What Qualifies as a Personal Injury?

A personal injury is one in which the negligence or the irresponsible behavior of another causes you to suffer a serious physical disability, mental impairment, or financial harm. Injuries arise in a wide array of accidents, such as automobile accidents, truck accidentsmotorcycle accidents, boat accidents, medical malpractice, product defects, railroad crossing collisionsdefects in premises, and many other areas.

When serious or catastrophic injuries, or even wrongful death, occur, an experienced personal injury lawyer is essential to protect your rights and recover damages from the liable party.

When you or someone you love has been injured in a personal injury accident, regaining your health and getting life “back to normal” may be difficult. If the injuries are catastrophic, such as a brain, spinal cord, or burn injury or the loss of a limb, you may need rehabilitation or assisted care for the rest of your life. These types of serious injuries and others may prevent you from working and, as such, the loss of income and piling medical bills further add to the stress you and your family must endure.

    FAQ

    • What is the average settlement for a personal injury?

      Because every personal injury claim is different, it is difficult to determine an average settlement. A victim who lost a limb will likely need to receive more in medical expenses than someone who broke an arm, for instance. This means that personal injury claims tend to average anywhere between $3000 to $75,000—an extremely broad range. An attorney can help you estimate your unique losses based on the facts of your case. You should be entitled to make up for your specific losses at the very least.

    • What evidence is needed for a personal injury claim?

      Necessary evidence can vary case by case depending on the specifics of your situation. However, one of the most helpful pieces of evidence is your medical records. If you can prove that you sought medical attention for a serious injury after an accident, you are more likely to receive compensation to cover the expenses associated with said injury. Other helpful evidence includes any photographs of the accident scene, accident reports, witness statements, insurance forms, receipts, and any other physical evidence related to the injury.

    • What is the personal injury statute of limitations in Illinois?

      Under state law, the statute of limitations (or deadline) for most personal injury claims in Illinois is two years from the date of the accident. However, for claims against governmental agencies, there are special limitation periods that may be as short as a year. You should always consult with an attorney on what particular limitations period might apply to your claim. You should seek legal help immediately, as a delay may be fatal to your claim. Unless you have a special exception, your claim will be thrown out if you attempt to file after the limitations period has passed.


      Because every personal injury claim is different, it is difficult to determine an average settlement. A victim who lost a limb will likely need to receive more in medical expenses than someone who broke an arm, for instance. Although personal injury claims tend to average anywhere between $3000 to $75,000—an extremely broad range—there may be significant economic and noneconomic factors in your individual case that may indicate that your particular claim would be valued at a significantly higher figure at trial in front of a jury. An attorney can help you estimate your unique losses based on the facts of your case. The knowledge of an attorney experienced in jury verdict value is extremely important. You should be entitled to make up for your specific losses at the very least.
