What Must I Prove in My Illinois Accident Claim?

You may feel like you deserve to be compensated when you have been in any 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 Lisle, IL accident lawyer from Burger Law will evaluate your case to determine whether you have a legitimate 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 Lisle, IL will prove the four requirements of 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 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: Your lawyer then needs to be able to 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 come to a stop at a stop sign or choosing to behave recklessly 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 has to attribute the cause of the accident to the defendant's behavior. Illinois' policy on negligence is that of modified comparative negligence, which means that in cases where fault is shared by multiple parties, anyone can make a claim, minus your share of the fault, for anyone who is less than 50% at fault. So in proving causation, 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. 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: Finally, your accident lawyer has to prove that you suffered lossses known as damages as a result of the accident caused by the negligence of the defendant. As the victim in an accident, you likely have faced a variety of damages, both economic and non-economic, from tangible expenses like medical bills and loss of income as well as intangible losses like pain and suffering and disability.

If you have been injured in an accident because someone else was negligent and did not care about your safety, speak to an accident lawyer from Burger Law near Lisle today at (314) 500-HURT. We will evaluate your case for free and your Burger Law Lisle, IL accident lawyer will not rest until we prove your claim and get you a complete financial recovery.

Lisle, 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 Lisle and Illinois roadways. If you are injured because of a driver's negligent or reckless actions, you are owed damages. Every Burger Law Lisle-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 Lisle, 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 Lisle and Illinois drivers break the rules. If a reckless or negligent driver caused you injury, call the Lisle, IL accident lawyers of Burger Law today. We have seen firsthand the devastation that a motorcycle accident can have on Lisle, IL individuals and families, and know exactly how to get you maximum compensation for all of your damages.

Truck Accident Lawyer in Lisle, IL

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