Cicero Personal Injury Lawyers

Any type of accidental injuries can be difficult to deal with, but when they are caused by someone else’s negligence, they can be that much more difficult and complicated. If you’ve been injured in an accident that happened due to the negligence of another party, you need the professional legal skills and guidance of an experienced Cicero personal injury lawyer in your corner. 

Personal Injury Claims

Personal injury claims come in many different varieties, but they are all based on a person or entity’s negligence – in one form or another – that causes someone else to be injured. Common types of personal injury claims include the following:

  • Car Accidents
  • Trucking Accidents
  • Dog Bites 
  • Wrongful Death (a personal injury case brought by the survivors of the victim involved)
  • Premises Liability (accidents that happen on properties that harbor unreasonable safety risks)
  • Accidents that Lead to Brain Injuries
  • Workers’ Compensation
  • Slip and Fall Accidents
  • Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

No matter what kind of accident leaves you injured, it is in you and your future’s best interest to pursue the compensation to which you are entitled – and a dedicated personal injury lawyer has the skills, resources, and commitment to help you with that.

Proving Negligence in Personal Injury Cases

When it comes to accidents that lead to personal injury claims, the type of negligence involved can vary considerably. There are, however, certain categories that typically apply to specific kinds of personal injury cases. For example, if you have been injured in a car accident, the at-fault driver’s negligence likely fits in one of the following classifications:

  • Impairment – Motorists are responsible for driving safely, and an important and obvious component of this responsibility is not getting behind the wheel when impaired by alcohol and/or drugs. There is simply no excuse for driving while impaired.
  • Distraction – Driving safely requires every motorist’s complete attention, and when motorists are distracted by anything other than this pursuit of safety, they endanger all who share the road. The smartphone is a star distraction that leaves many drivers unable to pay adequate attention to the road ahead, and that can end in tragedy.  
  • Exhaustion – When we’re tired, we tend to function less capably, and this doesn’t lend itself to safe driving practices. Drowsy drivers shouldn’t get behind the wheel in the first place.
  • Aggression – Aggressive drivers tend to be so dangerous that they’re easy to spot on the road, but are difficult to safely avoid. Aggressive drivers often combine multiple driving infractions on any given outing, and these can include speeding excessively, stopping or slowing down randomly, weaving in and out of lanes, passing on the shoulder, tailgating, attempting to engage other motorists with taunts and obscene gestures, and much more.
