Illinois is an “at-fault” state, meaning that the person who is at fault for the accident must compensate the other injured party for damages. You can recover damages as long as you are not more than 50% at fault for the collision.
However, it is up to an insurance evaluator, and sometimes eventually a judge, to determine each driver’s percentage of fault. Determining liability is complicated, and an insurance evaluator, or judge, is experienced in reviewing the facts and better assessing the situation.
According to Illinois law, drivers are required to have the following minimum coverage:
Often, insurance limits are not enough to cover someone’s injuries or the damage sustained to their vehicle. It is important to consult an attorney in any car crash which results in injury or property damage.
