You have no doubt about what happened. You know who caused your recent truck accident on I-94, I-290, or another Chicago-area road, and you know it was the truck accident that caused your spinal cord injury. You might expect that the trucker, the trucking company, and the insurance company also know the truth. However, unless you fight for your fair and just recovery, you should not expect to make such a recovery.
How a Lawyer Can Help
A spinal cord injury can change your life forever. Currently there is no cure for this type of injury, and the impact on your life may be permanent. Yet, that is not a reason to give up on recovering fair damages. An attorney can help you recovery money for the following:
- Medical and rehabilitation expenses. Surgeries, medications, specialized medical equipment, physical therapy, and occupational therapy may be just some of the medical expenses you incur now and will continue to incur in the future.
- Out-of-pocket costs. You may need help with transportation, childcare, and maintaining your home.
- Lost income. You may not be able to work or earn the same income that you did prior to your spinal cord injury.
You only have one chance to make a recovery, and your time to do so is limited. Once the statute of limitations expires, you will no longer have the right to bring a lawsuit or to recover damages.
