New Lenox Personal Injury Attorney

What You Need to Know About Personal Injury Claims

Personal injuries are the result of negligence or the deliberate fault of another. The New Lenox, Illinois law firm of Marshall W. Conick, Attorney at Law will help you understand what is required to file a personal injury claim and consult with you to provide a clear path of expectation. At our firm, we faithfully serve the disabled and injured. We help claimants overcome challenging hurdles in the midst of pain and confusion and help them obtain the maximum amount of compensation.

If You are Injured, You Have a Right to Seek Compensation

In general, the person who causes or engages in actions that contribute to an accident causing bodily harm or death is held responsible. In Illinois, you have a limited amount of time to file a claim for yourself or a loved one in a personal injury matter.

Depending on the details of a claim, the time period for filing a claim may be based on the awareness of the injury and not the date of the actual accident. There are also exceptions based on the mental state and the age of the claimant. Such exceptions delay the clock on the statute of limitations in personal injury cases. Because every case is unique, Marshall W. Conick, Attorney at Law will help you understand the specific path to follow to file your claim.

You have the right to seek compensation and the amount will be determined based on the type of personal injury sustained, the degree of injury and the total negligence or intention of the party or parties at fault. Compensation from personal injury cases may include money for medical treatment, lost wages, disability and overall pain and suffering.
