If you get in a car accident that results in serious injury, you might wonder who pays for medical bills after a car accident. You are responsible for ensuring the bills are paid when you seek medical treatment. However, financial recovery is a combination of your funds, your health insurance, your auto insurance, the at-fault driver's insurance, and the at-fault driver themselves. This is particularly true if you hire an Illinois car accident attorney to assist with your claim.
There are many types of car accident injuries that victims suffer. These injuries range in severity, and heavily influence the value of a car accident claim. More severe injuries can increase a victim’s losses, and have a long-term effect on his or her life. It’s important to be aware of the impact of car accident injuries and what kind of compensation those injuries qualify for when starting a claim. 
Car accident settlement amounts depend on factors such as the insurance coverage held by the motorists involved, liability, and the severity of the injuries and property damage. However, other factors may also play a role. For example, punitive damages may be calculated in a settlement if the other party was acting recklessly and in conscious disregard to others.

Big Truck Accident Verdict – But Not in Chicago

Posted By:

A federal court awarded $7 million last month to the family of a truck driver who suffered a wrongful in a two truck accident when his truck was struck by another truck in northern Arkansas. This is another case of a driver who was driving longer hours than mandated by the U.S. Department of Transportation rules allowed and was clearly fatigued as shown by the evidence. To exacerbate the accident, the offending driver had a bad driving record and inadequate experience. These factors lead to him crossing into the oncoming lane of traffic and colliding with the decedents truck.
