Springfield, IL Personal Injury Lawyer

It only takes mere seconds for an accident to upend your life completely. When someone else is responsible for your injuries and losses, you deserve compensation to manage those problems and get your life back in order at a reasonable pace.

If you or someone you love has been involved in an accident, you could be dealing with medical bills, lost wages, mental anguish, and more. If negligence played a role in your accident, you might have grounds for an injury claim. A Springfield, IL personal injury lawyer from Thomas Law Offices can help.

Our attorneys represent victims in and around Springfield, as well as all over Illinois. So no matter where your accident happened or what type of incident you were involved in, we’re prepared to guide you through the legal process and fight on your behalf for full monetary recovery.

Common Lawsuits in Springfield

While any accident can result in injuries, certain claims are more common than others regarding civil law. At Thomas Law Offices, we’ve represented clients in the following areas:

  • Car Accidents
  • Truck Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Nursing Home Abuse
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Birth Injuries
  • Wrongful Death
  • Brain Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Sexual Assault
  • Construction Accidents
  • Premises Liability
  • Slip and Falls
  • Product Liability
  • Social Security Disability

No matter the extent of your injuries or the type of accident or incident you were in, our lawyers are here to get to the bottom of what happened to you. Once they grasp what you’ve been through and have the evidence to prove you were not at fault, they can start valuing your claim.

Determining the Value of a Personal Injury Claim

Every personal injury claim is unique. This means that it’s unlikely for any two claims to be valued at the same amount. It’s possible, however, that your claim could be valued in a similar manner to a case where the victim was in a similar situation.

Dealing with insurance adjusters can be challenging. If possible, let your attorney handle those conversations. You don’t want anything to jeopardize your compensation.

When your lawyer does reach out to fight on your behalf for monetary recovery, they will look to recover economic and noneconomic losses. We’ll discuss the differences between the two categories below.

Economic Losses

Economic losses are, in most instances, calculable. To total up what you’re owed, our lawyers will collect hospital bills, lost wages statements, medical service bills, and ore to calculate the actual dollar amount you’ve lost.

Depending on the situation, we may also be able to take your future medical bills and lost income into consideration. It’s dependent on the severity of your injuries and how long they will take to heal, in addition to what care your doctor says you will need in the future.

Noneconomic Losses

Noneconomic losses are slightly more challenging to calculate, as they’re based on factors that aren’t numerical in any real sense. Instead, noneconomic losses for most personal injury claims are based on pain and suffering.

The more severe your injuries are and the worse you’ve been impacted, especially long term, you have the hold the negligent party accountable for your pain and suffering.

In addition to taking your pain and suffering into consideration, our lawyers will also look at what other claims have resolved in the past. This will give us a better idea of what’s been deemed reasonable in similar situations.

Don't wait. We're ready to fight.
