Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer On How To Win Your Car Accident Case.

Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer On How To Win A Car Accident Cases If You Have Been Injured In A Crash. Here's What You Need To Know.

When you have been injured in a vehicle or by a vehicle (car, motorcycle, bicycle, truck, on while on foot), your personal injury case turns on the Illinois Motor Vehicle Code (known as the "Rules of the Road"), and your motor vehicle accident lawyer's knowledge of them.

Every personal injury case involving a car accident, truck accident, bicycle accident, or car versus pedestrian accident in Chicago Illinois (or in any State for that matter) depends on a good and thorough familiarity with the Rules of the Road because the injured person has to prove that the accident was the other guy’s fault.

Location Matters

And traffic laws in motor vehicle accidents are different from State to State. When evaluating whether you have a good car accident injury case, you, and especially your personal injury lawyer, must be familiar with the Rules of the Road in Illinois.

Individual cities, like Chicago, have their own ordinances regarding trucks, cars, motorcycles, and bicycles. So you need a lawyer who knows what Rules to apply to determine who had the right of way and therefore, who was at fault for your accident.

And, in accidents involving semi-trucks, Federal regulations and laws apply to trucks and truck drivers.

Full Range of Injury

Injuries in car accident, motorcycle accident, pedestrian versus car accidents and bicycle accidents can cause temporary muscle strain type injuries like whiplash and a thrown out back. They can also cause cuts from broken glass, contact with the road, broken bones from the tremendous impact forces. And they range all the way up to knee and shoulder injuries, and even paralysis and death.  

Any good motor vehicle accident lawyer will tell you: all vehicles, whether muscle-powered or engine powered, propel the human body faster than it can go by itself and that causes the body to be exposed to forces in a crash that it was never designed to handle.

Handling these kinds of personal injury cases require knowledge of liability law (Illinois Motor Vehicle Code, local Municipal Codes, and possible Federal trucking law and regulations). But they also require skill and knowledge of a broad base of medicine to handle proof of the injury aspects of the case.

Insurance Is Involved

In every motor vehicle crash case, insurance companies call the shots. They decide wheether to settle your car accident, or go to trial.  If they make an offer, they decdied what to offer.  And their business intersts are to not pay and to beat your claim.

And, insurance companies these days do everything in their power to defeat an injured person’s claim right from the beginning, before the injured person knows their rights. They do things like take recorded statements from witnesses and injured people before they know their rights and get injured people to sign papers before the injured person knows what is at stake.

Doesn't it make sense to have someone who knows how all of this work on your side if you have been hurt in an accident?
