Another driver’s negligence has caused you—or your loved one—to suffer a life-changing brain injury. You can’t go back and undo the harm that has been done, but you can take charge of your recovery.
Three Things You Need to Know
As you move forward, it is important to know that:
- You may need medical treatment or assistance for the rest of your life.
- You may not be able to work at all, or you may not be able to work the same job that you did prior to the accident.
- You have to take action in order to protect your recovery. Your recovery will not be automatic, but instead depends on you pursuing a claim.
You also need to know that recovery is possible.
Illinois Law Allows You to Recover Damages
If another driver’s negligence caused your motorcycle crash and resulting brain injury, then you may be able to recover damages pursuant to Illinois law. These damages may include compensation for your past, current, and future:
- Medical expenses.
- Lost income.
- Out-of-pocket costs.
- Pain and suffering.
- Other damages.
By taking action to protect your legal rights, you may be able to afford the medical treatment you need, and you may be able to maintain your standard of living even if you can’t work.
Additionally, you need to know that you don’t have to do everything alone. You have the right to get help from doctors, therapists, friends, relatives, and attorneys who can each play an important role in your immediate and long term recovery. Together, you can assemble a team that will help you during this difficult time and we hope for many years to come.
