What Damages Am I Entitled To After A Car Accident?

Every case is unique. The type and amount of damages you pursue will depend on many factors, including the severity of the accident, the extent of damages and the insurance policies of the parties involved. With so many variables affecting your ultimate award, it is important that your attorney explore every possible source of compensation.

There are many kinds of damages under Illinois law, including:

  • Medical expenses — These expenses may include doctor visits, ambulance transportation, rehabilitation and therapy, medical equipment and other costs associated with medical treatment after the accident.
  • Property damage — If your car, home or other property has been damaged in the accident, you may be awarded compensation to repair or replace it.
  • Pain and suffering — No amount of money can take away the pain and trauma of an accident, but it can grant you peace of mind that you and your loved ones will be taken care of financially.
  • Lost wages — If your injury or subsequent medical appointments cause you to miss work, it may be possible to recover the wages you have lost.
