We would highly recommend Mr. Lamber and his staff to anyone needing legal advice or assistance. They had a very high level of integrity and professionalism.

    How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

    The value of a case depends on a number of variables, such as who was at fault for the incident that resulted in the injury; the amount of insurance that is available; whether the plaintiff shared any of the blame; the cost of your medical bills; the potential extent of your future care needs; your doctor’s prognosis; and more.

    You must speak with a local personal injury attorney in the greater Chicago area for assistance with a more thorough investigation because every case is different.


    The party who is determined to be legally liable for the accident may be forced to compensate the plaintiff in a civil proceeding for bodily injury.

    The categories of damages that a plaintiff may seek in a personal injury lawsuit are listed in the Illinois Pattern Jury Instructions and include:

    • The extent and nature of the injuries
    • Loss of earnings
    • The expected time period of the injuries
    • The aggravation of a pre-existing condition or ailment
    • Disfigurement
    • Disability or loss of a normal life
    • Past and future pain and suffering
    • Past and future emotional distress
    • The expense of necessary past and future medical care
    • The value of past and future earnings, time, salaries lost, and profits
    • The cost of past and future caretaking expenses
    • The plaintiff’s age and any shortened life expectancy

    There is no automatic collection. Based on the plaintiff’s negligence, an award may be disallowed or reduced. Practically speaking, an award might not be collected if the at-fault party lacks the assets or insurance to pay the judgment. Below, each of these elements is covered.

    How Much Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

    The legal phrase for fault is liability. In most cases, the party that caused the accident will be held accountable for the victim’s injuries and will be required to pay compensation. However, many states, including Illinois, examine both the plaintiff’s and the defendant’s activities in the accident to determine which contributed to its cause. Our Chicago personal injury attorneys assist in identifying carelessness.

    In order to address the idea of contributory negligence, Illinois has adopted a comparative negligence approach. If the fact-finder (judge or jury) determines that the plaintiff was more than 50% responsible for the injuries, they will not be entitled to compensation under the law of comparative negligence. The plaintiff will be able to recover damages in proportion to the amount of blame placed on them, albeit, if their share of the guilt is less than 50%.

    An illustration of this would be if the plaintiff and the defendant got into a car accident and the plaintiff suffered losses totaling $100,000. The plaintiff would not be entitled to any of the $100,000 in damages if they were determined to have contributed 51% of the cause of the accident. The plaintiff would be able to obtain $70,000 from the defendant, however, if they were determined to have contributed 30% of the blame for the accident ($100,000 minus $30,000 due to the plaintiff’s 30% responsibility). Remember that the plaintiff could be able to hold the defendant accountable for the entire $100,000 in damages despite having no culpability in the collision.

    How Does Insurance Impact My Case?

    Liability insurance is crucial to protect a person in the event that they cause an accident and are held liable for the resulting damages. Furthermore, it is essential since it could affect the amount of compensation you can receive for your Chicago personal injury case. People can get in touch with an insurance provider and buy liability insurance for their boats, homes, enterprises, and other assets. Certain things must be insured, and the needed level of protection varies from state to state.

    According to Illinois law, all drivers must be covered by liability insurance. Drivers are required to carry a minimum of $25,000 per person for injury or death, $20,000 for property damage, and $50,000 for multiple person injury or death. All drivers operating vehicles in Illinois must also have uninsured/underinsured motorist protection. If a driver is involved in a collision with another vehicle and the at-fault driver does not have insurance or does not have enough insurance to pay the damages, uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage will protect the driver’s interests. In Illinois, drivers are required to carry $25,000 in uninsured/underinsured motorist protection.

    Should I Speak with the Insurance Company after an Accident?

    All parties that are involved in an accident have a duty to cooperate with their own insurance companies. The situation is more difficult when dealing with opposing insurance companies. Insurance companies often hire skilled insurance adjusters or lawyer who may ask questions in a way that may confuse you or make you answer in a way that will hurt your claim. It is best to speak with a Chicago personal injury lawyer before speaking with any insurance company representative so they may guide you through the negotiation process.

    If the insurance company for the opposite party reaches you personally and requests information, politely decline and provide them with your Chicago personal injury attorney’s contact information. You are not required to contact the opposite party’s insurance provider.

    What is the Statute of Limitations In Personal Injury Cases?

    Statutes of limitations are meant to prohibit people from filing claims after all the evidence has been destroyed, witnesses have passed away, or the passage of time has caused them to forget the specifics of the accident. They are applicable to both civil and criminal actions. Statutes of limitations are rules that provide a deadline by which a plaintiff must submit their claim or risk having their case dismissed. To determine the deadline or applicable statute of limitations in your case, you should speak with an attorney.

    In Illinois, a personal injury claim must be filed within two years after the accident date or it would be forever banned. To bring a personal injury claim, the plaintiff must wait two years after turning 18 if they are under the age of 18.

    Furthermore, within a year of the date the damage occurred, anyone planning to pursue a claim against the state of Illinois or any of its commissions must submit a notice of claim.

    Can Technology Make a Difference?

    The world and the profession of law have both altered as a result of technology. Our utilization of technology helps the Lamber Goodnow Chicago personal injury attorneys team to stand out from the competition. To ensure that opposing parties fully understand our position, we occasionally use iPads to create video settlement demands that include our clients, experts, documentation, and exhibits. These demands are then sent to the opposing firm’s offices in metal briefcases with Bose noise-canceling headphones.

    Additionally, when necessary, our team employs wearable devices like Fitbit, Apple Watch, and Google Glass to communicate with clients remotely, track heart rates during focus groups, and gain a deeper understanding of the difficulties clients face on a day-to-day basis following an accident.

    Additionally, we can use 3D printing technology to demonstrate to the opposing party and the insurance provider how a product should have been designed during the pre-litigation stage of cases involving products liability and premises liability, for example, encouraging settlement and sparing our clients from having to appear in court.

    Do I Have a Case?

    Our Chicago personal injury attorneys provide free case evaluations 24/7. Following an accident, there may be a lot of moving parts, which is why it is important to contact a greater Chicago personal injury lawyer. Many times the injured party is in no position to navigate the claim alone. They may be experiencing a variety of emotions, from pain and confusion to anger and sadness, which may make it difficult to reach informed decisions.

    Our Chicago personal injury lawyers offer free case reviews every single day. Because there may be many moving elements after an accident, it’s crucial to speak with a greater Chicago personal injury attorney. The injured person is frequently unable to handle the claim on their own. They can be going through a range of feelings, from hurt and confusion to rage and despair, which might make it challenging for them to make wise judgments.

    How Does a Contingent Fee Work?

    Clients receive assistance from the Lamber Goodnow Chicago personal injury attorneys team on a contingency fee basis. This means that we only receive compensation if and when we are successful in obtaining a satisfactory settlement or a verdict that allows you to recover financial losses. To put it another way, we won’t get paid unless you do. Being in an accident is stressful enough, so we never demand payment up front and only get paid when we secure compensation for you.
