Common Types Of Motor Vehicle Accidents
Common types of motor vehicle accidents in Illinois include:
- Car crashes: A car collides with another vehicle or object.
- Semi-truck accidents: When a semi-truck collides with another vehicle, the impacts are often devastating for the smaller car, leading to severe accidents and fatalities.
- Rideshare accidents: A crash involving services such as Uber and Lyft.
- Bicycle accidents: Often, people fail to yield to bicyclists or follow laws meant to protect them, leading to an accident.
- Pedestrian accidents: These serious accidents involve a pedestrian, often walking across the street, being hit by a motor vehicle.

What Is The Statute Of Limitations For Motor Vehicle Accident Cases In Illinois?
In Illinois, you must file your motor vehicle accident injury claim within two years of the date of the accident. Failing to file by this deadline can result in losing your right to file at all. It is vital that you contact an attorney as soon as possible after your accident to get started on your case right away.
You Were Injured In A Chicago Car Accident That Wasn’t Your Fault, What Do You Do?
Even if you drove carefully and followed every law and precaution, avoiding someone else’s negligence or recklessness can be difficult. When an accident is not your fault, you may file a lawsuit against the at-fault party to obtain compensation for your suffering.
How To Prove You Were Not At Fault For A Chicago Car Crash
One of the most important steps you can take immediately after an accident is to obtain evidence of the accident scene. This includes taking photos and videos of your vehicle, surroundings, injuries, and other relevant information. When you work with one of our personal injury attorneys, we will help you gather evidence to prove that the other party was at fault. For example, we can obtain security recordings from nearby businesses and speak to witnesses who may have seen the accident happen.
