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.

Drunk Driving Car Accidents In Illinois Can Mean a Big Verdict

Posted By:

Drunk Driving Car Accidents can mean a big verdict for the plaintiff. A jury awarded more than $11.8 million last month to a driver whose car was rear-ended by a repeat drunk driver. The plaintiff developed a painful and debilitating nerve condition as a result of the crash that has confined him to a wheelchair. Plaintiff was stopped at an intersection when the drunk driver hit him from behind and then fled the scene. When finally apprehended she failed two field sobriety tests and was booked for a DUI. The drunk driver had a long history of DUIs and was convicted of another about a week after she rear-ended the plaintiff.

Certainly, it is better to avoid car accidents but it is especially difficult when a rear end collision is involved, more so when it is one of the thousand United States drunk driving accidents that occur each year. Juries now seem favorable to granting large verdicts where intoxication appears to be the cause of the accident, especially with repeat offenders. Hopefully, this is another method that these problem drivers can be deterred from mixing drinking and driving.
