What Must I Prove in 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 you must have a claim that satisfies the legal requirements under Illinois tort law. Before we sign with you as a client, your Little Village, 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 prove all elements of your claim and demand a full recovery.

Using evidence as allowed by the Illinois rules of evidence, your Little Village, IL Burger Law accident lawyer 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 owe each other a duty to drive with reasonable 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 post warning and/or remove any dangers on the property to keep visitors safe.
  2. Breach of Duty of Care: Your lawyer then must show that the defendant was negligent in 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 speed are examples of negligence in traffic accident cases. In a slip and fall accident, failing to de-ice 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 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 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 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, your lawyer will make sure that you receive payment covering 80% of your damages from the other party.
  4. Damages: Finally, your accident lawyer has to demonstrate that you experienced lossses known as damages because of the accident the defendant caused. As an injury victim in an accident, you have probably suffered a variety of damages, both economic and non-economic, from tangible costs like treatment bills and lost wages as well as abstract losses like pain and suffering and disability.

If someone acted without regard for your safety and caused you to be in an accident, call the Little Village 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 Little Village, IL, we never rest until we win your claim and bring you the recovery you deserve.

If you are injured because of a driver's negligent or reckless actions, you are owed damages.

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Little Village, 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 Little Village and Illinois drivers break the rules. If a reckless or negligent driver caused you injury, call the Little Village, IL accident lawyers of Burger Law today.

Truck Accident Lawyer in Little Village, IL

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