Protecting the Rights of Motor Vehicle Accident Victims in DuPage County and the Surrounding Areas

The Illinois Department of Transportation reports that were nearly 300,000 motor vehicle accidents in the state during 2014. In many of these cases, victims were seriously injured and sustained significant losses through no fault of their own. Fortunately for people who find themselves in this situation, Illinois law allows people who are injured due to the negligence of others to recover compensation for their injuries.

What Causes Auto Accidents?

There are several causes of accidents that are often attributable to the negligence of another person. These include the following:

  • Distracted driving;
  • Speeding;
  • Following too closely;
  • Impaired driving;
  • Poor vehicle maintenance;
  • Defective vehicle design or manufacture;
  • Poorly designed or maintained roads;
  • Failure to yield; and
  • Ignoring poor weather conditions.

Accidents Caused by Drunk Drivers

After an accident, it is critical to have an attorney review your case to determine whether you will be able to file a claim. Even in cases in which the other party admits that he or she was at fault, you should still retain a lawyer to make sure that you can recover the full value of your claim.

Many accidents involving serious injuries are caused by drunk or impaired drivers. It is crucial for victims to understand that the fact that a drunk driver is arrested and criminally prosecuted will not result in the victim obtaining compensation. In order to do so, victims must file a claim against the drunk driver's insurance company or bring a civil action in court.

Damages From an Auto Accident Case

People who are injured in an auto accident often experience significant economic and non-economic losses, many of which are recoverable. Some of the types of damages that are often successfully sought in Illinois car accident cases are detailed below.

  • Medical Expenses – Even minor car accidents can cause injuries that require intensive and ongoing medical treatment. If you are seriously injured, your medical expenses could easily total into the tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.
  • Lost Income – If you are hurt in an accident, you may be unable to work for a significant period of time. In some cases, you may even develop disabilities that prevent you from ever working again. Fortunately, lost income is a recoverable loss in Illinois car accident cases.
  • Property Damage – Motor vehicle accidents can easily cause thousands of dollars of damage to your car and may even result in it being a total loss.
  • Physical and Emotional Pain and Suffering – As a car accident victim, it is possible that you will experience significant physical pain because of your injuries. In addition, you may also suffer emotional injuries in the form of anxiety, depression, or mental anguish as a direct result of being injured.
