Bloomingdale personal injury attorney wrongful death

Losing a loved one in a car crash or other fatal accident can be devastating, and unfortunately, it is a sad reality for almost 1,000 Illinoisans each year. If you are one of the people affected, you may be struggling with financial stresses related to the incident as well as a difficult grieving process. Fortunately, if another driver was responsible for the vehicle collision, you may be able to obtain financial recovery through a wrongful death claim.

Initiating a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Illinois

In the case of wrongful death, the victim’s spouse and/or next of kin, such as children, siblings, or parents, may be entitled to the compensation the victim could have pursued through a personal injury lawsuit.

DuPage County personal injury attorney DUI truck accident

Alcohol is a factor in over 25 percent of fatal car crashes in Illinois each year, and when the responsible party is the driver of a semi-truck, the resulting accidents can be especially devastating. Because of the vehicles’ large size and weight, truck accidents can cause severe injuries and fatalities, and they often impact several other drivers and passengers. If you are injured by an intoxicated truck driver, you will likely need compensation to cover your costly medical expenses, and it is important to know who all was at fault for the accident so that you can hold all parties accountable.

Who Is Negligent in a Truck Accident Involving Alcohol?

It may seem straightforward to determine who was at fault for a drunk driving accident, but in the case of a semi-truck accident, there could be more than one negligent party.

Slip and fall accidents on business premises can happen to employees and the general public alike. Although they may seem minor at first, they can result in serious injuries and long-term disabilities depending on different factors.

Naperville personal injury lawyerAny behavior that removes a driver’s eyes or attention away from the road can pose a danger to others and cause a serious accident, but texting while driving gets much of the attention in distracted driving discussions. Many motorists have access to a smartphone at their fingertips at all times, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that cell phone use was a factor in 14 percent of distracted driving accident fatalities in 2018. If you have been injured in an accident involving texting and driving, you should be aware of the effects that it may have on your ability to seek compensation. In some cases, a negligent driver may be found liable for your pain and suffering. 

Legal Implications of Texting and Driving in Illinois

Under Illinois law, texting and driving can be a factor in both civil and criminal litigation. Cell phone use behind the wheel may affect your case in the following ways:

  • Another driver’s texting can strengthen your case against him or her. Texting while driving, along with other types of distracted driving, can be considered forms of negligence because they show a disregard for other drivers’ safety. If you were injured by a driver who was texting and you have evidence to prove it, you stand a better chance at receiving full compensation for your damages through a personal injury claim.
