What Kind of Damages Can I Win in a Personal Injury Claim?

Most people understand that medical treatment for injuries suffered in an accident may be recovered when mounting a personal injury claim, but we fight for all of the damages you may be entitled to. Those include not only medical treatment, but also potentially pain and suffering, lost wages, loss of employability, loss of consortium (familial relationship), and even punitive damages should the negligence or wrongful actions warrant such an award. Other kinds of damages you may be entitled to include:

  • Future medical bills (e.g., follow-up treatment and/or procedures, prescription medication, physical therapy, surgeries, etc.)
  • Mental health treatment (including PTSD and anxiety/depression treatment)
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Disfigurement or disability

How Much Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?

It’s difficult to say how much any individual personal injury claim is worth, and the reason is that there are so many factors that go into determining compensation in any claim. You have medical care costs, lost wages and sometimes pain and suffering. However, you also may have future medical care to consider (often delayed injuries may result from an auto accident, for instance); loss of employability; loss of consortium (enjoyment of intangible benefits of a relationship); punitive damages and more. An experienced personal injury attorney can help evaluate your claim and give you a better picture of what you might be eligible to receive. But truly, your claim must be evaluated before you can begin to get an accurate picture of what it might be worth.



How Much Does it Cost to Have My Claim Evaluated By Bizzieri Law Offices?

There is no cost for the case review at Bizzieri Law Offices. Simply set up an appointment to meet with an attorney and you’ll get a free case evaluation.

How Much Does it Cost to Hire an Attorney at Bizzieri Law Offices?

There is no cost to hire a personal injury attorney at our offices. If you case is reviewed and we represent you, we don’t charge a fee unless we recover damages for you.

How Should I Respond When the Defendant’s Insurer Contacts Me to Get My Side of the Story?

Typically, the at-fault individual’s insurer’s goal is to mitigate losses in as much as is possible. Your personal injury attorney’s job is to maximize the compensation you’re entitled to. In most cases, it’s best to allow your attorney to speak with the insurer on your behalf. You don’t want to take a chance and say anything that can be misconstrued, or used against you in court. Ensure your attorney has all the facts and can accurately speak on your behalf, and you should be protected from any of the kind of manipulative strategies some insurers have employed in the past.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Illinois?

For most personal injury claims in the State of Illinois, the statute of limitations on filing a personal injury claim is 2 years from the date of the accident. For wrongful death cases, the deadline starts on the date of death.  For medical malpractice claims, the deadline begins typically on the date of the injury. However, if you discover the injury later than that date, you may have no longer than four years to file suit.  It’s best to have your case evaluated by an experienced personal injury attorney to get a clearer picture of your individual situation.

What If I'm Offered a Quick Settlement Offer After the Accident?

Insurers are motivated to end personal injury claims as quickly and as inexpensively as possible. The fact that you have been made an offer shows you have a worthwhile claim. However, it also shows that you likely would be leaving a substantial amount on the table if you sign a settlement agreement. Signing an agreement typically means signing away your rights to further compensation. That could include further medical treatment resulting from the accident down the line.  You could also be missing out on lost compensation, punitive damages and much, much more. It’s always best to have your claim evaluated by an experienced personal injury attorney to get a clearer picture of what you’re entitled to before signing away your right to the full scope of the damages you’re entitlted to.

How Long Does It Take to Recover Funds After a Personal Injury Suit Has Been Filed?

Every claim is different, and personal injury cases may span several months to years depending upon the level of severity of the plaintiff’s injuries, the complexity of your claim, who is at fault and more. Again, it’s best to have your claim evaluated by an experienced personal injury attorney to determine the potential length of the fight for compensation in your individual case.
