Champaign-Urbana Personal Injury FAQs by Koester & Bradley
What is a personal injury? Personal injury is an injury caused by the careless or intentional act of another or by a defective product. This is also referred to as negligence. A party who is found to be legally responsible for the injury to another may be required to pay compensatory damages to the victim. Punitive damages may also be awarded to the injured party in some cases.
Do I have a personal injury case? In order to have a personal injury case, you will need to show that you have been injured either physically or emotionally and that this injury was caused by the fault of another under an intentional misconduct, a strict liability or a negligence theory.
How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit? The statute of limitations is dependent upon the type of personal injury case. The skilled attorneys of Koester & Bradley, LLP are well-versed in Illinois law and would be happy to help you determine if your case meets the statutory timeframe.
How much will it cost to hire an attorney? The initial consultation at Koester & Bradley, LLP is always free. If retained as your attorneys, we work on a contingent fee basis which means if we do not recover for you then you do not pay us.
