In general the statute of limitations is 2 years from the date of injury.However, there are some claims that have a shorter (1 year) statute, so you are well advised to speak with a local personal injury attorney sooner rather than later to review your case and discuss the details to ensure that you do not run afoul of the statute of limitations (which is a complete defense from your case).See: http://www.alllaw.com/articles/nolo/personal-injury/laws-illinois.html
