Illinois car accident lawyerIt has been reported that, despite laws designed to help keep drivers focused on the road, the rate of auto accidents occurring in Illinois continues to increase. If you are injured in a car accident  the pain suffered can have lasting results. However, the law provides a variety of options one can pursue to help offset the various expenses that accompany most automobile accident injuries.

Your Options

If you or someone close to you is injured, whether as a pedestrian, driver or passenger, it is important to know the various avenues to consider when seeking monetary relief to help pay for medical bills or cover loss of income.

  • Insurance Claims - Illinois law requires all drivers to maintain pre-determined levels of automobile insurance. The amount you may be entitled to can depend on the severity of the injury. Additional funds to cover loss of income may be due you, depending on your situation. The source of compensation may include both your insurance and that of the other driver.
  • Civil Lawsuits - With the help of an experienced attorney, one may also file a civil lawsuit to collect compensation from the at-fault driver.
  • Product Liability - If it is determined that the cause of the accident was due to a faulty or malfunctioning auto component, you may pursue compensation from the manufacturer.
