What Must I Prove in My Illinois Accident Claim?

You may feel entitled to compensation based on the circumstances surrounding your accident, but to make the at-fault party pay for your damages your claim must meet the minimum legal requirements under Illinois personal injury law. Before we sign with you as a client, your Kane County, IL accident lawyer from Burger Law will evaluate your case to determine whether you have a qualified claim. From there, 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 Kane County, 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 owe each other a duty to drive with reasonable care to avoid creating safety hazards for others on the road. 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 of Care: Next your lawyer must show that the defendant voilated 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 drive and text are examples of negligence in traffic accident cases. In a slip and fall accident, 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' policy on negligence is that of modified comparative negligence, meaning that when there are multiple parties who share fault for an accident, you can make a claim and recover damages, minus your share of the 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 they were not the sole cause of the accident. For example, if the other driver in your 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 damages from the other party.
  4. Damages: Lastly, your accident lawyer has to demonstrate that you suffered damages, or losses, because of the accident caused by the negligence of the defendant. As an injury victim in an accident, you likely have suffered a variety of damages, both economic and non-economic, from concrete costs like treatment bills and lost wages as well as intangible losses like mental pain and anguish and disability.

If someone acted without regard for your safety and caused you to be in an accident, call an accident lawyer from Burger Law near Kane County today at (314) 500-HURT. We provide a free evaluation of your case and when you hire a Burger Law accident lawyer in Kane County, IL, we never rest until we prove your claim and get you a complete financial recovery.

Kane County, 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 Kane County and Illinois roadways. If you are injured because of a driver's negligent or reckless actions, you are owed damages. Every Burger Law Kane County-based Illinois accident lawyer has seen every type of auto accident and knows how to get you a full financial recovery. Below are the most common types of claims our accident lawyer team in Kane County, IL see.

Car Accident Lawyer in Kane County, 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 Kane County, IL are:

Whatever the specific circumstances and causes of your car accident injuries, we know how car accident claims work. Our accident lawyer team inKane County, IL reviews every piece of evidence, including witness testimony, surveillance footage and photographs from the accident scene.

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

Truck Accident Lawyer in Kane County, IL

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