What Do Personal Injury Claims Cover?

The goal of a personal injury claim is to achieve financial compensation. The exact award will depend on the type of injury and on where and how it was sustained, but the personal injury specialist will seek to include the following in their estimate:

  • Medical Expenses: Healthcare is expensive and even a short-term issue or relatively minor injury can lead to thousands of dollars’ worth of fees. The claim will need to cover these fees as well as any future fees, from physiotherapy to prescription medication, surgeries and more.
  • Lost Earnings: Whether you lose the occasional day’s work attending doctor’s appointments or you’re forced to take several months off, your settlement will need to cover your lost earnings. This amount will be much larger if it is determined that you can never work again.
  • Pain, Suffering, and Personal Costs: Recovery can be a long, slow, and painful process and you need to be compensated for this. There may also be additional personal and property costs to consider, especially if you need to buy specialist equipment or adapt your home to meet your needs.

Medical Malpractice

  • Errors Involving Anesthesia
  • Injuries During Birth (brachial plexus, shoulder dystocia, Cerebral palsy)

  • Missed Diagnoses
  • Medication Errors

You may be entitled to a medical malpractice settlement even when you don’t realize it. This aspect of personal injury law is not limited to surgical mistakes and medication errors, as many assume. It also includes misdiagnoses. If you have were misdiagnosed for any of the following, then you may be able to claim:

  • Cancer

  • Mental Health Conditions

Road Accidents

  • Drunk Drivers
  • Underinsured or Uninsured Drivers

Over 1,000 people die on Illinois roads every year and thousands more suffer injuries that they may never fully recover from. Drunk drivers, uninsured drivers, speeding emergency vehicles, hit and runs—all these things are out of your control and if you are injured as a result of them then you can claim.
