Personal Injury Compensation in Granite City, IL
When you seek compensation, it’s not solely about financial gain; it’s about justice. Personal injury law was designed to fairly compensate an injured individual for expenses caused by someone else, thereby, giving the victim a fighting chance to be made whole again.
After consulting with an experienced Granite City personal injury lawyer, you might be able to hold the negligent entities liable for future and present 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 precise amount of recoverable damages will depend upon your specific situation, such as 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 may be able to seek damages by either pursuing a claim with the negligent party’s insurance or filing a lawsuit against them in the city of Granite City; however, it may be hard to determine if you have a leg to stand on in either case.
In order to succeed, you must meet two essential elements: damages and fault. For example, an individual, company, or employee(s) of a business must perform a wrongful act or default on 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 under IL statute of limitations.
If you are still unsure if you have a case, an experienced Granite City personal injury lawyer at The Hayden Law Firm can discover 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 large insurance companies have a vested interest in limiting their liability and will therefore pressure you to make quick decisions on a settlement offer that might 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 this process well and want to make it as easy as possible for you.
