Illinois is a pure tort state, meaning that in order to collect monetary damages for your automobile accident, you must prove that the other driver was liable for causing your injuries. If you can establish liability, you are entitled to recover for your losses from the at-fault driver’s insurer, up to the policy limits of that driver’s insurance plan. In some cases, such as when your own insurance plan includes an underinsured or uninsured policy, you may also be entitled to collect damages from your own insurer.

An injured person may seek monetary damages for present and future injuries arising from the impact of the accident. While the specific amounts of damages may vary from person to person, damages are usually thought to consist of economic and non-economic damages—both for situations incurred shortly following the incident as well as those expenses that are likely to be incurred in the future.

Examples of economic damages may include anything that is tangibly related to a loss, including charges for: ambulance, emergency room treatment or appointments with specialized physicians (e.g., orthopedists, neurologists, radiologists, neurosurgeons, etc.), physical therapy, hospital, surgery, lost income, handicapped accommodations to home and vehicles, property damage, attorney fees and car rental expenses.

An injured person may also recover compensation for the intangible losses or non-economic damages related to an auto accident including: punitive damages, pain and suffering, disfigurement, emotional distress, loss of normal life and loss of society (in the case of a fatality).
