Attorney for Auto Crash Injuries in Chicago and Cook County

Motor vehicle collisions can happen unexpectedly, and for many accident victims, a crash that happened through no fault of their own can leave them with long-lasting injuries or even permanent disabilities. In these cases, it may be necessary to take legal action to hold a negligent driver responsible for the harm they have caused.

When dealing with car accident injuries, you need a skilled attorney who will help you understand your best options for receiving the compensation you need. At The Law Offices of David A. Kadzai, LLC, we have more than 10 years of experience representing clients in personal injury cases, and we have a record of success in obtaining verdicts and settlements that fully address the damages our clients have suffered.

Causes of Auto Accidents

Crashes can occur for a wide variety of reasons, and many of them involve negligence on the part of another driver. Some common reasons why accidents take place include:

  • Failure to follow traffic laws - People who drive above the speed limit may be unable to safely control their vehicle, causing them to collide with other cars. Tailgating can lead to rear-end accidents, and not following the rules of the road when making turns, changing lanes, or merging can cause dangerous collisions, especially when a vehicle is traveling at a high speed.
  • Impaired driving - Driving while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs can be very dangerous, since it will affect a person's judgment, motor control, vision, and reaction time. Driving while intoxicated by marijuana is also a concern, since as of January 1, 2020, cannabis is legal for recreational and medical use in Illinois.
  • Distracted driving - There are a wide variety of distractions that can take a driver's attention away from operating their vehicle safely. Those who choose to make phone calls, send text messages, watch videos, play games, or browse websites while driving put everyone around them on the road at risk of injury.
  • Improper vehicle maintenance - A person may be responsible for an accident that occurred because they did not ensure that their car was safe to drive. For example, if a driver did not replace worn tires or service their vehicle's brakes, the failure of these safety systems may have led to a collision.
  • Dangerous roads or highways - There are usually a large number of roads that are under construction in the Chicago area, as well as a variety of high-traffic areas that require drivers to take extra care. Failure to take the proper safety measures when driving in these areas can lead to dangerous accidents.
  • Inclement weather - Snow, ice, rain, and high winds can increase the risks of accidents. Drivers who fail to account for conditions on the road may cause serious injuries to others in a collision.
