Common Types of Car Accidents
Collisions with Distracted Drivers
A growing number of motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians in the greater Chicago area are injured in accidents caused by a driver who was distracted by their cellphone. Our car accident lawyers can gather evidence to prove the other driver was paying attention to their phone instead of the road in order to hold them accountable for your medical bills and other losses.
The size of tractor-trailers, delivery vehicles, and other heavy vehicles means that an accident between a passenger vehicle and a big truck often result in serious injury. These accidents can be the result of negligence on the part of the truck driver, the owner of the company, the manufacturer of the truck, or a combination of parties. The injury lawyers at Rubin & Machado will carefully investigate your case to determine who is responsible for your losses.
An accident with a bus is similar to a truck accident in that the sheer size of the vehicle means the likelihood of someone suffering a serious injury is significantly increased. There are also added layers of legal complexity depending on whether the bus is privately owned and operated, part of a commercial transportation company, or a municipal bus. Our injury attorneys can thoroughly investigate a bus accident to determine all contributing factors in order to help you achieve justice for your injury.
When a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle, catastrophic injuries such as brain trauma and spinal cord injuries can easily result, having life-altering effects on the victim. If you or a loved one have been struck by a vehicle, our Chicago law firm strives to stand up for the rights of the injured. We will work tirelessly to hold the driver responsible for their reckless actions by pursuing just compensation on your behalf.
Accident-related injuries for motorcycle riders can permanently impact the victim's quality of life. Motorcycle riders are at a disadvantage on the road, as they do not have the protection offered by a car, yet are traveling at speed with traffic. That means a slight misjudgment by a driver can spell disaster for a motorcycle rider. The motorcycle injury lawyers at Rubin & Machado, Ltd., will handle everything so that injured motorcycle riders can focus on their recovery.
An injury sustained in an accident with a drunk driver adds insult to injury. Someone who chooses to operate a motor vehicle under the influence needs to be held responsible for their negligence. Our car accident lawyers can advocate for your rights by holding drunk drivers accountable for their actions. Additionally, Illinois has a dram shop law that holds establishments responsible if they provided the alcohol to an intoxicated individual that leads to an accident. Our attorneys will pursue every avenue for compensation when we take a DUI accident case.
