From car accidents to medical errors and even wrongful death, people are harmed by the negligence or carelessness of others every day. It can take months to recover from an accident and, for some, full recovery never happens. Physical injuries and impairments can last for the rest of your life. They can affect your ability to provide for yourself and your family and to enjoy life to the fullest extent. In addition to physical injuries, the mental stress and emotional trauma experienced after an accident can also be debilitating. Add to that the expensive medical bills that you cannot afford to pay and you are faced with an overwhelming and devastating situation.

Personal Injury Statistics
Accidents caused by negligence happen all the time across Illinois. Here are some statistics that demonstrate just how common they are:
- There were 25 fatal construction zone crashes in Illinois in 2019.
- 2.7 percent of full-time workers in Illinois suffered a workplace injury or illness and 158 died as a result of a fatal work injury in 2019.
- Illinois ranks sixth in the United States for total medical malpractice payments.
- Illinois ranks last in the United States for nursing home staffing levels, which is linked with the occurrence of nursing home abuse. Adult Protective Services received 20,800 reports of abuse, neglect, and financial exploitation in 2019-2020, and it is estimated that the actual number of cases is much higher.
These statistics are alarming and provide evidence that Illinois residents are severely harmed, and even killed, on a daily basis due to accidents that were most likely preventable. If someone else’s carelessness has caused harm to you or your family, you need an experienced Joliet personal injury lawyer who can pursue justice for you.

- Lost wages
- Loss of future income and income potential
- Repair or replacement costs for property that was damaged
- Pain and suffering
