Common Factors in Driver-Caused Car Accidents
In Missouri and Illinois, a lawsuit may be filed when one driver’s negligence has caused or contributed to a car accident. Drivers may be careless or negligent in many different ways. Speeding and drunk driving are two significant causes of car accidents in Missouri and Illinois. Some other causes include:
- Talking on a cell phone
- Excessive speed
- Driving too fast for weather conditions
- Aggressive driving
- Road rage
- Street racing
The victim of a car accident who is thinking of filing suit against another driver, the owner of the vehicle or an employer must remember that time limits apply and that they vary by state. To protect your claim and to preserve important evidence that will be needed to prove liability, it is important that you contact the St. Louis car accident lawyers of the Zevan and Davidson Law Firm to discuss your case as soon as possible.
Property Conditions Leading to Car Accidents
Some car accidents are the result not of careless driving but instead of improper maintenance or poor condition of roadways or property, such as:
- Confusing signs
- Obstructed views
- Defective roadway design
- Lack of traffic signals
- Defective road maintenance
When the condition of a road or property may have caused or contributed to a car accident, the owner of the property — often a government entity such as a city, county or state — may be held responsible. However, the time in which a claim may be lodged against a government entity is often extremely limited. Therefore, it is important to contact the St. Louis car accident lawyers of Zevan and Davidson to discuss your case as soon as possible.
How Much Money Can I Expect to Receive in a Car Accident Lawsuit?
The amount of compensation that may be obtained through a lawsuit varies. The final award will depend on the severity of the victim’s injuries, the amount of lost wages, the medical bills that have been incurred and how responsibility for the car accident is calculated.
Under both Missouri and Illinois law, auto accident injury victims may seek compensation for:
- Past and future medical bills and healthcare expenses
- The costs of long-term nursing care
- Wages lost as a result of another’s negligence
- The pain and suffering caused by the intentional or negligent act of a careless person
