favorable settlement.

Examples of Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury cases can involve any type of accident. Examples of the personal injury claims our firm handles include:

  • Car accidents;
  • Construction accidents;
  • Dog bites;
  • Truck accidents;
  • Motorcycle accidents;
  • Slip and fall accidents;
  • Premises liability claims; and
  • Dangerous product claims.

We also work with clients pursuing workers’ compensation claims, which are quite different from personal injury claims. Both can be used to seek compensation for medical bills and lost wages, but workers’ compensation claims are strictly available to employees injured on the job and have additional filing deadlines and requirements that personal injury claims do not.

Seeking Compensation Through a Personal Injury Claim

After your accident, seek medical attention for your injury as soon as possible. Even if you do not feel like you were injured, seek medical attention anyway. Sometimes, injuries are not obvious when they are initially sustained but can become much more serious if they are left untreated. Having documentation that shows that you sought medical treatment in a timely manner after your accident will support your claim.

Other pieces of evidence you can use to support your personal injury claim include the official police report for the accident, if one exists, photographs of the accident site and your injury, documentation showing your lost wages, and your medical bill. Through a personal injury claim, you can seek compensation for your medical expenses, your lost wages, and your pain and suffering damages, which can include the emotional trauma following an accident and your need for support services like in-home domestic help as you recover.

In Illinois, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years from the date of the accident. Keep this statute of limitations in mind in the months that follow your accident – once two years elapse, most claims are no longer valid. After you receive medical attention, start working with a personal injury lawyer.
