How Long Do You Have To File a Personal Injury Claim?
Various statutes of limitations in Illinois limit the amount of time you have to file your personal injury claim in Lake County. Therefore, you should consult with personal injury lawyer Bogie Martinovich as soon as you think you may have a case to ensure that your right to recover compensation is protected. If you fail to take legal action before the statute of limitations expires, you will no longer be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit.
Damages You Could Recover in a Personal Injury Case
Various types of damages may be recoverable in your personal injury case. Personal injury law categorizes these damages as economic damages, non-economic damages, and punitive damages.
The way your accident happened, the severity of your injuries, and the losses you suffered, will determine what damages may be available to you.
Our legal team can help you identify the types of damages that you may be entitled to receive.
Economic damages are available in all types of personal injury claims in Lake County, Illinois. Your economic damages include your monetary losses, like your medical bills, future medical treatment, and prescription medications, your lost wages and future lost wages, lost profits and impaired earning capacity.
Non-economic damages are not tied to your financial losses, but rather your pain, suffering and disability. If non-economic damages apply to your case, you may be able to recover compensation for things like your emotional distress, loss of everyday enjoyment of life, and physical pain.
Punitive damages are rarely awarded except in the most egregious cases. If your injury claim involves a drunk driver, or someone who acted maliciously, or with reckless disregard for your safety or that of the public, you may be entitled to punitive damages. Unlike economic and non-economic damages, which are designed to compensate you for your losses, punitive damages are intended to punish the wrongdoer and make an example of him or her to prevent similar occurrences in the future.

Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer to Handle Your Claim?
Although Illinois does not require accident victims to hire personal injury attorneys to handle their claims and lawsuits, handling your case on your own may jeopardize your financial recovery.
Personal injury lawyers in Lake County significantly increase your chances of recovering full and fair compensation for your losses. In fact, victims who hire attorneys recover substantially more in personal injury claims and lawsuits. Why?
Without legal representation, you will be forced to negotiate with the insurance company and their team of representatives, adjusters, and attorneys, on your own. These parties will go to great lengths to minimize your injuries or claim they are not caused by their insured. They will often place blame for the accident on you. They are banking on the fact that you will settle your claim without taking them to court.
When you have an experienced personal injury lawyer to guide you through the legal system, insurers will take your claim more seriously. Generally, they will be more likely to offer a settlement that is sufficient to cover your medical expenses, lost income, and other losses.
