Common Injuries in Rockford
Illinois personal injury law allows you to pursue compensation for injuries caused by someone’s negligent act. Our Rockford injury law firm handles a wide range of accidents and injuries:
According to the most recent data available from the Illinois Department of Transportation, there were 4,223 reported car crashes in Rockford. When another driver is at fault, you could file a claim against their insurance.
Accidents involving trucks often result in catastrophic or fatal injuries. An attorney helps determine a value for damages to pay for medical care and lost income.
Other Traffic Accidents
When motorists fail to obey the rules of the road, injuries usually occur. A dedicated lawyer protects the rights of pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcycle riders, and their passengers.
You have the right to expect a safe environment when you visit someone’s home, business, or property. When property owners are reckless, they can be held liable.
Medical error is the third leading cause of death in America. Negligent doctors and other healthcare professionals are not immune to lawsuits for substandard care.
Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect
Seniors don’t give up their rights when they enter a nursing facility. Nursing home staff and owners can be held accountable for residents who suffer abuse and neglect.
In a rush to get their product in stores, some companies cut corners on safety. It is your right to pursue compensation for defective or dangerous products.
Workplace injuries happen all the time. If a third party caused or contributed to your pain and loss, you could file a lawsuit to recover damages.
Dog Bites & Animal Attacks
It’s the dog that bites, but the owner bears the responsibility. The owner’s liability or property insurance typically covers damages related to dog bites and animal attacks.
Losing a loved one because of someone’s careless act or failure to act is painful beyond words. A wrongful death lawsuit could ease surviving family members’ financial and emotional pain.
Traumatic Brain & Other Catastrophic Injuries
The cost of treating traumatic brain and other devastating injuries would bankrupt most families. Fortunately, there are legal remedies to hold the liable parties accountable.
How a Rockford Personal Injury Lawyer Helps
A lawyer uses knowledge of state liability laws and the insurance claim process to help you get a fair settlement.
According to a recent survey, injured people who worked with a personal injury attorney were 40% more likely to receive a settlement than those without representation. The average payout for individuals with an attorney was approximately three times higher than unrepresented people.
Damages You Could Be Entitled To
Your compensation should cover both economic and non-economic (emotional) damages, such as:
- Past & future medical care
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Property damage
- Loss of consortium
- Pain & suffering
- Emotional distress
- Funeral & burial expenses
An Attorney Handles Everything for You
You see a doctor for your injuries because they have the proper training and knowledge to help you. A personal injury lawyer in Rockford has the education and in-depth understanding of civil law to handle the many details in your case.
Gather Evidence to Identify Liable Parties
An attorney examines photos, videos, crash reports, and other evidence to identify all liable parties.
Determine Scope of Injuries
How much your injury claim is worth depends on your injuries. It’s not only physical injuries – you deserve compensation for your emotional suffering.
File a Detailed Insurance Claim
An attorney prepares your insurance claim and includes all relevant documentation.
Negotiate a Fair Settlement
You deserve a skilled negotiator to help maximize compensation for your past and future expenses.
Take Your Case to Court
The majority of personal injury cases in Rockford end with an insurance settlement. When negotiations fall through, you’ll want a trial-tested litigator presenting your case to a jury.
When you file an accident claim with the other person’s insurance, they’ll want proof that their policyholder is to blame.
An attorney establishes liability based on five elements of negligence:
- A duty of care or legal responsibility existed.
- The other party owed you this duty of care.
- The other party neglected this duty of care.
- This negligence caused you harm.
- You have damages in the form of injuries or financial loss as a result.
You Have Limited Time to File
Illinois law imposes a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury lawsuits. You must file a legal complaint before this deadline or lose your chance to recover compensation.
