Types of Recoverable Damages in your Chicago Personal Injury Case

Compensable losses in your personal injury or wrongful death case could comprise:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Lost income, tips, bonuses, and employee benefits
  • Property damage expenses
  • Medical bills, including anticipated expenses
  • Physical therapy and in-home nursing
  • Funeral expenses, including the casket, venue, and burial plot

You could be eligible for additional types of losses.

We Can Calculate the Value of Your Injury Case

It can be difficult to figure out how much your personal injury case could be worth, as it depends on a variety of factors, including:

  • The days in your recovery period
  • How much time you missed from work
  • Whether you can continue working
  • Your emotional state
  • Whether you lost a loved one
  • Your mobility, independence, and day-to-day function
  • Your economic damages
  • The nature of your losses

To understand the value of your case, we encourage you to discuss your situation with our injury team. While there are no guarantees, past verdicts can offer some insight into what constitutes a fair insurance settlement or court award.

What Can You do to Protect Your Case?

The steps that you take immediately after suffering an injury can have an impact on your ability to take legal action in the future. The following are only recommendations. However, they could mean the difference between a successful case and paying for your own losses. You should consider:

Seek Medical Attention

It is critical to seek medical treatment after a personal injury, regardless of whether you believe you have been seriously injured. The fact is that some injuries can take hours or days to become apparent.

If you wait to seek medical treatment until the symptoms worsen, you lose the ability to properly document your injuries.

Report Your Accident

If you were injured at a department store, notify the store’s management. If you were hurt in a car accident, you may be required to notify law enforcement. By reporting your accident, you begin a paper trail that can be used to support your allegations.

Keep Track of Your Losses

If any of the following come into your possession, keep them. They could be used to verify the cost of your damages. Documents to keep include: 

  • Medical bills
  • Property damage receipts
  • Invoices from your out-of-pocket expenses
  • Proof of purchase statements
  • Correspondence between yourself and the insurer

You don’t want to leave any money on the negotiating table when your case concludes. By keeping track of your damages, we can assign an appropriate value to your claim.

Will Your Case Go to Court?

Our goal is to reach a suitable settlement outside of the courtroom. Going to trial can be time-consuming. Per the American Bar Association (ABA), in many instances, personal injury cases are settled through insurance negotiations.

However, our team of personal injury lawyers is prepared to take your case to trial. We will present all available evidence, present your argument before a judge and jury, and cite state law. While your case unfolds, we will continue negotiating with the insurer. If they decide to offer fair compensation, you can accept that money, and we will drop the case.

You Have a Limited Time to File Your Lawsuit in Chicago

Even if you don’t intend on filing a lawsuit, it’s always good to be prepared. One way to do that is to understand the statute of limitations. According to 735 ILCS 5/13-202, you generally have two years to file your suit. You have the same period to file your wrongful death case.

By connecting with our team, not only can we evaluate this deadline, but we can also file your case’s paperwork within the appropriate timeline. By failing to file your case on time, you could lose the right to seek damages.

The courts would dismiss your case with prejudice, meaning you can never file it again––no matter how compelling your case is.
