Types of Ottawa Personal Injuries We Handle

Throughout northern and western parts of Illinois, accidents can take on a new meaning. Fender benders in an urban center may result in scrapes and minor injuries, but head-on collisions at 70 miles per hour are not uncommon on Illinois backroads. Farm accidents, industrial injuries, and any number of unique situations can give rise to life-changing injuries in Ottawa and the surrounding areas of Illinois. Here are just a few examples of cases our firm handles:

Compensation Available After an Ottawa Personal Injury

Illinois law provides three basic forms of compensation for injuries – economic, non-economic, and punitive. This is what you need to know about each.

  • Economic Damages are those losses that are financial in nature and can be calculated numerically. These include things like reimbursement for medical expenses, money to make up for lost time at work, and even reimbursement for travel and out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of your injuries.
  • Non-Economic Damages are those things that are not so easily defined by numerical values. Things like pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of a normal life are considered non-economic. Yet, the law still considers these a real form of injury that is to be compensated like any other.
  • Punitive Damages are rarely awarded, but powerful. They are meant to punish wrongdoers and change behavior. Major corporations that knowingly and willfully put the public in danger for a profit are often the most likely targets of punitive damages. These are meant to send a clear message to stop doing something dangerous or reckless. Again, though, they are highly rare in Illinois.
