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.
If you were injured in a trucking accident in Chicago, Berwyn, Oak Lawn, Cicero, or a nearby community, call the injury attorneys at Lloyd Miller Law for a free consultation.

More Car Accident Headaches for Illinois Drivers!

Posted By:

Another reason to avoid a car accident!  Illinois lawmakers amended the Illinois Vehicle Code that now gives Illinois drivers more duties and responsibilities to the passengers in their vehicles. Illinois drivers are now required  to properly adjust and fasten seat belts for passengers who are unable to do it themselves. A driver transporting a passenger who is unable to properly adjust and fasten their safety belt due to illness, infirmity or age must secure the passenger or face a ticket and fine. More concerning for the driver may be the added liability should the driver and passenger become involved in a car accident and the passenger suffers aggravated personal injury because the driver did not properly adjust and fasten the passenger’s safety belt. Be sure to let your Chicago Injury attorney know the status of all passengers involved in the auto accident and be aware of your duties as a driver.

Passengers should also be aware of this amendment and ask that the driver perform these safety functions. If not, passengers should make their car accident attorney aware of their status and the fact that the driver did not assure their safety thus contributing to the passenger’s injuries in the vehicle collision.
