Being injured in a Kenwood accident or incident involving someone else’s negligence can be devastating. In a split second, your life can change. Some injuries are so severe that you may never be the same again. Life-altering injuries can result in more than just physical pain — the emotional trauma associated with these types of injuries can be overwhelming.
Severe injuries affect more than just the victim. Your family and loved ones also are affected and can be emotionally distraught by watching you suffer. In the event you or a loved one are injured because of someone else’s negligence, you need to contact skilled Kenwood personal injury lawyers who can help.
At The Horwitz Law Group, our Kenwood personal injury lawyers routinely handle a number of different types of Illinois personal injury cases, including but not limited to the following:
No injury, no matter how minor, is pleasant to go through. If you suffered injuries and a financial loss due to someone else’s negligence or reckless behavior, you have a right to pursue compensation for your damages.
Every state has a time limit on how long you have to bring a claim for personal injuries sustained due to someone else’s fault. In Illinois, the average statute of limitations for personal injuries is two years. There are select scenarios in which an exception may apply, but in general, it is two years from the date of the accident. This means failure to file a lawsuit within the allotted time will typically bar you from recovery. If you are in the middle of negotiations with the insurance company and the statute of limitations passes without you filing a lawsuit, then the insurance company is technically under no legal obligation to offer you any money.
This is one of the reasons why you should hire Kenwood personal injury lawyers to represent you. We will handle negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company and work to ensure the statute of limitations is preserved in your case.
If you believe you have a valid personal injury claim in Kenwood, it is important to meet with a personal injury lawyer right away. The sooner you do, the sooner he or she can start building a strong case against the at-fault party. Preserving evidence in a personal injury case is imperative.
