Cases We Handle
There are different types of car accidents, and each type of accident requires specific knowledge and abilities to handle. The following is a list of common personal injury lawsuits in Ashburn, Illinois that we can handle:
ATV accidents can be deadly, even though these vehicles are supposed to be for recreation. They are equipped to only hold a driver, but many times, kids and adults will ride with passengers, and sometimes, activity on these four-wheeled vehicles can become negligent and irresponsible, leading to serious accidents and injuries.
Bicycle & Pedestrian Accidents
Often, bicycle and pedestrian accidents are the fault of a motorist engaging in negligent behavior, although sometimes, these accidents are just what they are called – accidents. Because most bicyclists and pedestrians have nothing to protect them, they end up suffering severe injury.
Injuries from these types of accidents can come from a variety of ways, whether the victim is a rider on the bus, a driver or passenger in another vehicle, a pedestrian, or a bicyclist. Bus accident lawsuits can be more intricate than regular personal injury lawsuits, because they may be filed against a company or a town or city.
Distracted Driving Accidents
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recognizes three ways a driver can be distracted: manually, visually, and cognitively. However, the most common thing that distracts drivers is their cell phones.
Drunk Driving or Driving Under the Influence Accidents
Even though driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or higher is illegal, people do it every day. Drunk drivers and people who are under the influence of drugs cause thousands of accidents every year.
Hit & Run Accidents
Leaving the scene of an accident is also against the law. If another driver hits your vehicle and leaves the scene of the accident, try to get any information you can, including a license plate number and description of the vehicle and the driver, if possible.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Car accidents and truck accidents are the most common accidents that occur on the highways and the byways of America. Every year, thousands of people are injured and killed in these accidents. While many are caused by negligence, others are just what the word says – accidents.
