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.
If the injured party was partially at fault, in Illinois that does not necessarily bar a claim. 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.
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. An injury attorney at Therman Law Offices (near Melrose Park) can help you file a claim to preserve and assert your legal right.
