No-Doubt Liability in Auto Accident Cases

In certain car accident cases, some drivers are considered at-fault 99% of the time. These cases are often called "no doubt" liability cases. Two such instances that fall into this category are: rear end collisions and left-turn accidents.

Illinois Rules of the Road are largely responsible for the "no-doubt" designation in these cases. And as insurers are less likely to argue fault in these cases, it becomes all the more necessary to have experienced Counsel on your side to negotiate a fair and equitable settlement for injuries and losses.

Car Accidents – Vehicle Value

If you've been physically injured as a result of a car accident where another driver is at fault, damages to your vehicle may be the last thing on your mind. Medical costs and recovery, along with loss of employment and potential emotional trauma are all, often times, more than one individual can handle at any given time. Yet, once immediate medical care is sought, it is also very important to address the damage sustained by your vehicle so that value can be assessed immediately. In addition to the Illinois Statute of Limitations in car accident cases, you should also consider the amount of time it may take to file a claim for vehicle damages, whether that is with the at-fault driver's insurer or your own (as in the case of uninsured drivers). There are several considerations that come into play when one suffers vehicle damage in a car accident where another driver is at fault.

Uninsured and Under-insured Motorist Issues

Automobile accidents cause an unbelievable amount of distress for a driver and when you’re the victim of a car accident and the responsible party is without adequate car insurance, recovering damages can be a daunting task.

Should the responsible party be insured yet lack the appropriate amount of insurance to compensate you for damages in your case, they are deemed under-insured. When it can be demonstrated that the under-insured driver is responsible for damages and injuries, the claimant typically files a claim against that party’s insurance for the maximum allowable amount. The balance is then typically sought from the victim’s own insurer if they have uninsured/under-insured motorist coverage.
