As careful as we may be, it is simply impossible to anticipate when a person or company that we come into contact with will act irresponsibility. Even the best planners can face an injury, medical complication or unexpected death of a loved one in the blink of an eye – when individuals and companies act irresponsibly or in the legal sense, negligently. Recognizing that negligence translates into real world pain, disfigurement and economic expense, the Illinois Legislature has long empowered an injured party to recover compensation from the at fault party. While such a recovery process may seem simple in principle, the truth is that from the instant an accident occurs, the interests of the injured and those who may be responsible for the incident are adverse. As the injured party, you have the burden of establishing that the other party was indeed the one who was responsible for causing the accident and that your injuries are causally related to the incident. We hope the resources we have created at Chicago Injury Center enable to you to make educated decisions when it comes to the handling of the legal and medical aspects of your case.
Getting Injured Is Never Fair
Everything from the type of medical care you receive, to the location and severity of your pain will be scrutinized by an attorney or insurance company at some point during the claim administration or litigation process of a personal injury case. Of course, it’s easy to second-guess the decision making process of an individual who may be injured in an accident months after an accident.
