What Must I Prove in My Illinois Accident Claim?

You may feel entitled to compensation based on the circumstances surrounding your accident, but in order to make a financial recovery for your damages your claim must meet the minimum legal requirements under Illinois tort law. Before we sign with you as a client, your Algonquin, IL accident lawyer from Burger Law will assess your case to make sure you have a qualified claim. After that, we will work ceaselessly to build your case and demand maximum compensation for your damages.

Following the Illinois rules of evidence to document your argument, your Algonquin, IL Burger Law accident lawyer will prove the four requirements of your Illinois personal injury case.

  1. Duty of Care: We must establish that there was a relationship between you and the defendant such that the defendant owed you a duty of care. This is implied in auto accident claims, as all motorists owe each other a duty to drive with care to avoid putting others in danger. In a slip and fall case, it is the owner or person in control of the property's duty to be aware of safety hazards within a reasonable amount of time, and either provide warning or address/remove the danger to keep visitors safe.
  2. Negligence: Next your lawyer must prove that the defendant voilated their duty of care to you. There are many examples of negligence, which can take the form of both actions and failures to act. Failing to yield the right of way or choosing to behave recklessly are examples of auto accident negligence. In the case of a dangerous property, failing to rope off or cover a hole in the sidewalk could be a breach of duty of care.
  3. Causation: This connects the dots. Your injury lawyer must attribute the cause of the accident to the defendant's behavior. Illinois law follows a model of modified comparative negligence, meaning that when there are multiple parties who share fault for an accident, you can make a claim, minimized by your amount of fault, for anyone who is less than 50% at fault. So in proving causation, you can receive a settlement and make the other driver pay even if their actions did not singularly cause the accident. If the other driver in a car accident is 80% at-fault for the accident and you are 20% responsible, your lawyer will make sure that you receive payment for 80% of your total losses from the other party.
  4. Damages: Finally, your accident lawyer has to prove that you suffered lossses known as damages as a result of the accident the defendant caused. As the victim in an accident, you likely have faced a laundry list of damages, both economic and non-economic, from concrete expenses like treatment bills and loss of income as well as abstract losses like pain and suffering and disability.

If you were hurt in an accident because someone else was neglected their duty to act safely, call an accident lawyer from Burger Law near Algonquin today at (314) 500-HURT. We provide a free evaluation of your case and your Burger Law Algonquin, IL accident lawyer will not rest until we win your claim and bring you the recovery you deserve.

Algonquin, Illinois Auto Accident Lawyer

The Bureau of Justice Statistics found that over half of personal injury cases were motor vehicle claims. The Illinois Vehicle Code (625 ILCS 5/) stipulates that "every driver of a vehicle shall exercise due care" to others on the Algonquin and Illinois roadways. If you are injured because of a driver's negligent or reckless actions, you are owed damages. Every Burger Law Algonquin-based Illinois accident lawyer has seen every type of auto accident and knows how to get you a full financial recovery.

Car Accident Lawyer in Algonquin, IL

Crashes between passenger vehicles - such as cars, minivans, pick-up trucks and SUVs - are by far the most common type of motor vehicle accident. In 2019, passenger vehicle occupants accounted for 62 percent of all deaths in fatal crashes.

Some of the most common types of car accidents our accident lawyers work with in Algonquin, IL are:

Whatever the specific circumstances and causes of your car accident injuries, we know how car accident claims work. Our accident lawyer team inAlgonquin, IL reviews every piece of evidence, including witness testimony, surveillance footage and photographs from the accident scene. Once we determine who is liable for your injuries, we will aggressively and tenaciously work to get you justice and make sure they are held accountable.

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Algonquin, IL

Motorcycle drivers are at an especially high-risk for injury in an accident due to motorcycles' lack of stability and protection. Despite only accounting for 0.6 percent of miles driven by all vehicles, they accounted for 14% of all fatalities and 3% of injuries in motor vehicle crashes. While certain safety measures like wearing a helmet can substantially reduce the risk of injury or death, you cannot help it when other Algonquin and Illinois drivers break the rules. If a reckless or negligent driver caused you injury, call the Algonquin, IL accident lawyers of Burger Law today. We have seen firsthand the devastation that a motorcycle accident can have on Algonquin, IL individuals and families, and know exactly how to get you maximum compensation for all of your damages.

Truck Accident Lawyer in Algonquin, IL

Truck accidents also present higher risk for those on the Algonquin, IL roads. Trucks weigh 20-30 pounds heavier than passenger vehicles and can take 20-40 percent longer to stop. That means they exert a much higher amount of force in collisions and truck drivers have much less time to react. There may be nothing more dangerous on the Algonquin, IL roads than an 18-wheeler that is unfit to be driven or a truck driver who is not currently fit to drive. They are often part of multi-vehicle accidents which can make investigating them complicated. Your Algonquin-based Illinois accident lawyer may find that several parties are liable, including:

  • The truck driver or another driver for driver error, such as distracted driving or not accounting for weather conditions.
  • The trucking company for not properly maintaining the truck, not performing inspections, negligent hiring practices or forcing their drivers to drive longer than the hours of service regulations allow.
  • The manufacturer for not safely designing the truck or not recalling a defective part.
  • The shipping company for improperly loading cargo.

Whatever the cause of your truck accident, you can be sure Burger Law's Illinois accident lawyer team in Algonquin has seen it before. We will make sure each and every liable party takes responsibility for all of your damages to secure you a full financial recovery.

Bus Accident Lawyer in Algonquin, IL

While rare, bus accidents are similar to truck accidents in that they can cause a lot of damage and there are special rules that go with driving them. Like truck accidents, you can sue the driver of the bus, the bus company, the manufacturer or, in some cases a Algonquin, IL or Illinois governmental entity. For example, if your child was hurt in a school bus accident, your Illinois accident lawyer in Algonquin may be able to help you make a claim against a public school district if the crash was caused by a snowstorm and they should have canceled school.
