Damages for an IL personal injury claim may be for the pain, suffering, bills for reasonable and necessary medical treatment, wages loss, and loss of earning capacity.
Common Factors To Assessing Personal Injury Claim Damages in May Illinois Include:
- Type of personal injury
- Loss of Normal Life
- The extent of immediate continuous medical care and treatment
- Costs of medical care and treatment
- Loss of earnings
The court or jury may also award punitive damages (in addition to compensatory damages). Furthermore, punitive damages will often consider the amount of pain and suffering the victim experienced. These types of damages can be to punish the defendants for their wrongdoing, as pain and suffering can never be sufficiently compensated.
Insurance companies don’t like to pay high damage car accident claims or jury verdicts
Insurcompanies routinely offer unrepresented claimants far much less than claimants who hired attorneys. Experience matters. The fact is that lawyers and adjusters who regularly settle injury claims for a living do better than a claimant who usually has no or little experience in negotiating a personal injury claim.
