Representing the Rights of Car Accident Victims in Arlington Heights, Hoffman Estates, and Throughout Chicago

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) indicates that there were 84,652 injuries as a result of traffic crashes in 2014. Car accidents are capable of causing extremely serious and life-changing injuries, many of which can leave you with significant medical expenses. In addition, if you are seriously hurt, you may be unable to work for a long period of time, resulting in a substantial loss of income. Fortunately, you may be able to recover for these and other losses by filing a personal injury claim.

Recognizing Negligence in Auto Accidents

As is the case in other kinds of preventable accidents, in order for motor vehicle accident victims to recover compensation, they must be able to establish that their accident was the result of someone else's negligent conduct. Generally speaking, negligence occurs when someone fails to act reasonably or breaks some safety rule that is meant to protect the general public. There are a number of ways that other drivers can negligently cause accidents, including the following:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Following too closely
  • Failing to use headlights at night
  • Impaired driving, such as DUI
  • Running stop signs
  • Ignoring stop lights
  • Failing to maintain their vehicle
  • Failing to yield the right of way
  • Aggressive driving

There are many other ways that a driver could negligently cause a traffic accident. The professionals at Therman & Roach, Attorneys at Law, can review the facts of your case in order to determine whether you have a claim. If you do, we will aggressively negotiate with the insurance company handling your case to get you the compensation to which you are legally entitled. If the insurance company is unwilling or unable to settle for a reasonable amount that adequately compensates you for your losses, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf and take your case to trial, if necessary.
