DuPage County Accident Defense Attorneys

Chicago Personal Injury Lawyers for Motor Vehicle, Bike, and Pedestrian Accidents

Most people travel by car, bicycle, or sidewalk nearly every day. Any time you leave your home and go somewhere, there is some risk of personal injury. Motor vehicles are inherently dangerous, even when everyone acts responsibly. If you have the misfortune of being involved in an accident, you may face a lawsuit. Many who are injured in these accidents seek to blame someone. This often means they will file a lawsuit against any other party involved.

At SpyratosDavis LLC, we understand that not every accident could have been prevented. Our attorneys will work to defend your actions, and, to the extent possible, ensure that you are not held liable for an accident that was not entirely your fault. In any event, we will provide a defense and take steps to ensure that any compensation awarded to the alleged injured party will be fair and reasonable.

Motor Vehicle Accident Attorneys

Motor vehicle accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, and they are not always preventable, even if every driver involved is being careful and aware. The problem is that the roads, the weather, and third parties are unpredictable. We can assist with all types of car accidents and transportation accidents, such as:

  • Rear-end collisions - Typically the driver in back will receive a ticket; however, there are some exceptions. For example, the driver in front may have been missing taillights, or they may have braked suddenly without warning, contributing to the accident.
  • T-bone accidents - T-bone collisions often occur when there is confusion at an intersection, such as when it is unclear which driver had the right-of-way.
  • Defective auto parts - When an auto part fails, the driver may lose control of their vehicle and hit others.

Bicycle Accident Lawyer in Lisle

Unlike cars, bicycles offer very little protection in the event of a crash. It is fairly common for bicycle riders to sustain very serious and even catastrophic injuries when they are hit by a car. This often means that cyclists will demand a large amount of compensation. While "careless driving" is often blamed for these collisions, not enough is said about careless cycling. Cyclists are known for ignoring traffic signals and putting themselves at risk.

DuPage County Pedestrian Accidents Attorney

It can be difficult for drivers and pedestrians to share the road. Just as drivers must yield to pedestrians in certain instances, like when the pedestrian is in a crosswalk, pedestrians also have certain responsibilities to protect their own safety. Not all pedestrian accidents are the fault of the driver. Pedestrians may attempt to cross without a signal, outside of a crosswalk, or in the middle of a block. Additionally, a lack of reflective clothing at night may make a pedestrian impossible to see, especially with minimal lighting.

Top 3 Careless Driving Allegations in DuPage County

There are a few common types of allegations auto accident plaintiffs make. Three of the most common types of negligent driving allegations we see include:

  • Distraction - People are often distracted by other drivers, events outside the vehicle, or people or cell phones in the car.
  • Failure to obey traffic signals - Witnesses and cameras are often important when the plaintiff alleges that the other vehicle ran a red light, failed to yield, or did not slow down in response to signage. The evidence may contradict what the plaintiff says.
  • Intoxication - It is not uncommon for plaintiffs to allege the defendant was under the influence without admissible evidence. Unless there is evidence of intoxication, such as an arrest for DUI, it may be unlikely this claim will succeed.

We will perform a skilled investigation to determine what may have happened. Our attorneys will be prepared to take your case to trial if necessary in order to achieve the best possible result for you.
