Chicago Personal Injury Lawyer

If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, the legal damages – or physical, financial, and emotional losses – you face can stand in the way of your recovery. An experienced Chicago personal injury lawyer, however, can help you obtain the compensation to which you are entitled – on your path forward toward renewed health and well-being. 

Common Personal Injury Claims

No two personal injury claims ever share identical circumstances, but most fall into common categories like the following:

  • Car accidents 
  • Commercial truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bike accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents and other kinds of premises liability claims
  • Product liability claims related to defective commercial goods

Wrongful death claims are also based on negligence, and they proceed in much the same way that personal injury claims do.

The Necessary Elements of a Personal Injury Claim

In order to recover on your losses through a personal injury claim, all the following primary elements must be present:

  • You were owed a duty of care by the at-fault party. This means that they had a responsibility in relation to your safety, and the most obvious example is the responsibility we take on – in relation to everyone else on the road – when we get behind the wheel of a vehicle.
  • The duty of care owed to you was breached. For example, when a motorist speeds, is impaired, or engages in any other form of negligence, they breach that duty of care owed.  
  • This failure to uphold the duty of care owed to you by the other party was the direct cause of the accident in question.
  • You suffered legal damages – or losses that are addressed by the law – as a result.

Your Covered Losses

In your personal injury claim, you can seek compensation for all the following losses:

  • Medical expenses, which may include healthcare needs that stretch into the future
  • Lost income, which may include losses related to your capacity to earn into the future
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering, which can lead to lifelong struggles

Safeguarding Your Claim

Your personal injury claim is important to your recovery, and all the following can help you protect both your health and your claim:

  • Seek the immediate medical attention that you need.
  • Reach out to a dedicated personal injury attorney as soon as you are able to do so.
  • Follow your doctor’s guidance carefully. 
  • Refrain from providing the insurance company with a statement – your personal injury attorney is better equipped to handle them.
  • Take a holiday from social media – the insurance company is watching, and the less raw material you give them, the better.
