Hanover Park used to be called Ontarioville, though back then the population was under 500 people total. Times have changed in Hanover Park. Now, Hanover Park is home to over 20 parks, and includes farms, museums, and a nearby airport in O’Hare International Airport. Hanover Park has seen a very large increase in traffic from its’ Ontarioville days. Unfortunately, a negative side effect of the increased foot and driver traffic means an increased chance of being the victim of a negligent driving. If you or a loved one was a victim of such driving, contact an experienced injury attorney at Therman Law Offices to help you through the difficult process of filing a claim and preserving your right to compensation.
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. Speak with an injury attorney near Hanover Park directly about your case.
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.
