Types of Compensation Under Illinois Law
and accidents cause pain and losses for victims, whether it’s financial,
physical or emotional. Fortunately, Illinois law allows victims to receive
compensation for losses such as:
- Lost wages

and temporary scarring and/or disability
- Pain and
non-monetary losses, such as emotional distress
Illinois’ statute of limitations gives victims two years from the date of the injury to file a claim (735 Illinois Compiled Statutes section 5/13-202). If you don’t file within this time period, your case will be dismissed and you might lose your right to compensation. In some cases, if a government was involved, your time limit may be as short as a year.
