If you have been involved in a serious car accident, there is a good chance that you will need extensive medical treatment, physical therapy, and/or occupational therapy to get you back on your feet. Medical treatment and hospital or nursing home stays are expensive, and you deserve to recover compensation – even if your health insurance covers some or all of these bills. You also deserve to be compensated for any and all income that you’ve lost because you were or are unable to work.
Payment of your medical bills and lost wages, however, are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to personal injury damages. In addition to recovering these , you may also be eligible to recover in your case. This is particularly true if you sustain permanent injuries in your car accident. Noneconomic damages are those which cannot be measured strictly in dollars and cents, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, and mental anguish.
No one asks to be involved in a serious car accident, much less injured. If you or a loved one has sustained injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible to pursue monetary compensation. The Chicago lawyers at Abels & Annes, P.C. can discuss the facts of your case with you and explore the different types of economic and noneconomic damages that may be available. Our lawyers can then pursue monetary compensation on your behalf, via settlement, trial, or alternative dispute resolution.
