Illinois law protects not only a person’s property, but also their body, mind, and emotional state. Sometimes accidents happen, but oftentimes they occur because of someone else’s actions or negligence. If you have been injured or hurt due to someone else’s carelessness or negligence, the experienced trial attorneys at Appelman & Associates will help you fight for your rights.
No Time to Waste
Similar to Slip and fall injuries, you need to act swiftly if someone is at fault for your injury. The statute of limitations puts time restraints on how much time can pass between your injury and legal action. If you fail to seek medical aid or legal assistance in the immediate aftermath of your injury, you could miss out on the benefits you’re entitled to receive.
Another reason why it’s important to act quickly after an injury is because you’ll want to document the details of the case while they are fresh in your mind. If possible, take photographs of your injury and any other pieces of evidence that could be used to strengthen your case. Write down your account of the accident as soon as you can to ensure you remember everything exactly as it occurred; better yet, speak to an attorney so they can record all the relevant information and advise what you should do next.
Types of Injuries
There are thousands of ways a person can suffer an injury, but some types of injuries are more common than others. Some of the most common injuries we see at Appelman & Associates include:
