What If I am Injured in Chicago and I Live Elsewhere?
Chicago witnesses a fantastic amount of traffic. From tourists visiting the Sears Tower to temporary residents touring scenic Lakeshore Drive to international business travelers flying through O’Hare Airport, hundreds of thousands visitors pass through the Windy City every year. While most tourists, convention guests, and others enjoy their stay, a small but significant percentage get injured.
If you’ve been injured in a Chicago accident, but you don’t live in the city or even in Illinois, what actions should you take to get compensation for your injuries and damages? It’s expensive and time consuming to travel back to Chicago. But the injuries and secondary consequences of those injuries (such as lost wages, missed work, pain, medical bills, and psychological effects) have not gone away.
