How Do I Prove My Illinois Accident Claim?

You may feel like you deserve to be compensated when you have been in any accident, but in order to make a financial recovery for your damages your claim must meet the minimum legal requirements under Illinois civil law. Before we sign with you as a client, your Huntley, IL accident lawyer from Burger Law will assess your case to make sure you have a legitimate claim. After that, we will work tirelessly to prove all elements of your claim and negotiate an excellent settlement.

Following the Illinois rules of evidence to document your argument, your Huntley, IL Burger Law accident lawyer will prove the four necessary elements in your Illinois personal injury case.

  1. Duty of Care: There was a relationship through which 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 reasonable care to avoid putting others in danger. In a slip and fall case, the owner of the property has a duty of care to legal visitors to post warning and/or remove any dangers on the property to keep visitors safe.
  2. Breach of Duty: Next your lawyer needs to be able to prove that the defendant was negligent in their duty of care to you. Negligence — both by way of omission and action — comes in many forms. Failing to use a turn signal or choosing to behave recklessly are examples of negligence in traffic accident cases. In the case of a dangerous property, failing to de-ice 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, you can make a recovery in an injury claim, minus your share of the fault, as long as you hold less than 50% of the fault. So in proving causation, if the other driver was mostly at fault for the accident, you can still make a recovery even if they were not the sole cause of the accident. If the other driver in a car wreck 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 suffered a laundry list of damages, both economic and non-economic, ranging from tangible expenses like medical bills and lost wages as well as intangible costs like mental pain and anguish and disability.

If you were hurt in an accident because someone else was negligent and did not care about your safety, call an accident lawyer from Burger Law near Huntley today at (314) 500-HURT. We provide a free evaluation of your case and when you hire a Burger Law accident lawyer in Huntley, IL, we never rest until we win your claim and get you a complete financial recovery.

If you are injured because of a driver's negligent or reckless actions, you are owed damages. Every Burger Law Huntley-based Illinois accident lawyer has seen every type of auto accident and knows how to get you a full financial recovery.

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.

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Huntley, 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 Huntley and Illinois drivers break the rules. If a reckless or negligent driver caused you injury, call the Huntley, IL accident lawyers of Burger Law today. We have seen firsthand the devastation that a motorcycle accident can have on Huntley, IL individuals and families, and know exactly how to get you maximum compensation for all of your damages.

Truck Accident Lawyer in Huntley, IL

Truck accidents also present higher risk for those on the Huntley, 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 Huntley, 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 Huntley-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 Huntley 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 Huntley, 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 Huntley, IL or Illinois governmental entity. For example, if your child was hurt in a school bus accident, your Illinois accident lawyer in Huntley 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.
