New Year New Injury Claim: What you need to know now!

Published on January 12th, 2021 by The Illinois Hammer Injury Law Firm

New Year New Injury Claim

3…2…1…Happy New Year!

The New Year has rolled in, and resolutions are in full swing. The last thing on your mind is a personal injury. But, as you return to your day-to-day schedule after the holidays, a greater risk of personal injury lies ahead. After sustaining an injury it’s imperative to file you personal injury claim expediently.

What is a Personal Injury?

A personal injury is when one suffers an injury because of someone else’s negligence. Personal injuries can occur from car accidents, trucks accidents, slips and falls, dog bites, and more. Filing a new injury claim for a personal injury may result in reimbursement for damages caused by an accident, plus pain and suffering.

Compensation can be awarded to victims for costs including medical expenses and loss of wages. An injury victim can also receive compensation for the ways the injury has altered their life, such as loss of society and companionship.

Should I Have an Attorney?

One of the most overlooked factors of a successful case is properly filing the new injury claim and sending demands. If paperwork and forms are improperly documented there is potential for your new injury claim to be dismissed. Furthermore, finding the information online for the legal requirements of filing a personal injury case can be tricky.

Also, failing to provide proper proof can easily dismantle your case. An attorney at The Illinois Hammer Injury Law Firm can investigate the viability of your case, and help you work towards the retribution you deserve.

Statute of Limitations for a New Injury Claim

As you look to pursue a personal injury claim in the new year, it is valuable to consider the law of the “statute of limitations.” This law puts a strict limit on how long you can wait to file a claim. In other words, if you fail to file your claim before the deadline passes, you may lose your right to seek legal recourse over the accident. Make sure that you seek legal counsel as soon as possible with The Illinois Hammer Injury Law Firm before time runs out. Our team can help assess your case and advise on next steps.
