Do personal injury cases go to trial? If you are unable to reach a settlement agreement with the at fault party, your personal injury case may go to trial. Personal injury cases usually involve either a formal lawsuit or an informal settlement. In the former, the plaintiff files a lawsuit against the other party for compensation.
If you are unsure about when to hire a personal injury lawyer, hire one as soon as possible after you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else's negligence or wrongdoing. A personal injury lawyer can assist you in seeking compensation for your injuries and can also help protect your best interests against insurance companies who may try to avoid paying fair compensation for your injuries and damages.
“What does a personal injury lawyer do?” is a question you may ask yourself when you’re wondering whether seeking legal representation is in your best interests. From gathering evidence and valuing your claim to creating a suitable legal strategy for pursuing maximum compensation and representing you in court, a personal injury lawyer’s services help get the best possible outcome for your claim.
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.

Car Accidents: Is a Tire Blow-Out a Foreseeable Event or Not?

Car Accidents Is a Tire Blow-Out a Foreseeable Event or Not

Car Accidents: Is a tire blow-out a foreseeable event or not? Manufacturers know that tire tread will wear with proper use and at some point fail if not serviced properly and replaced when the warranty and/or the intended period of use has expired. It is the duty of the tire owner to follow the manufacturers’ recommendations for maintenance, repair and replacement and personal injuries from car accidents resulting from owner neglect will not be compensable by the manufacturer of the tires.

Car Accidents Is a Tire Blow-Out a Foreseeable Event or Not

But what is the tire blow-out was not foreseeable? Tire tread separation can certainly be the manufacturer’s fault when they are caused by bonding problems in the manufacturing process, contaminants introduced into the tire during the tire making process, under-vulcanized, old ingredients, improperly sized components or something as random as air trapped between the layers of the tire during the manufacturing process.

The results can be catastrophic resulting in collisions and in many cases, rollovers. In one case a rear tire tread separation caused the vehicle to go out of control. The vehicle rolled over resulting in the deaths of the two passengers who were killed despite being properly seat belted.
