Who Is At Fault?In Illinois, car accident cases are based on a fault system, which means victims have to prove the other driver was at fault and file for damages with their insurance company. Additionally, drivers who run through stop signs without stopping, drive while drunk, drive over the speed limit and commit other traffic violations can also be held liable for potential accidents. In other words, if you are behind the wheel, you can be held liable for a car accident if you are a negligent driver. Therefore, each driver has to have insurance to cover liabilities. If you are involved in an accident and can prove the other driver was at fault, you can claim damages for:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Rental cars
- Car repairs and/or replacement
- Loss of companionship
