Personal Injury Claims Must Be Filed Within Two Years Of The Injury

Do you have injuries because of someone else’s carelessness? The statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim in Illinois is two years. A personal injury claim may be filed to get compensation for your medical bills, physical therapy, lost wages, and pain and suffering. If you lost a loved one in an accident caused by someone else, you may get damages for final hospital expenses, funeral costs, future earnings, and pain and suffering for a wrongful death claim.

There are exceptions to the statute of limitations that make working with an experienced personal injury attorney essential. A seasoned lawyer will know the nuances that are vital to your case, such as extended time allowances for discovery of your injury, and the amount and type of evidence required for a successful claim. If you or a loved has injuries, call my firm, Parish & Castleman, today at 217-429-4283, to start on a case evaluation right away. I will take the time to guide you every step of the way if you have a valid claim.

Injury Claims Are Complex

Personal injuries can mean extended time off work, high medical bills and an uncertain future. Who will take care of your family if you are unable to provide for them? Has your loved one suffered injuries and is incapable of taking care of herself or himself? There are many aspects involved in a personal injury case.

At Parish & Castleman, my team provides compassionate help. I can guide you through the steps of a personal injury claim to seek optimal compensation for a wide range of accident injuries, including injuries related to:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck collisions
  • Farm equipment crashes
  • Motorcycle wrecks
  • Unsafe premises such as a crack in sidewalk, poorly maintained railings
  • Wrongful death

In addition to personal injury claims, I can help you file for a guardianship of an incapacitated adult or set up a special needs trust for your loved one.
