Car Accident Lawyers: Chicago & DuPage County
Automobile accidents occur for many reasons in the State of Illinois. As a result most car accidents typically involve reckless drivers, distracted drivers, distracted teenage drivers, drunk drivers, pedestrians, and elderly drivers practicing unsafe driving habits. Most noteworthy, more than nine people are injured on Illinois roads every hour, with a majority of those accidents occurring in the Chicago area.
Unfortunately, many car accidents result in personal injury or death to people who’ve done nothing wrong. As a result, Sutter Law Group specializes in representing clients who are victims of automobile accidents. Our car accident lawyers are available at any time to consult with new or prospective clients involved in a car accident.
HOW OUR CAR ACCIDENT LAWYERS ASSESS YOUR CASE
If you have suffered injury due to a car accident or a family member has died because of someone else’s recklessness, you may be wondering if you have legal grounds for an auto accident claim. Our Cook & DuPage County car accident lawyers will assess your case at no charge. There are three requirements for an auto accident claim:
1) WAS THE RESPONSIBLE PARTY NEGLIGENT?
For example, if the driver of a car crashed into another vehicle or pedestrian because he/she ignored a traffic signal, the car driver, under the law, would be considered negligent.
2) DID THE NEGLIGENCE LEAD TO THE PERSONAL INJURY?
Using the above example, if the innocent victim suffered a broken pelvis as a result of the crash, the driver’s negligence would be considered to have caused the personal injury.
3) DID THE PERSONAL INJURY RESULT IN HARM?
In the above scenario, if the innocent victim’s broken pelvis resulted in medical bills, lost wages, and/or pain and suffering, the injury would be considered to have resulted in compensatory damages.
Typical statute of limitations for many motor vehicle accidents is two years from the date of the accident. However; if the responsible party was a governmental entity or employee the statute of limitations is one year from the date of accident.
Delays in raising motor vehicle accident claims may limit or prevent recovery.
