Personal Injury

DuPage County motorcycle accident lawyer, helmet usage, motorcycle accident injuries, serious injury, personal injuryIf you are seriously injured in a motorcycle accident in DuPage County, who is liable for your injuries? The answer to that question depends upon many different factors, such as the type of accident and how and when the motorcycle accident occurred.

Often, motorcycle accidents are caused by another motorist’s negligence. For instance, a passenger car driver might have been distracted and failed to notice a motorcyclist in his blind spot. Or, for example, a truck driver might not have gotten enough sleep the previous night and caused a drowsy driving accident.

In most scenarios like these, it may seem obvious that the other driver is at fault. But what happens if the motorcyclist sustained head injuries that could have been avoided if he had worn a helmet?

distracted driving, DuPage County auto accident lawyer, distracted pedestrian, pedestrian accidents, pedestrian injuryWhen we think about pedestrian accidents involving a person’s distraction, we often think about distracted driving and make assumptions about a motorist’s behavior behind the wheel. However, as a fact sheet from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) highlights, distracted walking is a problem, too. To be sure, distracted walking may be a factor in pedestrian accidents involving motor vehicles.

What are the facts you need to know about distracted walking? And when might a jury hold a distracted pedestrian liable for a car accident?

truck accident injury prevention, DuPage County truck accident attorney, truck accidents, Illinois truck accidentsWhen a motorist is involved in a highway accident involving a tractor-trailer in DuPage County, there is a high likelihood of serious or fatal injuries. As a fact sheet from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) explains, large trucks often weigh between 20 and 30 times as much as a passenger vehicle, and they have a greater ground clearance than smaller vehicles. As such, collisions between 18-wheelers and passenger cars are often deadly. 

Federal law currently requires large trucks to have rear underride guards to prevent a passenger car from going underneath the truck in the event of a crash. However, these guards are not always enough to prevent serious and fatal injuries.

There may be a new solution to preventing serious and fatal injuries in trucking accidents: side guard rails. According to a recent article in U.S. News & World Report, while rear underride guards may be insufficient when it comes to reducing the risk of a deadly crash, adding a requirement of side guard rails might actually serve such a purpose.

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.
