It’s no secret that Illinois roadways can be dangerous places. If you commute to work every day, you’ve likely had a few close calls involving drivers who cut you off on the highway. Motorists who fail to yield rights of way at merge points also place themselves and others at risk for injuries. Motor vehicle accidents happen every day and in every state throughout the country.
However, just because collisions occur frequently does not mean you should bear the financial strain that arises if you fall victim to another driver’s negligence. Drunk drivers, distracted drivers and those who simply ignore traffic regulations are dangerous to society. While you might be able to recognize signs of possible drunk driving or distracted driving (i.e., someone texting behind the wheel) there is no guarantee you’d be able to react safely and swiftly enough to avoid a collision.
If a negligent driver caused injury to you or your loved one suffers injury, your lives may be forever-changed. Even injuries that are not life-threatening can cause you to have to take time off work during recovery. When medical bills start piling up and no income is coming in, it can be tough to try to make ends meet.
That’s why Illinois law allows victims of motor vehicle accidents to seek justice by filing personal injury claims against those deemed responsible for their injuries. The Law Offices of Millon & Peskin can help you determine who that might be. Our experienced legal team is committed to acting on your behalf to seek the maximum compensation to which you may be entitled for the suffering you have endured.
