Car accidents can be scary, especially when one occurs on the busy roads of Chicago. Although some car accidents are more severe than others, all accidents should be taken seriously and handled with the same level of care. Even if your car accident is minor, you’ll likely suffer financial loss from the wreck and need help to cover bills for medical expenses or property damage.
If your insurance won’t cover your losses, suing the liable party in your accident can be the best way to avoid financial concerns. A Chicago car accident lawyer from Lane & Lane, LLC can assess the severity of your accident and provide advice on how best to move forward.
Was Negligence Involved?
As long as negligence was involved in your car accident, you’ll likely have grounds for a lawsuit. Negligence can be a factor in your accident if a driver collided with you because they were speeding or distracted behind the wheel.
It’s also possible that negligence was a factor in your wreck if your car malfunctioned or you hit a roadway hazard. A car malfunction can be the fault of the car manufacturer. A roadway hazard may be the fault of a government entity responsible for ensuring safe roads.
What Damages Did You Suffer?
If you suffered damages in your car accident, whether financial or non-financial, you can sue the liable party for compensation. Economic damages may include medical expenses, lost wages from missing work, or property damage. Non-economic damages may include scarring and disfigurement or pain and suffering.
