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 you must have a claim that satisfies the legal requirements under Illinois civil law. Before we sign with you as a client, your Logan Square, IL accident lawyer from Burger Law will evaluate your case to make sure you have a qualified claim. From there, we will work tirelessly to prove all elements of your claim and demand maximum compensation for your damages.

Following the Illinois rules of evidence to document your argument, your Logan Square, 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 between you and the defendant such that the defendant owed you a duty of care. In a car accident case, this is automatically fulfilled 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, the owner of the property has a duty of care to legal visitors to be aware of safety hazards within a reasonable amount of time, and either provide warning or address/remove the danger to keep visitors safe.
  2. Negligence: Your lawyer then 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 yield the right of way or choosing to drive drunk are examples of auto accident negligence. In a slip and fall accident, 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 must show that the accident was caused by the defendant's behavior. Illinois' policy on negligence is that 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, you can receive a settlement and make the other driver pay even if their actions did not singularly cause the accident. If the other driver in a car accident is 80% responsible for the accident and you are 20% responsible, you can demand a settlement covering 80% of your total losses from the other party.
  4. Damages: Finally, your accident lawyer has to demonstrate that you experienced damages, or losses, because of the accident caused by the negligence of the defendant. As an injury victim in an accident, you have probably faced a laundry list of damages, both economic and non-economic, from concrete costs like treatment bills and loss of income as well as abstract costs like pain and suffering and disability.

If someone acted without regard for your safety and caused you to be in an accident, call the Logan Square area Illinois accident lawyer team of Burger Law today at (314) 500-HURT. We review your case for free and when you hire a Burger Law accident lawyer in Logan Square, IL, we never rest until we prove 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.

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 Logan Square, 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 Logan Square and Illinois drivers break the rules. If a reckless or negligent driver caused you injury, call the Logan Square, IL accident lawyers of Burger Law today.

Truck Accident Lawyer in Logan Square, IL

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