How Do I Prove My Illinois Accident Claim?

You may feel entitled to compensation based on the circumstances surrounding your accident, but to legally demand a recovery for your damages your claim must meet the minimum legal requirements under Illinois personal injury law. Before taking on your case, your Homer Glen, IL accident lawyer from Burger Law will evaluate your case to make sure you have a qualified claim. Then, we will work ceaselessly to prove all elements of your claim and demand maximum compensation for your damages.

Using evidence as allowed by the Illinois rules of evidence, your Burger Law accident lawyer in Homer Glen, IL will prove the four necessary elements in 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 by default are expected to act in a way that prevents putting others in harm's way. In a slip and fall case, it is the owner or person in control of the property's duty to post warning and/or remove any dangers on the property to keep visitors safe.
  2. Breach of Duty of Care: Next your lawyer needs to be able to prove that the defendant was negligent and breached their duty of care to you. Negligence — both by way of omission and action — comes in many forms. Failing to reduce speed in poor weather conditions or choosing to speed are examples of negligence in traffic accident cases. 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 is where we connect the dots. Your injury lawyer has to show that the accident was caused by the defendant's negligence. Illinois law follows a model of modified comparative negligence, which means that when there are multiple parties who share fault for an accident, anyone can make a claim, minus your share of the fault, as long as you hold less than 50% of the fault. Conversely, this means that if the other driver was mostly at fault for the accident, you can still make a recovery even if their actions did not singularly cause the accident. For example, if the other party in a car accident is 80% responsible for the accident and you are 20% responsible, you can demand a settlement for 80% of your total losses from the other party.
  4. Damages: Finally, your accident lawyer has to demonstrate that you suffered lossses known as damages as a result of the accident caused by the negligence of the defendant. As an injury victim in an accident, you likely have suffered a laundry list of damages, both economic and non-economic, from concrete expenses like treatment costs and lost wages as well as abstract costs like mental pain and anguish and disability.

If you have been injured in an accident because someone else was negligent and did not care about your safety, speak to the Homer Glen area Illinois accident lawyer team of Burger Law today at (314) 500-HURT. We provide a free evaluation of your case and when you hire a Burger Law accident lawyer in Homer Glen, IL, we never stop fighting until we prove your claim and get you a complete financial recovery.

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.

Truck accidents also present higher risk for those on the Homer Glen, IL roads. Trucks weigh 20-30 pounds heavier than passenger vehicles and can take 20-40 percent longer to stop.

They are often part of multi-vehicle accidents which can make investigating them complicated. Your Homer Glen-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.

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 Homer Glen, IL or Illinois governmental entity. For example, if your child was hurt in a school bus accident, your Illinois accident lawyer in Homer Glen 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.
