What is Considered a Personal Injury?

The Nolo Plain-English Law Dictionary defines personal injury as:

“An injury not to property, but the body, mind, or emotions. For example, if you slip and fall on a banana peel in a grocery store, personal injury covers any actual physical harm (broken leg and bruises) you suffered in the fall as well as the humiliation of falling in public, but not the harm of shattering your watch.”

Personal injury encompasses a variety of legal situations. This includes injuries sustained from another person’s negligence (for example, an automobile accident), medical malpractice, premise liability, product liability, and assault and battery.

What To Expect When You File An Arlington Heights Personal Injury Lawsuit?

If you suffered from an injury, damages, or loss of well-being due to no fault of your own, you might be eligible for a personal injury lawsuit. Personal injury lawsuits vary case by case, but you can expect to take the following steps:

Hiring an Arlington Heights Personal Injury Attorney

Be mindful of Illinois’ Statute of Limitations. The SOL gives you a two-year window to file your injury or accident claim before it expires. Find a lawyer with years of experience in personal injury lawsuits with a successful record. You cannot expect every attorney to accept your case, so be sure to give yourself plenty of time for questions and research.

Litigation Discovery

Once you have a personal injury attorney for your case, the litigation discovery process will begin. Your attorney will help you assess damages and collect all relevant evidence, documents, and witness testimonies. These will be used to help prove liability.

Resolving the Case

After reviewing the case and gathering evidence, your attorney will decide whether or not to move forward with your suit. Your lawyer will determine if there is a potential for settlement and if there are compensatory or punitive damages. Some personal injury cases are solved outside of the court if both parties can agree on a settlement. If a settlement is not agreed upon, your case could go to trial.
