WHAT IS PERSONAL INJURY ANDD WRONGFUL DEATH?

Personal injury is harm or damages caused to a person, such as a broken bone, concussion, loss of limb, loss of life, or other bodily injury, as a result of negligence, intentional tort, or misconduct. A person – who suffers from a personal injury – may file a claim or lawsuit to seek recovery or compensation for pain and suffering, loss of a normal life, lost wages, medical bills, and emotional distress.

In a wrongful death case, the claim or case is filed by a decedent’s personal or special representative (executor or administrator) to recover for the injuries and losses sustained by the decedent’s spouse or family (next of kin) resulting from the wrongful death of the decedent. In the same case, a survival action may be brought in behalf of the decedent’s estate to recover for personal injuries or damages sustained by the decedent – which had been caused and suffered by the decedent before death and current his or her lifetime.

WHAT ARE MY RIGHTS IF I HAVE BEEN WRONGED OR INJURED? WHAT IS THE END GOAL?

Both Illinois and Missouri state courts as well as the federal courts protect the right to a jury trial in most civil or personal injury cases. The purpose of making a claim or filing a lawsuit is to seek fair, just, and reasonable compensation for harm, damages, or injuries. The form of compensation is money. In limited circumstances, courts will allow an award of punitive damages, which are designed to deter specific conduct.

WHEN SHOULD I RETAIN AN ATTORNEY FOR A PERSONAL INJURY CASE OR WRONGFUL DEATH CASE?

In Illinois and Missouri, claims or cases must be filed before the applicable statute of limitations. The unfortunate consequence for failing to timely file a claim or lawsuit will result in an absolute bar or prevention of a recovery. It is extremely important to contact an Attorney as soon as possible following an injury or death. Personal Injury and Wrongful Death claims and cases take substantial time to review, research, investigate, and prepare from beginning to end.
