Sometimes, victims may be able to reach an out-of-court settlement with the at-fault party before filing a lawsuit. However, filing a lawsuit may be the only way they can pursue compensation for their damages. Therefore, state law permits individuals to sue the at-fault party, or their insurance company, for fair compensation. En Español.
How Much Compensation Could a Victim Receive?
Personal injury victims often suffer significant financial losses due to their injuries. Medical bills, lost income, and other expenses can become overwhelming burdens, and many seek compensation in court for these costs. Every personal injury case is different, so there is no set amount of compensation someone could receive.
After filing a lawsuit, an Oak Lawn personal injury lawyer could calculate the damages and present that figure in court as a basis for their potential financial award.
The judge or jury in the case will decide whether someone should receive any compensation, and if so, the amount. Sometimes, the at-fault party and victim can settle out of court, and mutually agree upon a compensation figure.
Regardless of whether the case reaches court or the parties settle out of court; the damages a victim sustains is a main factor in determining how much compensation could be received. We’ve served the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana area since 1999.
