ABC’s of Personal Injury
You’ve probably heard the phrase “personal injury” and that Illinois law allows you to recover compensation for being injured.
If you’re uncertain of how it works, here are some basic facts:
- What constitutes an “injury”? Any harm you suffer to your body and any emotional or psychological trauma.
- It must be someone else’s fault that you were hurt. This means that a person, business or organization must have been careless or negligent and you were injured as a result.
- Lawyers work on a contingent-fee basis meaning they are paid a percentage of the money recovered for you from trial or settlement.
- Our firm pays for the expenses necessary to prosecute your claim, and we are reimbursed only if we are successful.
- What can you get? You can be compensated for medical bills, pain & suffering, lost income from having to miss work, cost of future medical care and more.
