Is Illinois a No Fault State for Car Accidents?
Auto Injury Claims Attorney in Chicago With Over 45 Years of Combined Legal Experience
Here is how auto accident compensation is handled in the State of Illinois
In the State of Illinois, car accident claims are based on the “fault” of the person who is responsible for an collision. The “at fault” driver’s insurance carrier is typically responsible for paying out on the claim on behalf of their customer.
This is why it is critical that you have an experienced attorney to prove beyond all doubt, that the accident was not partially your fault.
At Stein & Shulman, LLC, we handle car accidents and accident-related personal injury cases exclusively. When our client is hurt and has sustained property damage, we work hard to fight for all of the monetary compensation that our client is legally owed. We prepare your case to the fullest and make sure that we are more than prepared to litigate your case and win.
Our law firm is based in Chicago, but our attorneys have represent accident and injury victims throughout the state of Illinois. We have represented clients in several types of auto accidents such as:
- Reckless drivers
- Drunk Drivers
- Distracted drivers
- Drugged drivers
- Aggressive drivers
- Red light runners
- Texting while driving drivers
- Speeding drivers
- Fatigued drivers
Accidents can be complex in nature. We have successfully represented clients in multi-car pile ups where finding and proving fault for the accident was very difficult. When a client is injured in a multi-car collision, Illinois car accident laws apply a comparative negligence standard. This means that each party to the accident is required to payout compensation based off of the percentage of his or her fault. Illinois employs a modified comparative negligence and that means if you are 50 percent or more at fault for causing the accident in Illinois, you are unable to recover any monetary compensation for your injuries or property damage.
