How to proceed after getting injured in an Accident
What you do during the time immediately following an accident can have a tremendous impact on the outcome of your personal injury case and your chances of getting fair and reasonable compensation for damages. It’s important that you let your personal injury lawyer know whether or not you were able to gather evidence at the scene and get medical attention for your injuries. Were you able to?
Seek medical attention – if your injuries were serious enough, emergency responders should have transported you to the hospital. However, even if your injuries don’t appear to be serious, you should still go to urgent care (or have a family member take you) and get checked out by medical personnel.
Take photos of the accident scene – these can be crucial pieces of evidence and go a long way to supporting your personal injury claim and/or lawsuit.
Naturally, after sustaining a serious injury in any type of accident, you should always discuss this with an SF Injury Law Group personal injury lawyer. Our lawyers are well-versed in liability laws and how the courts, insurance companies, and others operate in Wheeling, IL and the surrounding area.
The Basis of a Personal Injury Claim or Lawsuit
An injury resulting from an accident caused by another person’s or entity’s careless, negligent, or reckless actions or behavior is considered grounds for filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit. These elements must be proven in a personal injury case:
- You sustained injuries in an accident.
- The accident was caused by someone else’s negligence.
- The accident caused you harm and financial losses.
Just your injuries by themselves are not enough to show cause of personal injury. Some form of harm or loss must be attributed to your injuries as well. This additional caveat helps to keep “frivolous” lawsuits out of the Illinois courts. That is why it is important to contact us before you file a lawsuit on your own. We’ll look at the case in detail, judge its merit and then give you an honest opinion about it. If the case will hold in court, we’d represent your rights without charging you any upfront fee.
As we work on contingency basis, we’ll only charge a small percentage of the total damages we help you win and if we don’t win any damages, you don’t have to pay us. We are here to help you get relief from the constant financial worry and allow you to rest and recover with a peaceful mind.
In a personal injury case, you could be eligible for the following damages:
- property damage
- Mental pain and suffering
- loss of normal lifestyle
- lost wages and future income
- medical expenses
- mental trauma
