Chicago Injury Lawyer: Common Types of Injury Cases

Injuries happen far too often in the United States. According to the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an average of almost 38 million people visit an emergency room and more than 57 million visit a doctor’s office each year due to injury. Your Chicago injury lawyer has seen every possible type of injury and knows exactly what to do to protect you and your future and get you and your family maximum compensation.

Some of the common cases we see where a conversation with a Chicago injury lawyer is necessary are:

Car, Truck, Bus and Motorcycle Accidents

Injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents in Chicago and Illinois are the most common seen by Burger Law injury lawyers. In fact, more than 4.5 million injuries occurred as the result of reported motor vehicle accidents in 2019, at a cost of more than $463 billion. And those are only from the reported accidents. Call us immediately with any questions at 312-500-HURT. Common types of negligence in Illinois motor vehicle crashes are:

Truck accidents are especially dangerous because of the sheer size and force of the vehicles, and motorcycle accidents carry increased risk of injury or death because the drivers are more exposed than in other vehicles.

Whatever the cause of your auto accident, and whether your injuries required a trip to a Chicago or an Illinois emergency room, your devoted injury lawyer at Burger Law is here to get you the entire financial recovery you are owed.

Slip and Falls

Falling is the leading cause of emergency room visits in the U.S., making up around 8 millions visits a year. Slip and falls account for 1 million, or 12 percent of those visits. They are also the leading cause of workers' compensation cases and account for the most days missed from work.

Some potential causes of slip and fall injuries requiring a Chicago injury lawyer are:

  • Spills
  • A recently mopped floor
  • Broken concrete on a walkway
  • Broken stairs
  • Broken decks and balconies
  • Potholes
  • Sudden changes in surface level

  • Absence of safety rails

Medical Malpractice

Some of the most common cases of medical malpractice your Burger Law Chicago injury lawyer sees are:

Wrongful Death

The Illinois wrongful death statute, 740 ILCS 180/2, defines the damages you can seek in a wrongful death case as:

Chicago Injury Lawyer: Types of Compensation

Your Chicago injury lawyer works aggressively and is committed to fighting for maximum compensation. It is not enough to simply win a case; your livelihood, family and future are of the utmost importance. Your Chicago injury lawyer will seek the following compensatory damages:

Economic Damages

These damages include any financial hardships your Chicago injury lawyer deems applicable as a direct result of the accident:

  • Medical Bills/Cost of Treatment
  • These bills can include anything from ambulance and emergency room costs, surgical costs, doctor appointment costs or the cost of any special equipment, to the cost of any medication you might need.

  • Lost wages
  • If your injuries keep you from returning to work or prevent you from returning to your previous schedule of work, your Chicago injury lawyer will demand payment based on your pay stubs and/or W2s.

  • Lost Earning Capacity
  • This refers to future missed income that you will no longer be able to earn. Lost earning capacity is complicated, but if your injuries are severe and prevent you from future work, your Chicago injury lawyer willbe able to prove this.

Noneconomic Damages

These damages can include anything that lowers your quality of life and contributes to a loss of enjoyment, including:

  • Permanent or Temporary Disability
  • This includes partial or full paralysis, impaired cognitive function or an inability to lift heavy objects.

  • Pain and Suffering
  • The physical pain and emotional distress caused by an injury. A judge or jury asks how your lifestyle, capacity for happiness or your relationships at work or home were affected by the injury.

In some rare circumstances, your Chicago injury lawyer might seek punitive damages. These damages, according to 735 ILCS 5/2-1115.05, are only applicable if your Chicago injury lawyer can prove, by clear and convincing evidence, that the defendant’s conduct was with “evil motive or with a reckless and outrageous indifference to a highly unreasonable risk of harm and with a conscious indifference to the rights and safety of others.” Punitive damages “shall not exceed 3 times the amount awarded for the economic damages on which such claim is based.” While they are rare, punitive damages intend to punish the defendant and warn against similar neglect and recklessness in the future.

Your Chicago injury lawyer has seen firsthand the unfortunate impact an injury can have on Chicago and Illinois residents and their families. Your Burger Law injury lawyer will explain to you all of your legal options and demand that you get the full compensation the law says you are entitled to.
