Why File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
Lawsuits aren’t always as dramatic as they seem in TV and movies. In fact, most lawsuits settle before they even reach the courtroom. While all lawsuits seek justice, justice does not always mean punishing the wrongdoer, either.
Personal injury lawsuits are designed to help you move forward after preventable accidents and injuries. Instead of punishing the person who caused your accident, legal action simply helps ensure that you do not have to suffer the consequences of the accident on your own. The at-fault party will pay for your “damages,” usually through their insurance company.
Damages refer to the injuries and losses you suffered as a result of the accident. They typically compensate you for:
- Medical bills
- Missed wages
- Rehabilitative care
- Decreased earning potential
- Changes to your quality of life
- Pain and suffering
- And more
No amount of money can change what happened, but these resources can make it easier for you to move forward. Sometimes, you may also receive “exemplary damages,” which help discourage future accidents, as well.
Our Country Club Hills personal injury attorney fights for the funds you deserve.
Common Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury claims don’t apply to every situation. When someone harms you with their careless action or inaction, however, a personal injury case may be appropriate.
Panio Law Offices helps clients with the following claims:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle crashes
- Semi-truck accidents
- Dog bites
- Bike crashes
- Workplace accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home abuse
- Birth injuries
- Brain injuries
- Injuries on someone else’s property
- Defective products
If you’ve been harmed by a careless driver, an irresponsible doctor, or an off-leash dog, we can help you explore your legal options.
The key to winning a personal injury claim is proving negligence. Our attorneys can gather evidence, investigate your accident, and help you show that:
- The person who harmed you (the defendant) owed you a duty of care
- The defendant breached that duty
- You were harmed
- Your injury is a result of the defendant’s breach
Motor vehicle accidents are the most common personal injury claims, so we can use a car crash as an example. All drivers in Country Club Hills (and across the United States) owe a duty of care to those around them. As such, we will only need to prove that the at-fault driver was careless and caused an accident. If you have any pre-existing conditions, we will also need to show how the accident caused or exacerbated your injuries.
Typically, we do this by showing the police report, your medical bills, and all other relevant evidence. The at-fault driver might have sent a text message moments before the accident or had a blood alcohol concentration during the collision. Sometimes, we have to dig deep to find this evidence, but we will fight for your rights at every phase of the legal process.
