Personal Injury Statistics For Illinois

Injury accidents, unfortunately, are common across the state of Illinois. When they occur, victims and their families could struggle under the weight of unexpected medical bills, expensive repairs or replacement of vehicles or other property, and the loss of wages they need to support themselves and others.
Some of the most common types of injury accidents are motor vehicle crashes, including passenger vehicles, motorcycles, commercial trucks, and others. These accidents happen every day on the highways and roadways in our state. Below are some eye-opening statistics on just how frequently these accidents occur.

Motor vehicle crashes in Illinois

While motor vehicle crashes are some of the most common injury accidents, they are far from the only ways that people could be unexpectedly hurt in Illinois. When we are hurt or if we’ve become ill, we have the right to expect that the medical professionals who treat us will do so responsibly.

When a doctor, surgeon, pharmacist, nurse, or another medical professional fails to provide care that meets an acceptable standard, you could have a medical malpractice claim. Below are some interesting figures regarding medical malpractice in our state:

Medical Malpractice in Illinois

Negligent medical care can be devastating for the patient and their families. So too, can workplace accidents, which can be extremely harmful or even fatal. At Spiros Law, P.C., we know how hard people in our community work for their paychecks, and how devastating a workplace accident can be. Below are some figures regarding fatal workplace accidents in Illinois:

What Should I Do If I’ve Been Injured?

If you or a loved one has been injured, your priority should be to receive medical attention as soon as possible. It’s essential not only for the health of you or your loved one—many injuries require immediate attention to prevent further damage—but it’s also important for the prospects of your legal case.

To win your case, you must prove that your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence. This might include bodily injury, pain and suffering, or the cost of treatment. However, it’s difficult to prove damages without official records. Unless you see a medical professional soon after your injury, you might miss an important window in which you can obtain medical records proving that the negligence of another directly caused you harm. Keep in mind that the effects of some injuries might not manifest themselves for days, weeks, or months after the incident, so you should see a doctor after your accident even if you don’t notice anything wrong.

Also after the incident, do your best to accomplish the following:

Although you exchange insurance information, do not speak to an insurance representative until you have met with an attorney, who will likely handle that call. Otherwise, you could jeopardize your case.

Instead, as soon as possible, contact an attorney at Spiros Law, P.C. for an initial evaluation of your case. Having a trained professional by your side can help you efficiently and successfully navigate the legal system and collect evidence correctly to win your case. The sooner you make contact with an attorney, the more likely you will be able to collect sufficient evidence. Call (815) 929-9292 for a free, no-risk consultation today!

Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

No one wants to pay out of pocket for an accident that was not their fault. You certainly shouldn’t have to pay for someone’s poor decisions, but that doesn’t mean that the defendant and the insurance companies won’t fight tooth and nail to pay you as little as possible. Unfortunately for you, the defendant’s side likely has a team of lawyers that are actively collecting evidence to counter your case. They’ll be well-versed in how to point out insufficient evidence, find loopholes in Illinois laws and statutes, or work with witnesses that might testify against you. Without professional help, you might not stand a chance against their expertise.

We don’t want you to fight this battle alone. You’ve been through enough with the emotional and mental repercussions of your injury. That’s why we offer the services of our tight-knit team of partners, associates, private investigators, legal nurse consultants, and our supporting staff to take care of you and your case in Kankakee. Our reputation of fighting for “the little guy” is built upon our combined decades of experience treating clients like part of our Spiros Law, P.C. family.

What Types of Damages Can I Recover?

You might be able to receive economic damages, including:

You can also receive non-economic damages, or compensation for damages that don’t have a directly financial component but still negatively impact your life. These include:

In Illinois, damages are calculated using the modified comparative fault rule. This rule states that to collect compensation in a personal injury claim, you must be less than 50% at fault. If you are found to be 50% or more at fault, you are not eligible to seek compensation.

However, if you were less than 50% at fault for the accident, your award would be reduced by your own percentage of fault. So, if you were awarded $100,000, but were found to be 25% at fault for the accident, you’ll ultimately be eligible to collect $75,000 in compensation.
