Personal Injury

Naperville hit-and-run accident lawyer

Being in a car accident can be a very stressful and traumatic experience, especially if you are injured. If you are involved in a car accident, Illinois law states that you must stop to see if others who are involved are okay and to exchange insurance information. People who do not do so face fines, jail time, and even a driver’s license revocation. If you are in a vehicle collision, and the other person does not stop to stay at the scene or does not exchange information with you, that is called a hit-and-run crash. Being in a hit-and-run accident can cause serious stress and anxiety on your part, because you are probably worried about the financial ramifications of the accident. If you are in a hit-and-run collision, you should take certain steps to increase your chances of recovering compensation.

Call For Help

The first step you should take if you get into a car accident is to call for emergency services if you or anyone else are hurt. Even if you do not think you are injured, you should call 911 if you were inside of your vehicle when it was hit. Once help is on the way, you should try to move your vehicle to a safe spot if you are able to do so without risk of injury.

Naperville motorcycle accident injury lawyer

Getting into a traffic accident can be a frightening experience. For people who are in enclosed vehicles, such as cars or trucks, accidents can still be alarming, but for those who are involved in accidents when they are on a motorcycle, the injuries can be much more serious and even deadly. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 5,000 motorcyclists were killed in traffic crashes in 2017. In Illinois alone, approximately 160 motorcyclists were killed and more than 2,500 were injured in crashes in 2017. Motorcycles pose an inherent danger to riders because of the lack of protection the vehicle provides compared to other vehicles. If you have suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident, here are a few steps you should take immediately following the crash:

  1. Check Yourself for Injuries and Call 911 if Needed

Bloomingdale personal injury lawyer

There are very few things in this world that are strictly black and white. When it comes to personal injury claims, specifically for auto accident injuries, it can be difficult to place all of the blame on one person. Many car accidents involve actions by more than one driver that led to the crash. In some cases, the person making the injury claim may have even played a role in causing the collision. However, that does not necessarily mean that he or she is unable to claim compensation for injuries suffered in the accident.

Determining Fault for an Accident

After a car accident, the primary task is determining who is at fault for the crash. Figuring out who is liable can be difficult, because the events of the accident must be pieced together. To prove fault, you will have to show that the other driver was responsible for causing you harm, resulting in damages. Typically, this means you are providing evidence that another person acted negligently. In some cases, there may be more than one party responsible for causing the accident, or you may even have played a part in causing the accident. This is when the concept of comparative negligence comes into play.

Naperville rear-end collision injury lawyer

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were more than 6.4 million police-reported traffic accidents in 2017 in the United States. Of those, over 2.7 million people were injured and over 24,000 were killed in traffic crashes. Car accidents can result in minor injuries such as bruising, small cuts, or scratches, or more serious injuries such as whiplash, traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, or even death. The type and severity of injuries sustained in a car crash typically depends on the type of accident. Rear-end collisions are some of the most common vehicle accidents that occur and can result in a variety of injuries. If you have been hurt in a rear-end car accident, you may be entitled to compensation if another driver was at fault.

Causes of Rear-End Collisions

Rear-end accidents are common and are caused by a variety of factors. Some of the most common actions or behaviors that can lead to a rear-end collision include:

Bloomingdale slip and fall injury lawyer

Personal injury claims are not always the easiest cases to win. In a slip and fall or any case in which an injury occurs because of someone's negligence, the burden of proof falls on you, the plaintiff, not the defendant. This means you must be able to prove that the defendant is responsible for the injuries you are claiming to have sustained. Proving negligence can be a difficult process, and you do not want to make a mistake that could have been easily avoided. If you are pursuing a personal injury claim for a slip and fall case, be careful to avoid the following errors in order to increase your chances at receiving compensation:

Not Seeking Medical Attention

The entire premise of a slip and fall case is based on your injuries. You are trying to pursue compensation for injuries that you sustained because someone acted recklessly, and that negligence caused you to slip and/or fall. Seeing a physician is crucial, because it will provide a medical record of your injuries. You also need to make sure you are following your doctor’s orders and going to any follow-up appointments. Not seeking medical assistance can make it seem like your injuries are not as serious as you claim them to be.
