What is “personal injury”?

“Personal injury” is the area of law that deals with both physical and psychological injuries sustained as a result of another person or company’s negligence.  A personal injury attorney can assist you with obtaining a settlement or may obtain a verdict on your behalf at trial.  Many types of accidents and injuries fall under the umbrella of personal injury:

Some injuries are not clearly visible; however, some brain damage and psychological damage can be equally debilitating.

Personal injury law does not cover damage to a person’s property.

What does the law say about personal injury?

Illinois law holds negligent parties responsible in cases of personal injury. If the physical pain, mental suffering and economic hardship caused by an accident or other injury could have been avoided but the person or company responsible created or failed to remove or fix a dangerous situation, their negligence played a part in causing the injuries.

The negligent parties may be held accountable for some of the financial burden that they helped to create. Although no amount of money can heal a person, give them back the time they lost or take away the psychological trauma associated with an event, legal compensation from personal injury suits can help to cover medical costs and loss of income resulting from the injury and aid the injured party in their recovery.

How do you know if you have a "good" personal injury case?

Our experienced personal injury attorneys can help you initiate a personal injury suit if your accident or injury was caused by another party’s negligent acts or omissions.

In addition, personal injury matters are rarely clear cut. Many times, there may be more than one party at fault, and sometimes, even the injured person may be partially responsible for his or her own injury.  However, that doesn’t mean the person cannot file a lawsuit.

We will take into account the circumstances of your injury and help you decide whether to file a personal injury lawsuit.
