Personal Injury Damages

Victims of personal injury accidents may be entitled to compensatory damages and possibly punitive damages. Compensatory damages are meant to compensate the victim for his or her injuries and may include money damages for medical expenses, lost wages, property damages, disfigurement, disability, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. Punitive damages, on the other hand, are intended to punish the negligent party for his or her wrongdoing and deter future misconduct.

Illinois law follows a modified comparative fault model of damage assessment, whereby personal injury damages are calculated based on how much a party is at fault for an accident. In other words, if a defendant is at least 51% at fault for a personal injury accident, the plaintiff will not be obligated to pay damages to the defendant even if the plaintiff was partially responsible for the accident. Other states apply a comparative negligence model of assessing liability and damages. A few states follow the contributory negligence model.

Act quicly to Protect Your Rights

If you have been the victim of a personal injury accident, such as medical malpractice, auto accident, product liability, or a slip and fall accident, it is important to act quickly to protect your rights. All personal injury claims must be filed within the applicable statute of limitations. Although statute of limitations differ depending jurisdiction and cause of action, in Illinois a personal injury lawsuit generally must be filed within two years of the date of the incident.
