How Damages Work in Personal Injury Law

Last updated 6 years ago

In personal injury lawsuits, plaintiffs seek damages to compensate for negligence or bad behavior on the part of the defendant that has caused injury. To learn more about the types of damages that are potentially available, watch this informative video.

Though damages are often sought for medical bills and lost wages, these aren’t the only factors for which a plaintiff can receive compensation. For example, pain and suffering or mental anguish may also deserve compensation. In some cases, punitive damages meant to discourage a defendant from acting in the same way in the future are also warranted.

If you feel you deserve compensation for an injury, McCready, Garcia & Leet, P.C. may be able to help you gain the financial damages you deserve. To schedule a consultation to evaluate your case, call our office in Chicago at (773) 779-9885.
