Legal Help For Elders Hurt in Car Accidents

 Posted on June 15, 2024 in Car Accidents

IL injury lawyerCar accidents can be particularly devastating to elderly people. Elders are more likely to suffer serious injuries in car crashes that younger people might have walked away from. As people age, their bodies become more vulnerable to injuries as their bones lose strength and density. This means that aging adults are more likely to suffer traumatic brain injuries as their skulls are less able to protect the brain or injuries to internal organs as the rib cage and chest plate become more likely to break upon impact. Elders often have a special set of concerns after a car accident. If you are an older adult who has been hurt by a negligent driver, you need a Glenview, IL personal injury lawyer who is experienced in representing injured elders.

Recovering Compensation After an Elder Falls

 Posted on June 06, 2024 in Personal Injury

IL injury lawyerWhile slipping or tripping and falling can injure a person of any age, falls are particularly serious in older adults. A person’s bones become more fragile as he or she ages, making seniors far more prone to serious injuries after even a minor fall. Elders are also less able to heal after a broken bone, concussion, or other injury. While a younger adult is likely to have no lingering effects from a broken bone after the cast comes off six weeks later, an elderly person may still experience pain, stiffness, and difficulty moving or using the affected body part for a long time. If you were injured by falling while in a business or on another party’s premises, a Glenview, IL personal injury attorney may be able to help you recover compensation.

Questions of Liability in an Illinois Rideshare Accident

 Posted on April 09, 2024 in Car Accidents

IL injury lawyerIn every car accident, there is at least one at-fault party who is liable for the crash. Maybe the driver drove recklessly, drove under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or violated traffic rules, or maybe some car parts malfunctioned due to improper car maintenance that caused the accident. Either way, when someone is at fault, he or she is responsible for covering the costs of any bodily, property, and other damages caused by the accident.

When an individual is responsible for an accident, they need to pay for the resulting damages. When the driver who is at fault was employed at the time of the accident, their employer’s insurance company will generally be the entity that covers the costs of damages.

If you were hit by a rideshare vehicle in an accident that was their fault, speak with a qualified Glenview, IL personal injury attorney to understand how to proceed.
