It is common in the area of civil law for different types of claims to have a statute of limitations. This is the legal term for the time limit a plaintiff (injured person) has to file their claim for damages. Many people do not know how long the statute of limitations is, or even that there is a deadline for filing their claim, and, as a result, miss their opportunity to pursue compensation.
Help Is Just A Phone Call Away
Don’t be taken advantage of! Many insurance companies and other businesses only have themselves in mind when working through these sorts of cases. With representation from an experienced Chicago Personal Injury attorney, you can rest easy, knowing that your rights are being upheld throughout every step of case proceedings.
If you have suffered an injury, it is imperative that you know how much time you have to submit your initial Personal Injury claim. In Illinois, the statute of limitations for injury claims is two years from the date the injury occurred. This includes civil claims for medical malpractice, product liability, and wrongful death. We highly recommend that you speak to a personal injury lawyer in Chicago as quickly as you can after your injury. The sooner your lawyer can start preparing your case, the better your chances of recovering the compensation you deserve.
What types of damages are covered by a Personal Injury claim? In Illinois, you are free to pursue compensation for both economic and non-economic damages, which includes items like:
- Medical bills
- Future medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Lost earning potential
- Property damages
- Therapy costs
- Emotional distress
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
When preparing for a Personal Injury case, it is incredibly helpful to your attorney if you keep a detailed record of your medical costs and other expenses that resulted from your injury. Additionally, unlike many states, Illinois law does not limit the amount of compensation that you can recover from a Personal Injury claim.
