What Must I Prove in My Illinois Accident Claim?

You may feel entitled to compensation based on the circumstances surrounding your accident, but in order to make a financial recovery for your damages you must have a claim that satisfies the legal requirements under Illinois personal injury law. Before we sign with you as a client, your Lombard, IL accident lawyer from Burger Law will evaluate your case to make sure you have a legitimate claim. After that, 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 Lombard, IL Burger Law accident lawyer will prove the four requirements of your Illinois personal injury case.

  1. Duty of Care: We must establish that there was a relationship through which 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: Next your lawyer needs to be able to prove 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 use a turn signal or choosing to drive drunk 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 is where we connect the dots. Your injury lawyer has to show that the accident was caused by the defendant's negligence. Illinois' policy on negligence is that of modified comparative negligence, meaning that in cases where fault is shared by multiple parties, anyone can make a recovery in an injury 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 party 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 covering 80% of your damages from the other party.
  4. Damages: Lastly, your accident lawyer has to demonstrate that you suffered damages, or losses, as a result of the accident the defendant caused. As an injury victim in an accident, you likely have suffered a variety of damages, both economic and non-economic, ranging from tangible expenses like treatment costs and loss of income as well as intangible losses 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, speak to an accident lawyer from Burger Law near Lombard today at (314) 500-HURT. We will evaluate your case for free and your Burger Law Lombard, IL accident lawyer will not stop fighting until we win your claim and bring you the recovery you deserve.

The Bureau of Justice Statistics found that over half of personal injury cases were motor vehicle claims.

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

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in Lombard, 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 Lombard and Illinois drivers break the rules.

Truck Accident Lawyer in Lombard, IL

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