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.

Pedestrian Accidents with Cabdrivers: Report Reckless Taxis to 311

Posted By:

Pedestrian Accidents with Cabdrivers; Everyone Should Report Reckless Cabbies by dialing 311

Cabdrivers were involved in 28 percent of pedestrian crashes finds a study commissioned by the City Department Transportation. Commissioner Gabe Klein said in a Chicago Tribune article of August 15, 2011 that the majority of taxi drivers in Chicago pose a public safety menace. He has vowed to implement strict reforms with the help of the Chicago Police Department and the Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection, which regulates the taxi industry. Pedestrians and other drivers can help by calling 311 to report reckless cab drivers.  Any cab driver receiving three or more complaints will be investigated.

While these reforms are welcomed, the attorneys at Grazian and Volpe (now Lloyd Miller Law) know that pedestrian behavior is a key to preventing pedestrian-vehicle crashes.  Most accidents are caused by drivers failing to yield to pedestrians despite laws and traffic signals requiring them to do so.  We know from our more than 25 years advocating for injured pedestrians that the pedestrian sustains the greatest personal injuries-regardless of whether or not they were obeying the laws and signals. We caution all our clients to be mindful of all traffic signals and laws to stay safe and avoid injury and hope that more will report reckless cab driver behavior to 311 to help the City of Chicago in its quest to keep pedestrians safe.
