Car Accident Liability

If your legal counsel can establish negligence on the part of another driver, your claim has a better chance for success. After the attorney has obtained enough evidence to show a wrong, he or she will start the process of seeking compensation from the other driver or their insurance company.

Common Illinois Car Accident Injuries 

  • Spine and Back damage

  • TBI

  • Burns

  • Amputations

  • Fractured and broken bones

  • Internal bleeding

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

  • Damage to organ

  • Death

Illinois Negligence Laws and Car Accidents

It can come as a surprise to learn that if you contributed to the cause of the wreck you can still file a claim for an auto accident. While filing claims, Illinois and Chicago's residents are subject to a modified Comparative Negligence Law. Essentially, this means that if you are partly at fault, you will seek compensation but the reward would be limited by the percentage of the fault.

You should bear in mind that Illinois has a liability rate of 49 percent. When you surpass that percentage of liability, you will no longer be able to make your claim and you yourself may also be the target of a claim. 

Dealing with the Insurance Companies

It is difficult to handle an insurance company without a lawyer. The insurance company is likely to make every effort to downplay your injuries and damage to property to reduce the amount of compensation you owe.

A simple solution is to tell the insurance company that you've hired an attorney. Tell the insurers to contact your attorney, who would know just what to do to make sure that after your car accident you are not the victim of shady insurance schemes.

If you are injured in a car accident, you need to be compensated for your medical bills, your time off from work, your pain and suffering, and your disability is all part of your personal injury case.
