Car Accident Lawyer
Compensation may be available through litigation if your car accident was someone else’s fault or caused by someone else’s negligence. For example, a driver who fails to stop at a red light is negligent because it is reasonable and expected that all drivers stop at red lights. If a person is injured because of this type of negligence, damages may be sought against the driver that failed to stop.
Even if the accident was not completely your fault, damages may be recovered under the Illinois system of modified comparative negligence, which allows drivers who are less than 50% at fault to recover damages through a Personal Injury lawsuit. If the accident was partially your fault, you will receive less money than if you were 0% responsible, but in an accident with critical or life-threatening injuries, the damages may be still be considerable.
