Chicago Auto Accident Lawyers

Chicago has much to be proud of, but our heavy traffic isn’t a top contender. With all that traffic comes dangerous car accidents, which are often caused by driver negligence. If a negligent motorist leaves you or someone you love injured, don’t wait to consult with an experienced Chicago auto accident lawyer. 

Driver Negligence

Every motorist owes everyone else on the road a duty of care that includes adhering to comprehensive driving laws, taking the road’s condition into account, and allowing for the safe passage of others. Failure to take this immense responsibility seriously amounts to driver negligence, which can come in any of the following forms:

Your Legal Damages

Your auto accident claim will address the damages – or losses – you experience as a result of the other driver’s negligence. In addition to property damage to your vehicle, these legal damages break down into the following categories:

  • Medical costs, which can stretch out into the future and are often exceptionally high
  • Lost earnings, which can lead to an accumulation of financial losses into your future (if your earning capacity is diminished)
  • Pain and suffering, which can lead to challenging emotional consequences

Your Auto Accident Claim

In order to bring a successful auto accident claim – and obtain the compensation you need to recover fully – you’ll need to demonstrate that all the following elements apply:

  • Duty of Care – Motorists owe one another a well-defined duty of care.
  • Breach – You must show that the other driver breached the duty of care owed to you by engaging in some form of negligence or wrongdoing. 
  • Causation – You will also need to connect the other driver’s negligence to the injury-causing car accident, which means that his or her negligence must have been its cause. 
  • Damages– Finally, you must have suffered damages that the law is prepared to compensate you for (as listed above). 

Proving the elements of your claim and demonstrating your total damages is legally complicated, which makes working with a dedicated auto accident lawyer paramount. 

The Insurance Company

Your claim will be filed with the at-fault driver’s insurance provider. One universal truth about the insurance industry is that it is generated by profits, which means that the provider handling your claim is going to do what it can to limit your settlement amount. Two things you can do to protect your claim from the outset include:

  • Seeking the medical attention that you need and following your doctor’s instructions carefully.
  • Consulting with an experienced auto accident lawyer early in the process and allowing him or her to communicate with the insurance company on your behalf.
