A city such as Schaumburg offers individuals plenty of opportunities for both visitors and residents. Schaumburg is home to one of the largest shopping malls in the nation, Woodfield Mall. Woodfield Mall is known for its’ endless amounts of stores, food options, and shoppers. Unfortunately, this can also lead to injuries from car accidents. While an accident is always an unfortunate event, you still must make sure your rights are legally asserted. Speak immediately to an experienced injury attorney.
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.
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 Schaumburg) can help you file a claim to preserve and assert your legal right.
Filling for Possible Negligence
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.
