Personal Injury Damages in Belleville, IL
Your case is about more than financial gain; it’s about making things right. Personal injury law was designed to fairly compensate an injured individual for losses caused by another person’s negligence, thereby, allowing the victim an opportunity to put their life back together again.
After consulting with an experienced Belleville personal injury lawyer, you might be able to hold the negligent entities liable for present and future compensation.
These personal injury damages include, but are not limited to:
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Rehabilitation and therapy expenses
- Past, present, and future medical expenses from injuries
- Mental or emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability or disfigurement
The maximum amount of recoverable damages is different for everyone and will depend upon how the accident impacted your life, the degree of your injuries, and more.
How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Case?
You can recover damages by either filing a personal injury claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company or by filing a personal injury lawsuit against them in the Belleville courts; however, it may be hard to determine if you have a leg to stand on in either case.
In order to succeed, you must be able to prove two critical items: fault and damages. For instance, an individual, company, or employee(s) of a business must commit a wrongful act or fail at their duty to prevent dangerous situations in order to be guilty of negligence and thus held liable for your injuries. Furthermore, the accident must meet time restrictions set forth by IL statute of limitations.
If you need further help determining if you have a personal injury case, an experienced Belleville personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can determine if you have sufficient evidence to appropriately prove fault and seek damages. Contact us now.
Often, personal injury claims are settled before reaching trial but, if one becomes necessary, we do not hesitate to face large insurance companies to get the amount of compensation you find fair for your injuries.
These large insurance companies will do anything they can to limit their liability and will therefore pressure you into accepting a settlement offer that may not be in your best interests long-term. Without effective legal representation, you may lose out on gaining sufficient compensation to cover your losses.
Furthermore, the personal injury claim process is made up of paperwork, unexpected obstacles, unfair denials, and complicated details. Using our extensive experience, we know the ins and outs of the process and want to make it as simple as possible for you.
