With each new year comes new resolutions and opportunities for you, your families, and friends. One of your most important New Year’s resolutions should be to take some active steps to avoid sustaining new accidents and injuries. For example, you should be aware of your driving habits, make sure that your premises are safe, and take caution when operating certain products. 

In some instances, however, no matter how safe you are and no matter how many precautions you take, accidents still happen, and injuries still occur. When those accidents and injuries occur because of another person’s carelessness, recklessness, or negligence, then you may be able to file a claim or a lawsuit against the negligent individual.

The Chicago personal injury lawyers at Malman Law can assist you with filing bringing a legal cause of action or filing a lawsuit against an at-fault individual. Give us a call today at (312) 629-0099 or contact us online to learn more about how we could assist you throughout the process. 

Avoid Negligent Driving Habits

One safety resolution for the new year should be to practice good and safe driving habits at all times. Safe driving habits include all of the following:

  1. Always being aware of your surroundings and frequently look in your side and rearview mirrors
  2. Practicing safe driving by obeying all traffic laws and regulations, especially with regard to speed limits, traffic signs, warning signs, and turn signal use
  3. Refraining from distracted driving and texting while driving (i.e., using an electronic or cellular device that does not have a hands-free option for the car)

If you are injured in a motor vehicle collision that was caused by someone else’s negligence, a Chicago personal injury lawyer can assist by filing a claim or lawsuit against the at-fault driver. 

Unsafe Premises

A good New Year’s resolution for premises owners is to take some time to inspect their properties and make all of the necessary repairs and updates, if necessary. Premises owners owe a duty to business guests and other visitors to ensure that their properties are safe from hazards at all times. They also have a duty to make reasonable efforts to correct any known dangers – or to at least warn others about them. Finally, premises owners have a duty to ensure that their premises are reasonably safe and secure for the benefit of all business customers. 

If you have been injured on someone else’s property because of a hazard or other premises defect, then you may be able to assert a legal cause of action against the property owner. 

Defective Products

When using a new product, it is always important to read the instructions carefully and observe all of the necessary safety precautions. Even still, new products sometimes malfunction due to a product defect. When this happens, and you suffer an injury, you may be able to bring a legal claim against the manufacturer of the defective product.
