When you get behind the wheel of a car to drive on an Illinois roadway, you are obligated to adhere to all state traffic and safety regulations. Motor vehicle accidents often occur when drivers fail to so. The problem is that no matter how well you adhere to state laws or how alert and cautious you are while driving, there is little to nothing you can do about another person’s driving behavior.
If a car comes barreling up behind you and slams into your rear bumper because the driver was looking down at a cell phone and texting instead of paying attention the road, you and anyone traveling in your car might suffer serious injuries because of that person’s negligence. Distracted drivers, drunk drivers and those who are intentionally reckless are menaces to the road, placing themselves, other travelers and pedestrians at great risk. Perhaps you or your child are currently recovering from an automobile collision that a negligent driver caused.
It is no secret that medical care is expensive. You should not have to carry the full burden of costs associated with an accident you did not cause. That is why Illinois law allows you seek legal accountability against any and all parties deemed responsible for your or your child’s injuries. Emotional pain and suffering and economic loss are additional compensatory damages that often cause trauma to accident victims.
