Arlington Heights, Illinois Car Accident Injury Lawyers
Motor vehicle accidents, including car, truck, and motorcycle accidents cause millions of injuries every year in the U.S. Many of these injuries are very serious ones. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every ten seconds someone in the United States is involved in a car accident. Car crashes continue to be the leading cause of injury death in the United States for people ranging in age from three to thirty-three.
At Newland & Newland, LLP, we use our wealth of experience in successfully handling auto accident cases to research and investigate every possible cause of an accident. We want you to receive full compensation for your injuries.
Evaluating all of the facts of a motor vehicle accident requires skill and experience. Our Chicago-area offices will take over the investigation of your case, so you can concentrate on recovering physically and emotionally from your injuries. We'll help you locate an appropriate medical specialist, and we can sometimes make arrangements with your medical care providers to wait for payment until your case is resolved through settlement or trial.
The Law of Negligence
Automobile accidents are generally decided using the law of negligence. A person who negligently operates a motor vehicle may be required to pay any damages caused by their negligence, either to person or property. Generally, people who operate automobiles must exercise what's called "reasonable care under the circumstances." Failure to use reasonable care is the basis in most lawsuits for damages caused by a car accident.
Courts look to a number of factors in car accidents, in determining whether a driver has been negligent, such as:
- Driving too fast or too slowly
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Failing to signal while turning
- Disregarding weather or traffic conditions
- Disobeying traffic signs or signals
- Failing to drive on the right side of the road
- Driving fatigued or falling asleep at the wheel
Other factors, such as the roles of alcohol and drunk driving, improperly serviced vehicles, poorly designed or maintained roads, and malfunctioning traffic control signals can contribute to the causes of automobile crashes whose victims we represent at Newland & Newland, LLP. Also, if you have been involved in an auto accident with an uninsured driver, you should contact our offices immediately in order to preserve your valuable legal rights.
