Sometimes, things happen in life that have long-lasting or even permanent consequences. In some situations, such consequences may bring added reward and blessing to a life, while others leave long paths of sorrow and devastation in their wakes. Illinois motor vehicle accidents are often among the latter, resulting in many serious injuries and fatalities every year.
In this state and throughout the nation, negligent and reckless drivers place themselves and others at risk for injury. You might be alert and cautious behind the wheel; however, you may not be able to react swiftly or safely in time to avoid a crash with a nearby drunk driver. Another motorist does not necessarily have to be drunk to be a danger to you and your family.
Someone who fails to yield the right-of-way, blows through a red light or travels at speeds beyond the posted limits can also cause a sudden collision that results in neck pain, back injuries, broken bones, lacerations or worse. It is understandable that you might feel angry and frustrated upon learning that such a collision was easily avoidable had it not been for the other driver’s careless behavior. If you’re injured in a car accident, you will hopefully receive immediate and thorough medical care to help you recover from your injuries.
What about the economic losses associated with your situation? Who will pay for those? The Law Offices of Millon & Peskin, in Illinois is fully equipped to help you navigate the civil justice system to file a legal claim against a motorist whose negligence caused you injury. While no amount of money can replace the loss of a human life or undo any emotional harm that has been done, compensation awarded in successfully litigated claims can be used to help offset medical expenses, lost wages and other costs often associated with motor vehicle accidents.
