Overview: What Defines A Personal Injury

Personal injury falls under a type of civil law known as tort law. Tort law operates on the principle that everyone is responsible for his or her actions. Civil law, unlike criminal law, does not require that a law be broken. If a party causes harm to come to you, they can be held responsible for their actions. Sometimes an insurance company will handle this, while other times you will need to go to court. 

A personal injury occurs when another individual or corporation injures your body, mind, or emotional well-being. If you have been injured or otherwise harmed as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your suffering.

In personal injury claims, we have to prove two things: liability and damages. Liability determines that the other party is at fault for your injuries. Once this is proven, we use our records to argue for damages and prove that the amount we have requested is appropriate to your pain and suffering. This may include present and future medical costs, loss of wages, diminished earning capacity, and more.

If you or a loved one have been the victim of someone else’s negligence, you deserve the experienced legal advice we can give. Whether you’re facing medical costs, loss of work, pain and suffering, or other associated costs, you shouldn’t have to risk financial ruin because of someone else’s actions. 

Filing a claim in civil court can help you recover lost wages and pay for associated expenses. Thanks to Illinois’s comparative fault laws, even if you share some responsibility for the accident, you may still be eligible for compensation if the other party is more than 50% responsible for your injury.
