DuPage County auto accident attorney

Car accidents seem like a common occurrence, right? We are always hearing about some sort of collision on the news, but many of us may have never been in a vehicle crash ourselves. When you are in a traumatic event, such as an auto accident, adrenaline begins to flow through your veins, which can temporarily alter your thought process. Your judgment may be off or you may be feeling scared or confused. Although these are all normal feelings, they can pave the way for mistakes to be made that could affect your rights after an Illinois car accident. Here are a few mistakes you should avoid making after an accident:

  • Leaving the scene. In Illinois, you are required to stop and exchange insurance and contact information with all other parties if you are involved in a car accident. If people are injured or hurt, you should also call emergency services for medical attention. Leaving the scene of an accident in Illinois is actually a crime for which you can go to jail. Sticking around at the scene also helps you, however, as it allows you to exchange information and file a police report, both of which can aid you in receiving compensation for the accident.

Naperville car accident attorney T-bone collision

Car accidents can range in severity from a simple fender-bender in which nobody is hurt to more severe crashes that total the vehicle and kill the occupants. Many factors affect the severity of a motor vehicle collision, including the cause of the accident, the speed at which the vehicles were traveling, and even whether or not the occupants were wearing seat belts at the time of impact. While any auto accident has the capacity to be severe in both property damage and injuries to those involved, T-bone car accidents can be especially serious.

What Is a T-Bone Collision?

T-bone accidents are named so because the two vehicles involved in resemble the letter T when colliding. T-bone accidents are also referred to as side-impact collisions, because one vehicle will strike the other in the side. All car accidents can result in injuries, but side-impact crashes can result in especially severe injuries or even death. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), side-impact crashes were responsible for 23 percent of accident fatalities in 2018.

If your child has suffered an injury, seek medical help as soon as possible, then contact a DuPage County personal injury attorney at Mevorah Law Office, LLC. We can work with you to ensure that you get the appropriate compensation to cover your child’s medical expenses. Call us at 630-932-9100 for a free consultation.A big part of raising a child is protecting him/her from harm, which is almost impossible with all the dangers that exist in and out of one’s home. However, things like seat belts and bicycle helmets are a few of the devices created specifically to prevent a child from injury. Unfortunately, even with precautions, injuries can still happen, but some injuries are preventable and only occur because someone else was negligent or reckless. Further, some of these injuries happen in environments that cater to children and should have better protocols in place to keep everyone safe.

If an injury is the result of a preventable error on the part of another, retaining the services of an experienced personal injury attorney is crucial to being compensated for the costs of the child’s recovery. A tragic example of an injury to a child, one which resulted in his death, occurred when the seven-year-old fell from a zip line at a gym in suburban Chicago. The family has since initiated a lawsuit against the gym for failing to supervise the child and provide safety devices that would have prevented his injuries. A discussion of the common types of injuries a child can suffer, as well as the types of remedies available, will follow below.

Common Childhood Injuries

As reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, unintentional injuries are the leading cause of death among children in the United States. Specifically, each year, more than 12,000 individuals under the age of 19 die from unintentional injuries, and more than 9.2 million are treated in emergency departments for non-fatal injuries. When a child is injured due to the negligence of another, not only must the child cope with the injury and its effects, but so will his/her parents. Some types of injuries common to children include the following:

Lombard personal injury attorneyAt the receiving end of an accident, there is always a victim—a person whose life has been altered; a family that is struggling to pay their bills because of unpaid medical bills and lost time at work; someone who is stressed and injured and unsure of how to put the pieces back together. But there is help available. A personal injury claim could help you and your family move forward. The following information can help you determine if you may be eligible.

Auto Accident Claims

Drivers carry insurance to protect themselves, should an accident happen. If one happens to you or someone you love, you should immediately file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance. However, it is important to understand that, in Illinois, compensation payouts are based upon fault. Insurance companies will use this to their full advantage by shifting as much blame as they can over to you, ultimately reducing their payout. If they cannot shift blame, then they will attempt to reduce their payout by minimizing your losses and injuries.
