We offer legal assistance to help you build your negligence case and get you the appropriate compensation you deserve. Again, we are expected to not cause harm to others. If not maintained properly or used according to the law, cars can be deadly weapons. Laws provide consequences to those who fail to follow this set of rules.
Examples of how one might be found negligent during the use of an automobile are:
- Driving unsafely
- Driving without required glasses or contacts
- Texting or emailing while driving
- Taking eyes off the road for any reason
- Taking pictures while driving
- Drinking alcohol before or while driving
- Failing to yield or stop at posted signs
- Failing to maintain the auto’s brakes, lights, steering, etc.
If you were hurt by someone doing something above or similar, you probably have a case of negligence. We can help prove the defendant was negligent and therefore liable, through both factual and legal causation.
Following the accident, one of the first legal issues you’ll need to consider is liability. Who is at fault for causing the accident, and therefore liable to pay for the injuries and damage? Knowing who is truly at fault can be tricky, because the majority of car accidents are caused by driver negligence, poor road conditions, or a malfunction with one of the automobiles involved.
Here is an example: Susan is driving through her neighborhood, but is on her phone, and isn’t paying attention so she runs a stop sign. Gary is crossing her path through the same intersection. He isn’t required to stop, but is excessively speeding and not driving defensively when he collides with Susan’s car. Susan should have stopped, but Gary should have been driving the speed limit. Both drivers have contributed to this car accident, so the insurance companies will like disagree on who is responsible.
The legal system will have to apply comparative negligence laws to determine who is liable to pay for damages. In Illinois, this law states that an injured person may be able to recover damages if he or she is less than 50 percent at fault. The amount recovered can be adjusted in proportion to the amount of fault of each party in the car accident.
A judge may find one person in the automobile accident 80% at fault, and the driver who is 20% at fault would be able to collect damages, as their portion of blame is less than 50%. However, he or she may only be awarded 80% of the cost of damages and medical costs by the other driver’s insurance company.
