Accidental injuries happen unexpectedly and for a variety of reasons. You might have been injured in a car accident, as the result of a slip, trip, or fall, or due to a defective product. However your accident occurred, you are now left with serious, perhaps even permanent, injuries that can impact your future health and well-being as well as your ability to provide for your loved ones. For individuals who have been hurt as the result of an accident or someone’s reckless or negligent conduct, help is available to deal with the medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses you suffered as the result of your accident. Personal injury lawsuits seek compensation for injured victims and this compensation can go a long way toward ensuring you make a full recovery from your injury.
Personal injury accidents can result in a variety of serious injuries which can require treatment and rehabilitation long after your accident’s occurrence. Accidental injuries such as concussion, fractures, muscle or tendon strains and sprains, and bruised or ruptured disks can all have lingering effects that could impact your ability to work as well as your ability to participate in hobbies and activities you once enjoyed. Under Section 735 of the Illinois Compiled Statutes, people who have been injured are entitled to compensation for those injuries, depending on the type of accident in which they were involved and who was responsible for it. The types of compensation you may be entitled to receive under Illinois law include:
In certain cases, the actions of another party which led to your injury may have been particularly reckless or negligent, such as a driver who hit you while driving at a high speed or while under the influence of alcohol, or a product manufacturer who knowingly sold a product that was a danger to consumers. In these cases, you may be entitled to additional compensation for the damages you have suffered. Under the Illinois Compiled Statutes, punitive damage awards are meant to punish the party responsible for your injury and deter others from engaging in similar types of conduct. These damages are in addition to any other compensation you are awarded and are likely to be as much as two or three times the amount of your total personal injury claim.
