Your Damages

If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, you have likely suffered damages that need to be addressed in your claim. Often such damages include:

  • Medical expenses such as emergency care and transportation, surgery and aftercare, medical appointments and treatments with doctors and specialists, prescription medications, future medical expenses associated with the injury, and/or adaptive physical devices
  • Property damage (your car – in a car accident – for example)
  • Lost hours and wages on the job
  • Diminished earning capacity into the future
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement

Every personal injury case is unique with its own set of circumstances and facts, and a dedicated personal injury lawyer can help ensure that your damages are represented in their entirety.

Your Rockford Personal Injury Claim

Personal injury claims are typically based on several important components, and there are important steps that you can take to help bolster your claim, including:

  • Seek immediate medical attention – this is not only in the best interest of your health but is also in the best interest of your case. Some injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries, can lie dormant until they become both more serious and more difficult to treat. Your medical records will go a long way toward supporting your claim.
  • Carefully follow all of the medical advice you are given.
  • Keep careful track of exactly how the injury negatively affects your life.
  • Bring your personal injury claim within Illinois’s statute of limitations, which in most instances is two years.

The Insurance Company and Your Compensation

If you have a personal injury claim, you’ll likely be dealing with the at-fault party’s insurance company. However, it is important to recognize that the insurance company is in the business of generating massive profits and that most manage to do this by minimizing settlement offers. You are not required to provide the insurance company with a formal statement, and you are well-advised not to do so. Instead, allow your skilled Rockford, personal injury lawyer, to negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf.
