What Is a Personal Injury?

Simply put, a personal injury is a civil wrong for which the courts may award money damages to the victim. In other words, if you are injured through the negligent or intentional actions of another party, you may be entitled to recover financial compensation for your losses. Damages that are often awarded in personal injury lawsuits include:

  • Lost wages and future earning capacity
  • Medical expenses (past and future costs for treatments, medications, and equipment)
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

How Do Personal Injuries Happen?

Personal injuries and the lawsuits that follow are often the result of motor vehicle accidents, but they can be caused by dangerous property conditions, defective products, and even intentional acts.

Oftentimes, various factors contribute to a personal injury accident and numerous parties can be held liable. This scenario is common in car and truck crashes when multiple drivers are involved. If more than one party causes your pain, each can be held liable for their role in the accident.

In many cases, third-party personal injury lawsuits and workers’ compensation cases go hand in hand. For instance, if your work-related injuries were caused by malfunctioning equipment, you may be able to recover damages through a workers’ compensation claim and a personal injury claim simultaneously.

There’ No Limit to the Nature of Injuries Victims Can Sustain

Personal injuries may be physical or psychological. They can take months, or even years to heal. In some cases, victims never fully recover. Some people even lose their lives. Some of the most common types of personal injuries in Illinois include:

  • Back and neck injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Amputations
  • Severe burns
  • Deep tissue injuries
  • Cuts and puncture wounds

Sometimes, people are so severely injured that they become permanently disbaled and unable to work. These victims may also be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits to help them make ends meet.

If you were injured in Illinois, our injury lawyers will guide you through the legal system and help you obtain the money you need to restore your future through personal injury lawsuits, workers’ compensation claims, and SSDI benefits.

What Our Injury Lawyers Won’t Do

At Martay Law Office, we don’t believe in boasting about our law firm or making empty promises. We believe in delivering results.

Here’s is what our attorneys won’t do.

  • We won’t ask for money upfront. When you hire our team, we’ll shoulder the financial burden of investigating your case and pursuing damages through negotiation or litigation.
  • We won’t leave you hanging. When you have questions or concerns about your case, our team will promptly provide you with answers. If we’re not immediately available to speak with you, we’ll return your messages or calls within 24 hours.
  • We won’t mislead you. When you speak with our lawyers, you’ll get honest, straightforward answers. We’ll never make promises we can’t keep about the amount of money you’ll receive or the outcome of your case. Rather than mislead our clients, we would prefer to surpass your expectations.
  • We won’t pressure you to make decisions that are not in your best interest. The wellbeing of our clients remains our priority for the duration of your case. We’ll never try to talk you into accepting a fast settlement unless we believe doing so is the right choice for you.
