Arlington Heights is perhaps the most unique Chicago suburb. Arlington Heights has been the location for big studio movie shoots, Arlington Park Racetrack, and a ton of history. The village was even the home of World War II prison camps. The town also is the largest “village” in the United States, with a population over 75,000. With such a large population, and so many unique activities you can do in the village, there are unfortunately many opportunities to be involved in a car accident. If you are the victim of a negligent you must make sure you are legally asserting your right by speaking to an injury attorney.
When the opposing driver is at fault for your car accident, most likely the opposing driver was negligent. To prove negligence, usually you must show that the opposing driver owed a duty of care, the duty must have been breached by the opposing driver, the breach of said duty was the cause of the accident, and there must be an injury or damages. While this may sound complicated, our firm, headed by Charles Therman who has 17 years of experience proving such claims, is well equipped to handle even the most difficult of claims.
There is also a strict deadline in filing a claim for your injuries. This is known as the Statute of Limitations. In Illinois, the Statute of Limitations is two years. While there are few exceptions, you must file within the statute of limitations to preserve your legal claim. We at Therman Law Offices can help you file a claim to preserve and assert your legal right.
The process of filing a claim for personal injuries can be a confusing one. There are countless factors to consider, such as fault of parties. If you are injured due to the fault of the opposing party, you can usually file a negligence claim against the opposing party. Illinois is a contributory negligence state, meaning you are barred if you are more than 50% at fault. If you are less than 50 percent at fault, the percent of fault you are may be used to offset your recovery. Your injury attorney can inform you further and answer any questions you may have about the law.
