The most common type of personal injury or wrongful death claim involves traffic accidents such as car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and bus accidents. Traffic accidents may be caused by many factors such as driver negligence, defective equipment, or faulty warning systems. People traveling in these vehicles, however, are not the only ones at risk of being injured or killed. Thousands of innocent bystanders, including pedestrians and bicyclists, are killed each year by vehicles of all kinds.
Unfortunately, this does not mean that all car accident cases are easy to settle, that insurance companies can be depended on to do the right thing, or that attorney representation is unnecessary. The value of a car accident case depends upon two main factors: liability and damages. Liability generally refers to proving that a car accident, truck accident or motorcycle accident resulted from someone’s negligent conduct. Under the law, negligence means doing something that a reasonable person under similar circumstances would not do, or not doing something that a reasonable person would do. Once responsibility is proven for a traffic accident, the value of your injuries need to be determined. Did the car accident victim have surgery? Did the truck accident victim undergo physical therapy? How quickly did the motorcycle accident victim recover? How much time did the car accident victim miss from work? How do you place a figure on the pain and suffering you experienced? Will you require future medical treatment? Will you develop painful arthritis in the future? All of these questions, and more, will be answered by the auto accident attorneys at our law firm.
Illinois law requires motorists to carry vehicle insurance. When there is a car accident, many questions arise about the adequacy of insurance coverage. What happens if the driver causing the auto accident has only the minimum coverage ($20,000) required by law, but your medical bills are $40,000? Can anything be done? Have you ever heard of underinsured motorist coverage? Most people haven’t and are surprised to learn that this coverage is automatically part of the liability car insurance you purchase to protect yourself in the event you cause an auto accident.
