How a Bloomington Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help

After an accident, you are more worried about recovering and paying the bills instead of paying a personal injury lawyer. However, our clients do not pay attorney’s fees unless we secure a favorable outcome in their case. Your initial case evaluation is free and without obligation. If you decide to retain us, we will review our contingency contract with you—and we do not get paid unless you get paid.

Once you retain us, we can:

  • Investigate your case. The sooner you retain us, the sooner we can start gathering evidence. If you wait too long, the evidence tends to disappear. Weather can erode evidence; the police and the defendant could inadvertently destroy evidence by leaving a vehicle out in the weather or by repairing a vehicle or a broken step—or the defendant could purposely destroy evidence.
  • Negotiate a fair and reasonable settlement agreement with the insurance company. Sometimes, more than one insurance company might share liability for your injuries.
  • Finally, we will be ready for trial if the insurance company does not come to a fair and reasonable settlement.

We fight hard for the compensation you deserve and do not let the insurance companies intimidate us into accepting a settlement that is less than you deserve.

Long-Term and Permanent Disabilities

badgeSome accidents cause injuries that are long-term or permanent. We want to ensure that you receive enough compensation to cover the life-long medical care you will need. Injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and crush injuries often cause permanent disabilities. Do not worry about the ability to put food on the table and pay medical expenses because of another person’s negligence.

Our Bloomington personal injury lawyers work with professionals to determine fair and reasonable settlements that cover medical expenses, loss of future earning capacity, and other damages for as long as doctors believe your injuries will last—even if doctors believe that your injuries are permanent.

Many accidents could cause severe or catastrophic injuries, including:

  • Car and truck accidents.
  • Motorcycle accidents.
  • Slip or trip and fall accidents.
  • Product liability.
  • Dog bites.
  • Premises liability.
  • Medical malpractice incidents.
  • Birth injuries.
  • Pedestrian accidents.
  • Nursing home neglect and abuse injuries.

Recovering Damages After an Accident

Illinois allows those injured in accidents to recover compensatory damages and punitive damages. The court orders a defendant to pay compensatory damages to make you financially whole again. However, the court orders a defendant to pay punitive damages as a punishment for the grossly negligent or intentional behavior that caused the accident.

Compensatory Damages

Two types of damages—economic and non-economic damages—make up compensatory damages. Economic damages have a monetary value, while non-economic damages do not.

Economic damages might include medical expenses, lost wages, loss of future earning capacity, replacement or repair of destroyed or damaged personal property, and death-related expenses.

Medical expenses include various forms of therapy, including occupational, cognitive, physical, and psychological therapies. Medical expenses also include ambulatory aids, prescriptions, prescribed over-the-counter medications, hand controls for your vehicle, and upgrades to your home, including but not limited to wheelchair ramps and widened doorways.

Non-economic damages include:

  • Pain and suffering, including emotional distress.
  • Loss of quality of life.
  • Loss of consortium if you can no longer enjoy a physical relationship with your spouse.
  • Loss of companionship.
  • Loss of use of a body part or bodily function.
  • Inconvenience if you have to hire someone to do the chores you usually do, such as house cleaning, grocery shopping, lawn maintenance, and home repair and maintenance.
  • Amputation of a digit or limb.
  • Disfigurement and/or excessive scarring.

Punitive Damages

Since the court only orders punitive damages if the defendant’s behavior was grossly negligent or intentional, you must prove to the court that the defendant’s behavior was, in fact, grossly negligent or intentional.

While punitive damages cause a case to take longer because of the extra steps you must take, it is worth the wait in some cases.

If the insurance company refuses a fair and reasonable settlement, our Bloomington and Normal personal injury lawyers can represent you in court to recover the compensation you deserve.

Our initial case evaluation is always free and without obligation. Once you retain us, we can use our resources to investigate your case, then discuss your medical issues and the finances you need with medical professionals to ensure we are on target with what you will need, especially for injuries that lead to long-term or permanent disabilities.

I found Adam after searching reviews for someone to represent me after an accident. I met with him and decided on his law firm. I mainly worked with Jeremy Lee. He always kept me up to date, answered all my questions. He worked hard for me and was very happy with the outcome. If you’re looking for a lawyer I would highly recommend Zayad Law firm.
