I Need Compensation for My Devastating Car Accident Injury

 Posted on December 26, 2022 in Blog Post

Cook County car accident injury lawyerCurrently, some two million people are living with an amputation in the United States and traffic accidents are the second leading cause of amputations. No matter how cautious you may be behind the wheel, you are still putting your life at risk every time you take to the road. Catastrophic injuries suffered in a car accident can have a significant negative impact on your life and if you or a family member has been injured in a car crash, you should consider seeking car accident injury compensation.

Do Not Wait Too Long

We understand that your recovery is first and foremost. However, you cannot let too much time pass by. If your hope is to recover compensation for the injuries and losses you suffered, it is imperative that you take legal action before it is too late. In the state of Illinois, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit. 

If your injuries are the result of someone’s negligence, you deserve to be compensated for your damages. You may be entitled to compensation for past and future medical bills. These damages can include the following:


  • Medical expenses

  • Rehabilitation

  • Lost wages

  • Decreased future earnings

  • Pain and suffering

  • Disfigurement

Partial Responsibility and Recovering Damages

In Illinois, someone who is injured in a car crash may be able to recover damages if he or she is less than 50 percent at fault for the accident under a legal principle called modified comparative negligence. If you happen to be partially to blame for the accident, the amount of damages you could receive is reduced by your share of the fault. In the event that you were less than 50 percent at fault for a motor vehicle crash, you can seek compensation from the other driver or drivers through a personal injury lawsuit.
