DuPage County car accident lawyer, distracted driving, cell phone use, car accident, car accident claimsDrivers in DuPage County and throughout Illinois are banned from using handheld electronic communication devices on the road (625 ILCS 5/12-610.2). However, a study conducted earlier this year suggests that a large percentage of Illinois car accidents continue to happen as a result of distracted driving and cellphones use. 

To be sure, according to an article in the Chicago Tribune, about 25 percent of drivers involved in a crash were on their phones immediately before the collision occurred. In other words, drivers are breaking the law concerning handheld cellphone use, and they may be causing traffic accidents.

Chicago car accident attorney, contributory fault, comparative fault, auto bodily injury claims, car accident claimsWhen another driver has caused a serious car accident that led to your injuries, it is important to think about filing a car accident claim in DuPage County. Even if you think you might have been partially to blame for a collision, it is important to avoid discussing liability with anyone—from the other driver to an auto insurance company—until you have spoken with a DuPage County car accident lawyer.

Why should you avoid discussing fault with anyone? If you do file a car accident claim, the defendant may be able to raise the defense of comparative fault, or contributory fault, in order to avoid be responsible for 100 percent of the damages.

You should know that, even if you do bear some responsibility for an accident, you can still recover damages from the defendant under Illinois law.

b2ap3_thumbnail_rear-ended-negligent-drivers-DuPage-County.jpgOne of the most traumatic life events is being involved in a car accident. Motor vehicle accidents take many forms, including the all too common fender bender and accidents involving excessive speed or impairment which can lead to high speed collisions or side impact accidents. Whichever type, car accidents can cause injuries and long term pain and suffering.

Rear-end accidents are no exception, and the injuries sustained by the impacted driver can be serious. The National Highway and Transportation Safety Administration reported that 28 percent of all crashes are rear-end collisions. This demonstrates how prevalent rear-end collisions are and how many negligent drivers share the roads with you.

If you were the victim of a rear-end collision caused by a driver who was not acting in a reasonable manner, you may be entitled to compensation—a monetary award for your injuries. Speaking with a respected personal injury attorney should be your first step in determining if you have a viable case.

DuPage County personal injury lawyers, winter crashesAs the weather turns colder, drivers gear up for winter weather driving. They are winterizing their cars, changing out their tires, and preparing emergency packs to go into the backs of their vehicles. Some may even be tuning into the weather station each night, just to be sure they are safe to drive the next day. Yet, not all will know what to do if a crash occurs. The following information can give you a better understanding of the most common types of winter crashes, and it can give you an idea on how to deal with them, should one happen to you or someone you love.

Vehicle Damage from Hail or Falling Debris 

When roads are closed, most drivers will stay home (rightly so since you could be held liable for ignoring closures). Unfortunately, keeping your car in the driveway does not necessarily prevent damage to your vehicle. Hail and falling trees, power lines, and large branches can do some extensive damage. If you have comprehensive insurance, it should cover your loss. If you do not have this form of insurance, you should seriously consider adding it.

social media, car accident claim, DuPage County car accident attorneyWhen a major life event occurs, people often post their news to social media accounts like Facebook to update friends and family. However, when a car accident happens, you may want to think twice before sharing.

Posting about your car accident on the Internet is not always a good idea, as social media can affect your car accident claim. Therefore, it is best to first contact a DuPage County car accident attorney to determine what steps you should do when you are in an auto accident. Consider the following issues:

  1. Insurance companies can use posts about an accident, like “We are all fine,” when determining how much compensation you can receive. Even though such comments could have been made before knowing the extent of your injuries, it is possible to take such comments out of context.
