Frequently Asked Questions We Hear
Personal injury claims can quickly become overwhelming, especially when you are focused on recovering both physically and emotionally from your accident. Our experienced lawyers are here to answer your questions and discuss your case. In the meantime, we have offered answers to frequently asked questions we hear below.
What compensation might I be entitled to after suffering a serious injury?
Compensation in a personal injury case typically falls into two categories: economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages cover actual financial losses, such as medical expenses and lost income. Noneconomic damages refer to damages such as pain and suffering, mental anguish and loss of enjoyment of life. Based on the facts of your case, we can help you determine which damages to pursue.
How much is my case worth?
The value of each case depends on the specifics of your case itself and your injuries. However, it is important to understand that insurance companies will often try to settle early for far less than the full compensation to which you may be entitled. We can help you determine how much your case is worth, what types of damages you may be entitled to and how to proceed to obtain that compensation.
Will I need to go to trial?
While settlements in personal injury cases are common and sometimes preferred, this is not always the best option for you. Our attorneys have obtained both successful verdicts in trial and settlements out of court. We will do everything we can to follow your wishes and help you achieve the most favorable outcome possible. If your case does need to go to trial, you can trust in our attorneys’ litigation knowledge and experience going up against big names in high-profile cases.
Who can file a lawsuit after losing a loved one?
Each state has unique laws regarding wrongful death lawsuits and who can file them on behalf of the deceased. In Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio, the appointed personal representative of the deceased person’s estate can file a wrongful death lawsuit. The court will choose someone to manage the estate if the deceased did not appoint someone through a will. Only certain family members or individuals eligible to inherit the estate can recover monetary damages from a wrongful death lawsuit.
