Property Damage Vs. Personal Injury Claims in Chicago
The liability surrounding car accidents is usually a complicated affair due to the different factors that come into play such as the people who sustained injuries, who was at fault, whether all parties has sufficient, or if any insurance at the time of the accident, and so on. That being said, personal injury claims are a bit different from property damage claims for reasons we’ll take a look at shortly. However, it is important to note that most people who are involved in accidents instinctively first think about the damage their car has sustained, and how they will fix or repair it given the importance of a vehicle in our state, and the country at large when it comes to getting to work in a timely manner as well as traversing large distances in areas or counties where public transportation is not an option.

What is the Compensation for Property Damage Claims in Chicago Car Accidents?
These types of claims are very straightforward and cover concerns such as the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle if it’s been totaled, the cost of replacing any damaged personal items at the scene of the accident, as well as the damage caused by the accident such as a car ramming into the side of a convenience store, knocking out the wall and causing tens of thousands in damage. It is easy to come up with an approximation of the cost of replacing or repairing these items or properties because all one has to do is provide receipts showing the value of the items, factoring in wear and tear or depreciation if the situation calls for it.
You Get Much More With Chicago Personal Injury Claims
The court system places a high premium on personal injury claim because of the immediate and future consequences surrounding bodily injury. Injuries such as traumatic brain injury may incapacitate you and make it impossible to resume working, rendering you partially disabled. Broken legs can mean months of recuperation which leads to tens of thousands in lost wages, and burns can affect one’s self esteem, causing them immense pain and suffering, necessitating therapy for an extended amount of time.
The Insurance Company Wants Me To Sign Papers – Should I?
Personal injury claims are heavily contested by insurance companies because they know they may be forced to shell out a large payout, something that’s not in their best interest. They will therefore pull out all the stops to get you to accept a low offer. They may send you papers to sign, informing you that you are legally required to do so, or they may feign concern and adopt a compassionate stance, all in an effort to catch you unawares, making a statement that may be construed to mean that you did not suffer substantial injuries.
