In handling a personal injury case arising from a car crash, one of the most crucial steps is determining the cause of the accident. If your accident was the result of negligence on the part of another driver or another party, you have the right to pursue fair and just compensation for your losses.
At Northern Illinois Injury Attorneys, we have the investigative resources to uncover the root causes of car accidents and identify the parties responsible for our clients’ injuries. We provide exceptional personal injury representation to clients throughout northern Illinois.
Some of the most common causes of car accidents include:
- Distracted driving: Texting and other forms of distracted driving are an epidemic on area roads. In some cases, it may be appropriate to investigate text transcripts, cellphone calling records and other information to determine if a driver’s multitasking caused a serious injury or death.
- Bad driving: Some drivers are just bad and shouldn’t be on the road. They don’t know, are impaired or don’t care enough to obey traffic laws. They are inattentive and selfish. All too often, their behavior behind the wheel has tragic results.
- Faulty auto parts: Sometimes the responsible party is not on the road at all, but rather a person or company responsible for the design or manufacture of the vehicle. When faulty brakes, steering wheel or other auto components are to blame for an accident, we can pursue compensation from auto manufacturers, distributors and other responsible parties.
