Personal injury law addresses the rights of an individual who has suffered injuries, damages or death due to the negligence and actions of someone else. In Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois, the rights of the injured victim are recognized to permit recovery of damages and compensation from the party who caused the injury to pay for your losses as a result of negligence. Injuries and damages permitted to be paid to you for your injuries include medical expenses, loss of income, both past and future, and pain and suffering. Pain and suffering can include a wide variety of injuries and losses that you suffer from someone else’s negligence. There is the obvious harm to you in the form of pain. But suffering can occur in other ways. Permanent total or partial loss of use of your arms, legs, or even your whole body. Some injury victims suffer scarring and disfigurement and others will experience the effects of injuries for the rest of their lives. How an injury affects your life differs from one person to another. But if you’ve been injured and your life will never be the same, you’re entitled to compensation for all the ways in which your life has been changed and impacted.
