Personal injury can occur as a result of many different types of accidents. These include accidents and injuries by car, motorcycle, truck, boat, dogs, bicycle, product, property or through work. No matter what the size of the accident is, it’s smart to talk to a personal injury lawyer to see if you have a case.

When to Contact a Personal Injury Attorney

Far too often, we think that the pain will disappear on its own after an accident… Especially if it’s minor. We want to brush it off and not make a ‘big deal’ out of it. However, the pain may continue to get worse and turn into more serious issues down the road. By then, it’s often too late to file a personal injury claim and get proper compensation.

Illinois Personal Injury FAQ

 

Types Of Personal Injury

  • Automobile Accidents
    Each year millions of people are injured in car accidents. These incidents are usually caused by the negligent actions of another driver, but accidents can also occur for a number of other reasons including:

    • Poorly maintained roads
    • Malfunctioning traffic control signals
    • Improper road design
    • Roadway obstructions
    • Defective vehicles

If you sustain injuries from a car accident, you should contact our Illinois personal injury attorney immediately. You will have a better chance of winning your case if the evidence of the accident is still fresh. If necessary, a law firm can hire an investigator to thoroughly analyze the scene of the accident.

  • Medical Malpractice
    Medical malpractice occurs when you receive injuries due to the actions of medical professionals or facilities. The grounds for malpractice range from negligence to the failure to maintain a medical facility. If a personal injury lawyer can discover the causes of your injuries, then you may be able to receive compensation. In malpractice cases, compensatory and punitive damages can be awarded. The former will reimburse you for any of your financial losses. For example, if you lost wage money due to missing work, compensatory damages can cover you. Punitive damages, on the other hand, punish the defendants in a malpractice case.
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
    One of the leading injuries that can cause significant long-term damage is a traumatic brain injury. This type of injury most often results from auto accidents, large truck crashes, sports injuries, and intentional assaults. In many cases, these types of injuries are permanent. Victims often need assistance to perform daily tasks and they usually suffer emotionally as well. Since most traumatic brain injuries result from negligence or intentional behavior, victims are often entitled to compensation for the damages they have incurred. A good lawyer can ensure that this happens.
  • Spinal Cord Injury
    In addition to traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries commonly result from car crashes or falls. They often cause paralysis or loss of motor function in certain areas of the body. For example, some victims experience weakness in their limbs. Many of these problems can be permanent, requiring lifelong care. Therefore, legal help is necessary for victims to be able to afford the medical care required after a spinal cord injury.
  • Airline Accidents
    While airplanes may be statistically the safest way to travel, accidents are still possible during the flight and in the airport. Unfortunately, when these accidents do occur, they are usually extremely severe. Sadly, many times the injury suffered is not only physical but emotional. People usually have extreme anxiety that needs long-term treatment. Thus, a good attorney who is experienced in airplane accident cases is essential to ensure that all medical costs –both emotional and physical – are paid for.
