Auto Accidents

No one ever plans to be involved in a car accident, but sadly, motor vehicle accidents happen every day on Illinois roads. If you suffer injuries in a car accident, you need the legal representation of an attorney who understands the pain you are going through and can help you get the compensation you need.

The attorneys at Saks, Robinson & Rittenberg, Ltd. understand that your car accident is as unique as you are and that your future can depend on the outcome of your case. We will work diligently to ensure that you get the compensation that you deserve.

Types of Motor Vehicle Accidents

Many different types of car accidents can occur. These include rear-end accidents, head-on collisions, and T-bone crashes, to name a few. Regardless of the kind of accident, we will investigate to determine who is at fault for your injuries. Was it a distracted driver, a defective tire, a poorly designed seatbelt, or poor road conditions? There could be more than one party responsible for your injuries, and we will determine who is at fault.

Our firm has experience in handling a variety of complex vehicle accident claims. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Car accidents: These have many causes but may involve reckless acts such as drunk driving or speeding. Accidents can be particularly severe if they happen at a high speed.
  • Truck accidents: These often involve complex rules and regulations because of the involvement of a commercial business. Truck accidents can also be catastrophic.
  • Passenger accidents: When a passenger is injured, it can be especially difficult. They are not in control of the vehicle, but still suffer injuries. Our attorneys know how to handle these special accidents, including those that occur on mass transit.
  • Bicycle accidents: Establishing who is at fault for a bicycle accident can be challenging. Our firm has extensive experience handling these accidents and can help riders hold any negligent parties responsible for the harm they caused.
  • Motorcycle accidents: Accidents that occur between a motorcycle and other vehicle are often the result of negligence by the car driver. These accidents also often result in significant injuries.
  • Pedestrian accidents: When a pedestrian is involved in a car accident, they have no protection against injuries. Unlike the vehicle driver, there is no seatbelt or airbag to protect them. This means that a pedestrian almost always suffers the most significant injuries in a car-pedestrian accident.

Statute of Limitations

When you have suffered injuries in a car accident, there is a time limit, or statute of limitations, for filing a lawsuit against the party responsible for your injuries. In Illinois, this time limit is two years. However, in certain situations, the time limit can be more or less. An experienced car accident attorney can help you understand the statute of limitations for your case.
