Peoria Car Accident Attorneys

You do your research before buying your car so that you can buy one with an excellent safety rating. You keep your tires inflated and otherwise maintain your vehicle. When you get in your car, you buckle your seatbelt. Still, you are involved in an accident and sustain injuries. Unfortunately, even when you take every possible precaution, somethings are beyond your control. However, you do have the option to seek financial recovery through the legal system with the help of our experienced Peoria car accident attorneys.

  • Distracted driving: The primary cause of car accidents is distracted driving. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that distracted driving claimed 2,841 lives in 2018 alone. This includes 1,730 drivers, 605 passengers, 400 pedestrians, and 77 bicyclists. The most common causes of distracted driving are rubbernecking, texting, and the presence of others in the vehicle.
  • Driver fatigue: Many drivers decide to save time and drive even when they know they are tired. According to the NHTSA, nearly 800 lives were lost in 2017 due to drowsy driving. These accidents happen most frequently between midnight and 6 a.m., or in the late afternoon.
  • Intoxicated driving: Drinking and using drugs has a substantial impact on the abilities of a driver. In fact, 29 people die every day as a result of drunk driving, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC). They also report that drivers under the influence of marijuana are about 25 percent more likely to be involved in a car accident.
  • Speeding: Speeding was a factor in 26 percent of all traffic mortalities in 2018, killing 9,378, or an average of more than 25 individuals each day. Driving at increased speeds increases the time it takes to bring a vehicle to a stop and increases the damage and injuries.

Taking steps to avoid situations that will put you in one of these predicaments can significantly decrease your odds of being involved in a motor vehicle accident. If, by chance, you have been involved in an automobile crash in Illinois, it is imperative to seek reputable and experienced Peoria car accident lawyers for advice.

Types of Damages in a Car Accident Claim

Damages are your losses as a result of the car accident. Damages are used to determine what you are owed compensation for and how much compensation you should receive. When you meet with well-versed Peoria car accident lawyers to discuss your accident claim, they can estimate how much your claim might be worth based on your damages.
Damages can be economic or non-economic. Economic damages are also known as special damages. They include such losses as:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Prescriptions
  • Physical therapy
  • Chiropractic care
  • Surgery
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Property damage

These types of damages are easy to calculate. On the other hand, non-economic damages can be challenging to assign a value to. They are evaluated differently to determine a monetary value that the victim should receive, as there are no records that can assess their value. Also known as general damages, they are subjective and include things like:

Seasoned Peoria car accident attorneys can help you account for all of your damages in your accident claim. They will fight for fair compensation for every damage you suffer. If your claim settles outside of court, your attorney can use your damages to maximize the value of your claim. If your case does end up in court, your attorney will convey your damages and their impact on your life to the jury to help ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

Contact Seasoned Peoria Car Accident Attorneys

Despite taking all the precautions to prevent car accidents, they do still happen. When they happen out of the carelessness of another driver, you should not have to pay for your losses. Instead, the at-fault party should compensate you for them.
Were you recently injured in a car accident? The seasoned Peoria car accident attorneys at Malman Law can help you get the compensation you deserve for your damages. We can help determine whether you have grounds for a personal injury claim and who the negligent party is in your case.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
