Restoring Dignity & Control After An Injury 

Motor vehicle accidents: Who is liable for damages?

| Apr 10, 2019 | Motor Vehicle Accidents |

When a collision occurs on an Illinois roadway, the result is often catastrophic, if not deadly. Recovery periods following motor vehicle accidents can take weeks or months. In fact, many injuries cause partial or full permanent disabilities.

No matter how safe or skilled of a driver you are, you can’t control the actions of others behind the wheel. All it takes is a moment of distraction or someone disregarding traffic regulations to turn an uneventful trip to the grocery store or commute to work into a tragic event. If you suffer injury, you’ll likely be looking at thousands of dollars in medical bills, not to mention the hassle of getting your car fixed (or buying a new one) and having to take time off work.

Why should you be the one to carry the full financial burden associated with an accident you didn’t cause? The state allows accident victims to seek legal accountability against those who caused their injuries. To do so, you must first file a personal injury legal claim in civil court.

The legal aspects connected to many motor vehicle accidents can be quite stressful. Beyond filing an initial claim, you must also prove that someone was negligent and that your injuries were caused by this factor. The Law Offices of Millon & Peskin, in Illinois, are fully committed to helping you gather evidence to build a strong case as a plaintiff in a personal injury case, regarding any injury-causing collision that occurred in this state.
