Rolling Meadows Car Accident Attorney
Serious car accidents can happen in any place and at any time. Indeed, even in the quiet community of Rolling Meadows, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) reports that approximately 1,400 vehicles are involved in collisions each year. The crashes lead to around 200 injuries, dozens of which are ‘incapacitating’. All auto accident victims deserve fair compensation. If you were severely injured in a crash, please contact an experienced Rolling Meadows car accident attorney who can help to protect your legal rights and financial interests.
Proving Car Accident Liability
In Illinois, car accident liability is established under the state’s comparative negligence system. A party can be held at fault for a crash if their unsafe actions are found to have caused the accident. Because the state uses a comparative fault standard, multiple parties can potentially share the liability for a collision. Indeed, in some cases, injured victims can be held partially at-fault for their own crash. To ensure that you are able to maximize your recovery, it is imperative that you work with an assertive attorney who will protect you from any unfair blame for the wreck.
