What Types Of Personal Injury Compensation Are You Entitled To?
At The Law Offices of John S. Eliasik, one of the questions we are most frequently asked is “What’s the value of my case?” That’s a question that we can answer only after we carefully and thoroughly investigate the facts.
What we can do though is explain the types of compensation that you may be able to obtain. These include:
Medical bills – Our firm will seek full compensation for all types of medical costs, including emergency care, hospital bills, and surgical costs.
Medications – You may be entitled to reimbursement for prescription and over-the-counter medications.
Transportation to and from medical providers – Over time, this can amount to a large sum, particularly if you have to travel some distance for care with a medical specialist.
Cosmetic surgery and scar revision treatment – Certain types of injuries, such as lacerations suffered in a car accident or dog attack, may cause moderate to severe scarring. You may be entitled to compensation for these costs.
Psychological counseling – People who have suffered brain injuries in particular, can suffer mental health problems such as depression and anxiety, that require counseling or psychiatric care.
Lost income – If you are unable to work or your income is reduced due to your injuries, our firm will seek every penny you deserve. We can retain the services of an economist or vocational specialist when needed to accurately measure your lost income.
Pain and suffering – Insurance companies will also try to minimize damages for noneconomic losses. Our lawyers are skilled at documenting these types of losses.
Long-term care – If you have suffered life-changing injuries that require residence in a care facility or assisted living services at home, we will include these in your claim. We will adjust these costs upwards to account for anticipated future inflation.
Loss of a normal life – The permanent disabilities associated with an injury can interfere with your ability to enjoy activities that were part of your normal life before the accident. You are entitled to recover for the effect your injury has on your normal lifestyle.
The items described above apply to personal injury cases. Benefits and compensation in an Illinois work injury case are much different. An attorney at our firm can provide guidance and answers to your questions.
