Car accidents can happen anywhere. The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) reports that in 2020, even though driving was greatly reduced due to stay-at-home orders in place across the state, there were still over 246,000 motor vehicle accidents reported to the police. While some were minor, sadly, others were very serious.

Under Illinois law, liability for auto accidents is based on the negligence standard. In simple terms, this means that a party can be held at fault for a crash if their unsafe actions contributed to the accident. In reality, proving negligence can be extremely challenging. To make the issue even more complicated, multiple parties can (and often do) share liability for the same accident. As Illinois is a comparative negligence state, parties will be held liable for an accident in direct proportion to their percentage of blame for the accident. This means that it is critically important that you are not unfairly blamed for any part of your own accident. If you are unjustly blamed, it can limit or reduce the amount of compensation you are able to receive for your injuries.
