What is 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 covers a variety of legal scenarios. This includes injuries sustained by negligence (for example, car accidents and truck accidents), assault and battery, medical malpractice, premise liability, and product liability. For a comprehensive list of potential personal injury situations and cases, visit the TorHoerman Personal Injury Page.

What to Expect When You File a Personal Injury Lawsuit

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

Finding a Personal Injury Attorney

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

Litigation Discovery

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

Resolving the Case

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