Common Car Accident Injuries

No two car crashes are exactly alike. In some cases, injuries are relatively minor, thankfully nothing more than a bump or bruise. However, sadly, in many other cases, car accident injuries are completely debilitating. Our team has been handling car accident claims in the Chicago metro area for more than three decades. In that time, we have seen many different types of injuries, including: 

  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Severe damage to joints, including knees, shoulders, and hips
  • Whiplash and other types of tissue damage
  • Torn muscle and torn ligaments
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord damage, including paralysis
  • Internal organ damage and internal bleeding
  • Severe head injuries, including concussions

Car Accident Liability: Comparative Negligence

In order to hold someone else responsible for your car accident injuries, you will need to be able to establish that they were ‘at fault’ for the incident. In Illinois, fault is based on the state’s negligence standard. Negligence occurs when one fails to take proper safety precautions in the course of an activity. For example, running a red light is a clear example of negligence. 

Of course, often, negligence is difficult to establish. Doing so requires a comprehensive accident investigation. Additionally, Illinois is a comparative negligence jurisdiction. This means that multiple parties can be held responsible for the same crash. When this happens, the at-fault parties will split liability in direct proportion to their share of the fault. 

Compensation Available for Victims

Once you establish liability, your case will move on to the issue of damages. In Illinois, injured victims are entitled to be made ‘whole.’ Put another way, this means that victims have a right to obtain financial compensation that makes up for the full value of their losses. Both monetary losses and intangible losses can potentially qualify for compensation. Our attorneys may be able to help you recover for: 

  • Emergency medical bills;
  • Hospital bills;
  • Required physical therapy; 
  • Lost wages;
  • Long-term disability;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Disfigurement; and
  • Loss of lifestyle enjoyment.
