Answering Your Questions About Personal Injury Claims

Personal injury and wrongful death claims often leave plaintiffs with more questions than answers. Mr. Montgomery wants to provide you with the information you need to know to help you through your case by answering some of the more common questions he gets here:

How soon do you have to file a wrongful death action?

Illinois law permits up to two years from the date of death to file a wrongful death claim against the liable party. While you may have a long time to file a claim, you should never wait. The longer you wait to begin pursuing justice, the more time it will take for you and your loved ones to receive the compensation you deserve.

How long does it take for a case to resolve?

Many factors impact the time it takes to resolve a wrongful death claim. Depending on how complicated negotiations can be, it can extend the time it takes to resolve things by weeks. If negotiations cannot result in a settlement that the plaintiff deserves, litigation may become necessary, increasing the time it takes to resolve a case by as much as several years. A skilled attorney can help you expedite your case without sacrificing the quality of the outcome.

What is a personal injury action worth?

Every personal injury claim is unique, so there is no universal amount that every plaintiff should receive. However, the goal of any good personal injury attorney is to provide their clients with compensation that accurately reflects the current and future costs of their injuries. Common factors that should be included in your compensation claim are lost income, property damage, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
