Illinois Automobile Frequently Asked Questions

It is important to understand the legal process and how it pertains to cases involving auto accidents. The litigation and lawsuit process can be quite complicated and usually differs on a case-to-case basis. Please read on for additional information regarding Illinois car accident lawsuits.

Q: Will I be compensated if I am in an auto accident?

Not necessarily. While some people believe that they will be compensated if they are in an automobile accident no matter what the circumstances may be and regardless of the seriousness of their injuries, not all crashes warrant a lawsuit. Speaking with an attorney will help you with your auto accident lawsuit in Illinois since every case is different.

Q: Will my black box support my case?

It may or may not. The important thing to understand is that the black box in your car is nothing like the black box on an airplane. The device is designed to record information concerning your speed, brakes, engine, and driver seatbelt. Ultimately, a skilled attorney and wise litigation strategies are your best support.

Q: If a police officer gives me a speeding ticket and I sign it, have I admitted guilt?

No. By signing the ticket you have only acknowledged that you received a notice to appear in court. You have the right to contest the ticket in court.

Q: Do I even need a lawyer to settle my car accident lawsuit in Illinois?

You will undoubtedly need a lawyer to help you with your lawsuit or you may not get the right compensation. On any level, the legal process can be very complex. A qualified lawyer can guide through the pitfalls.

Q: I need to pay for getting my car fixed and my medical bills. How can I hire a lawyer?
