Personal Injury Damages in Chester, IL

Your case is about more than financial gain; it’s about making things right. Personal injury law was put in place to fairly compensate a hurt individual for losses caused by someone else, thereby, allowing the victim an opportunity to put their life back together again.

After consulting with an experienced Chester personal injury lawyer, you may be able to hold the appropriate parties accountable for present and future compensation.

These personal injury damages include, but are not limited to:

  • Past, present, and future medical expenses from injuries
  • Rehabilitation and therapy expenses
  • Permanent disability or disfigurement
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental or emotional distress
  • Property damage

The precise amount of recoverable damages will depend upon your specific situation, such as the degree of your injuries and how the accident impacted your life.

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 Chester 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, a person, business, or employee(s) of a company must commit a wrongful act or fail at their duty to prevent dangerous situations in order to be guilty of negligence and thus held accountable 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 Chester personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can determine if you have sufficient evidence to effectively seek damages and prove fault. Contact us now.


In many cases, claims for personal injury are settled out of court before ever reaching the trial stage; however, we will never hesitate to go to trial if large insurance companies refuse to pay what’s fair.

These big insurance companies have a vested interest in limiting their liability and will therefore pressure you into accepting a settlement offer that might not be in your long-term best interests. Without someone on your side, you could lose out on getting sufficient coverage for your losses.

Furthermore, the personal injury claim process is made up of complicated details, paperwork, unexpected obstacles, and unfair denials. With our extensive experience, we know the ins and outs of the process and want to make it as easy as possible for you.
