Answers To Common Questions About Personal Injury Cases
Below are a few questions that we often hear regarding personal injury claims and lawsuits. For personalized responses, consult with an attorney.
What Types Of Compensation Can I Receive After An Accident?
The types of compensation available to you after an accident will depend on the circumstances of the accident, applicable legal issues and the seriousness of your injuries. You may recover compensation for one or more of the following after suffering accidental injuries:
- Economic losses, such as medical bills and lost wage replacement
- Noneconomic losses, including pain and suffering
- Punitive damages to account for a negligent party’s wrongdoing
Numerous circumstantial, medical and legal factors will help determine what kinds and amounts of compensation you may be eligible for after an accident.
How Soon Do I Need To Make An Injury Claim Or File A Lawsuit?
The statute of limitation for filing a personal injury lawsuit in Illinois is two years in most cases. This may sound like plenty of time, but the time needed for an investigation and various legal processes can be substantial.
How Long Does A Personal Injury Case Take To Settle?
You might receive compensation in a few months or in a year or longer. The severity of your injuries and other factors will help determine the answer. If we represent you, we will communicate with your medical providers in the meantime so that you can receive care before the compensation arrives.
