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 your claim must meet the minimum legal requirements under Illinois civil law. Before taking on your case, your Robinson, IL accident lawyer from Burger Law will evaluate your case to make sure you have a legitimate claim. After that, we will work ceaselessly to build your case and demand a full recovery.

Using evidence as allowed by the Illinois rules of evidence, your Robinson, 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. This is implied in auto accident claims, as all motorists owe each other a duty to drive with care to avoid putting others in danger. 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. Breach of Duty of Care: Your lawyer then needs to be able to prove that the defendant was negligent and breached 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 the case of a dangerous property, 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 law follows a model of modified comparative negligence, meaning that when there are multiple parties who share fault for an accident, you can make a recovery in an injury claim, reduced by the amount of fault you carry, for anyone who is less than 50% at 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, you can demand a settlement 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 as a result of the accident the defendant caused. As the victim in an accident, you have probably faced a variety of damages, both economic and non-economic, including concrete expenses like treatment costs and loss of income as well as abstract losses like mental pain and anguish and disability.

If someone acted without regard for your safety and caused you to be in an accident, call an accident lawyer from Burger Law near Robinson today at (314) 500-HURT. We review your case for free and your Burger Law Robinson, IL accident lawyer will not stop fighting until we prove your claim and get you a complete financial recovery.

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

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

Truck Accident Lawyer in Robinson, IL

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