You could be entitled to significant Damages

No matter what the nature and extent of your injuries, if someone has caused you harm emotionally, financially, and physically, we believe they should pay for your injuries as well as your pain and suffering. In other words, they should have to compensate you for the damages they caused. Damages in a personal injury lawsuit could be significant in that they are based on the nature and extent of your injuries along with the emotional, financial, and mental suffering your family has endured since you got injured.

Once your Makarone Law Firm personal injury attorney in Northbrook has proven that the defendant was to blame, the value of your case, or the damages you’re entitled to would be spelled out in the courtroom. Based on the seriousness of your accident and the extent of your injuries, you could be entitled to the following damages:

  • Attendant/in-home care
  • Emotional distress / mental anguish
  • Home maintenance and housekeeping costs
  • Hospital, medical, and prescription expenses
  • Loss of future earnings capacity
  • Lost income
  • Pain and suffering

When you or a loved one has suffered a permanently disabling or catastrophic injury, there may be other damages you can sue for such as accommodation adjustments to your home, occupational and rehabilitative therapy, and so on. In an accident and injury lawsuit, a Makarone Law Firm personal injury lawyer can sue the defendant and their insurer for three types of damages based on the circumstances and details of the case. These include:

   Compensatory (economic) damages – As the most concrete and identifiable type of damages, compensatory damages, or economic damages as they are often referred to, are intended to make the injury victim financially whole again by recovering their losses.
   General (non-economic) damages  – Our personal injury lawyers in Northbrook will sue for these in conjunction with compensatory damages (see above) for the less specific, less tangible types of damages in your case. These include emotional distress, mental anguish, and pain and suffering.
  Punitive damages – These damages, though rare, are awarded to an injury victim (or plaintiff) by the at-fault party (or defendant) in order to punish the at-fault party for their intentional behavior or their gross negligence in their case. These are the most difficult of damages to sue for as a very heavy burden of proof rests on the plaintiff’s shoulders.
