Homewood Car Accident Lawyers

Car accidents remain a major problem in Illinois. Indeed, the state’s Department of Transportation (IDOT) reports that over 72,000 people were injured in crashes across the state in 2020. When these accidents are caused by reckless or negligent behavior, the car accident victims may be entitled to compensation for their damages. If you were injured in an accident, you need to contact experienced Homewood car accident lawyers who can help you protect your rights and explore your legal options. 

Most Common Car Accident Injuries

Car accident injuries can take many different forms. Injuries range widely in both kind and level of severity. Our firm has been serving victims and their families for over two decades. We have experience handling claims involving many different types of car accident injuries, including: 

  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Joint damage, including knee, hip, and shoulder injuries
  • Whiplash and other forms of soft tissue damage
  • Concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Spinal cord damage and back injuries
  • Internal injuries, including organ damage 
  • Psychological trauma

Proving Car Accident Liability

Another party can only be held liable for your injuries if you can prove that they are at fault for your accident. Under Illinois law, fault can be proven by establishing negligence. The most basic definition of negligence is the failure to take proper care when performing an activity. In the context of car accidents, negligence can come in many different forms. Some common examples include: 

  • Running a red light
  • Rolling through a stop sign
  • Speeding
  • Failure to signal
  • Making an unsafe lane change
  • Following another vehicle too closely
  • Distracted driving

Ultimately, if another driver, a vehicle manufacturer, or any other party failed to live up to their legal obligations and caused your accident as a result, you can hold them responsible for your damages. A qualified personal injury attorney can help you identify the liable parties in your case and assist you in determining what amount of compensation is appropriate for your losses.
