Lombard personal injury attorney

Picture this: You are in your car, stopped at a red light. The light turns green, so you hit the gas, but all of a sudden, a car running a red light comes out of nowhere and slams into the side of your vehicle. You put your hazard lights on and get out of your vehicle, trying to assess any damage to you or your car. You talk to the other driver and ask for their insurance information, but the other driver does not have insurance. What do you do in a situation like this?

Uninsured motorist collisions happen more often than you might think. According to the latest data available from the Insurance Information Institute, approximately 13 percent, or one in eight, motorists were uninsured in the United States in 2015. Even if a person has insurance, his or her coverage might not fully cover the costs of the damages sustained in an accident. If you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist, here are a few tips to follow:

IL injury lawyerFor many American teenagers, getting their first driver’s license is a rite of passage that is eagerly met with excitement. Though this can be a fun time for teens, studies show that teenagers are one of the most accident-prone driving demographics. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car crashes are still the leading cause of death for teenagers between the ages of 12 and 19. It can be scary to allow your teen to drive on their own, but fortunately, there are things you can do to decrease the risk of your teen getting into an accident. Here are a couple of tips you can use to teach your teenager how to be the best driver possible:

Ensure Your Teen Gets Enough Experience

Accidents commonly happen when teenagers are young and inexperienced. Many schools offer programs where teens can take driver’s education and end the course by successfully getting their driver’s license, but these programs often do not provide enough necessary driving time. Most school programs only offer students about six hours of driving practice, while the total number of hours needed to become proficient is somewhere around 50 hours. Make sure you give your teen enough time to feel comfortable behind the wheel and know what they are doing.

Set a Good Example

You are the parent and your teenager looks to you as a role model for how they should behave. You should make sure you are setting good driving examples for your teen to be following. By wearing your seatbelt every time you are in the car, not using your cell phone, not being distracted by other things, not speeding and not getting into fits of road rage, your teen knows how they should act while driving.

DuPage County Retail Store Accident AttorneyIf you are hurt in a fall or other accident on business property, you might think that you can threaten the business with a lawsuit and net a windfall of thousands of dollars. However, it is not that simple. You have to prove that your accident was the business’s fault and that you suffered serious injuries and financial losses as a result of the accident.

Proving the Accident Was the Business’s Fault

Suppose you trip and fall down in a store, and nobody sees you fall. You get up, walk to the customer service counter, and report that you just fell and you think you broke your wrist. Unless there was a store camera trained on that spot or there was a witness to the accident, you have no proof that your accident was the business’s fault. You could have just tripped over your own feet.

Now suppose you walk the manager back to the spot where you fell. You point out a puddle of liquid on the floor and the corresponding stains on your pants. Now you have some evidence as to how the accident happened: you slipped on the puddle. But this is still not proof that the store is at fault.

IL injury lawyerGetting into a car accident can be unsettling and leave some people in a state of shock. Depending on the severity of the accident, you may have sustained minor injuries, like bruising or superficial cuts, or you may have experienced severe injuries, such as broken bones, brain injuries or injuries to your spinal cord.

While minor injuries can be annoying, severe injuries can stay with you for life and may even affect your ability to work. If you pursue a car accident negligence claim, there are certain things that you must prove in order to achieve a successful outcome. First, you must prove that the other driver was at fault for the accident and behaved in a negligent manner. Next, you must prove that the car accident resulted in your injuries.

In order to do this, you will need certain records and documents to make your case. Here are a few types of important documents that you will need to pursue a car accident negligence claim:

Here are a few tips to keep you safe while on the road and decrease your chances of being in a car accident:

Pay Attention to the Task at Hand

Distracted driving has become a large problem with the rise of smartphones and other electronic devices. When you are behind the wheel, your full and undivided attention should be on driving and the road in front of you. Getting distracted by your cell phone or other things in the car can cause you to be unaware of things happening outside.
