Car Accident
Lawsuits in Illinois

A car accident can have life-long repercussions – financially, physically, and mentally. To protect the rights of victims, the state of Illinois has implemented several laws about automobile accidents. Even if you partially contributed to the cause of the collision, you can seek justice.

You shouldn’t have to deal with this strain alone. Legal regulations in Illinois allow you to pursue financial compensation to alleviate stress and monetary burdens. With proper documentation and representation from a car accident attorney, you can seek reparations within two years of the accident.

We understand the complexities of Illinois law. Allow our car accident attorneys in Chicago to provide legal counsel and represent your case. We know what you’ve been through, and we’re here to help you pursue justice with thorough explanations and knowledge backed by years of experience.

How Is Fault Determined
in a Vehicle Accident?

Fault isn’t always as black and white as we’d like it to be – especially in auto accidents. Even if you are innocent, the responsible party may attempt to deflect their liability and place blame on you. We’ve seen insurance companies resort to liability claims to avoid paying victims.

That’s where “modified comparative fault” comes into play. Illinois law will designate responsibility for damages based on what they believe to be the parties’ fault. For example, if the law finds you to be 20 percent responsible for your accident, your settlement will be reduced by that percentage.

But how do we know who is really at fault?

Understanding the cause of the accident is the first step on the road to injury compensation.

You’ll need to assess all of the contributing factors – even those that are difficult to see. That’s why it’s vital to seek the counsel of a seasoned, experienced injury claim lawyer.

Our knowledgeable legal team will uncover all of the potentially liable parties, including the at-fault driver’s insurance company, the manufacturers of defective products, and worker’s compensation insurance. Sometimes, we even enlist the help of accident reconstruction experts.

Our car accident lawyers will do whatever it takes to determine fault. We‘ll help you present the strongest case to reach the settlement you deserve.
