How Much Compensation Will I Get from a Personal Injury Case?
It is important to understand that not all cases are the same, so the compensation amount is also different. That said, there is no set amount of compensation for your injuries – the court and/or settlement will have the final say on how much the damages will cost in your case.
In Illinois, each party involved in the accident is responsible for their percentage of fault. In other words, everyone shares the blame. Determining the percentage of fault is done by evaluating the evidence in the case.
Crucial evidence in a personal injury case may include:
- Security camera footage
- Dashcam footage
- Witness testimonies
- Medical records
- Insurance claims
- Phone logs
- And more
Once the judge thoroughly evaluates the evidence, he or she will determine the share of fault belonging to each party. For example, you are injured in a car accident and bring your case to court. After reviewing the evidence, the judge decides that you are at least 20% at fault because you made a turn without a signal. However, the other party has a higher percentage of fault because they were driving under the influence and ran a red light.
After fault is divided among both parties, the judge will finally decide how much out of the total damage award amount to distribute. If you are 20% at fault for the accident, the court will deduct that percentage from your damage award.
Ultimately, the final word on compensation lies with the court. Evidence and a strong case can go a long way toward a satisfying compensatory amount, but creating a claim is nearly impossible without the help of an experienced attorney.
