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 legally demand a recovery for your damages you must have a claim that satisfies the legal requirements under Illinois tort law. Before taking on your case, your Rantan, IL accident lawyer from Burger Law will assess your case to make sure you have a legitimate claim. After that, we will work ceaselessly to build your case and negotiate an excellent settlement.

Using evidence as allowed by the Illinois rules of evidence, your Rantan, 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 owe each other a duty to drive with 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. Negligence: Next your lawyer must prove that the defendant was negligent in 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 rope off or cover a hole in the sidewalk could be a breach of duty of care.
  3. Causation: This is where we connect 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, 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, as long as you hold less than 50% of the fault. Conversely, this means that if the other driver was mostly at fault for the accident, you can still make a recovery even if they were not the sole cause of the accident. For example, if the other party in your 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 total losses from the other party.
  4. Damages: Finally, your accident lawyer has to demonstrate that you suffered damages, or losses, as a result of the accident caused by the negligence of the defendant. As an injury victim in an accident, you likely have faced a variety of damages, both economic and non-economic, ranging from tangible expenses like medical 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, speak to an accident lawyer from Burger Law near Rantan today at (314) 500-HURT. We provide a free evaluation of your case and your Burger Law Rantan, IL accident lawyer will not stop fighting until we win your claim and bring you the recovery you deserve.

Rantan, 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 Rantan and Illinois roadways. If you are injured because of a driver's negligent or reckless actions, you are owed damages. Every Burger Law Rantan-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 Rantan, IL see.

Car Accident Lawyer in Rantan, 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 Rantan, IL are:

Whatever the specific circumstances and causes of your car accident injuries, we know how car accident claims work. Our accident lawyer team inRantan, IL reviews every piece of evidence, including witness testimony, surveillance footage and photographs from the accident scene. Once we determine who is liable for your injuries, we will aggressively and tenaciously work to get you justice and make sure they are held accountable.

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

Truck Accident Lawyer in Rantan, IL

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