Most Common Personal Injury Claims In Illinois

An injury can take you out for the count. If it results from a workplace injury, you can get worker’s compensation. On the other hand, if someone else's negligence caused it, you can file a personal injury claim with help from Schaumburg personal injury lawyers.

Common Personal Injury Claims in Illinois

Some of the common personal injury claims you can make in Illinois include those involving:

Car accidents

As per the Illinois Department of Transportation, personal injury cases involving car accidents have increased over the past few years. If you have been injured because of a driver's negligence, you can face a hefty medical bill for treatments and surgeries. You can ensure you don't have to pay out of pocket with a personal injury claim.

Motorcycle accidents

Motorcycles are smaller and more vulnerable compared to larger vehicles. If you are involved in one, you can suffer from traumatic brain injuries, road rash, broken bones, and lacerations. Motorcyclists injured by a negligent driver can also demand compensation for their injuries via a personal injury claim.

Medical malpractice

Doctors are not perfect. Even the best ones can slip up during surgeries and cause injuries to the patients under their care. Some of the common ones include surgical injuries, birth injuries, failure to diagnose, etc. The fact is that if a doctor fails in their duty and hurts a patient, they can and should be held liable.

Slip and fall accidents

Slip and fall accidents can occur in both indoor and outdoor setups. Property owners are responsible for ensuring their buildings are safe for the people who work or live there. All staircases should have railings, wet floors should have warning signs on them, and paths should be clutter-free to prevent trips. If they fail to take the necessary precautions, they are automatically liable for injuries and can be sued for compensation.

Making a Successful Personal Injury Claim

To make a successful personal injury claim after you get into an accident, you need to prove that:

  • The liable party had a duty of care to prevent the accident.
  • Said party breached that duty.
  • You suffered injuries because of it.
  • You suffered damages because of those injuries.


With help from dedicated Schaumburg personal injury lawyers, you can prove all of these with appropriate evidence. For example, suppose you got injured in a car accident. In that case, your attorney will use pictures of the accident scene, videos from security cameras, police reports, forensic evidence, and even eye witness statements to prove driver negligence. That is how they can ensure you get the maximum compensation you deserve.
