What is Your Case Worth?
If you or a loved one has been in an accident involving a large truck, we at Agruss Law Firm are here for you every step of the way to ensure that your rights are protected and you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses, and this includes working with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure a favorable settlement.
Auto accident cases in Illinois depend on proving the other party’s “negligence,” meaning that the other party failed to act reasonably or deliberately acted unreasonably in a way that posed a risk to others and resulted in injuries and/or losses. There are four components of negligence: first, the defendant owed a “duty of care” to you, the plaintiff; second, the defendant breached that duty of care; third, this breach directly resulted in your injuries; and fourth, your injuries resulted in economic and/or non-economic damages.
It is difficult to determine in advance what your truck accident case may be worth, as this depends on the severity of the accident and resulting injuries, the extent of vehicle/property damage, and who is legally liable for the accident, be it the truck driver, trucking company, or even the truck’s manufacturer; it also depends on whether a settlement is reached before a trial by jury is necessary. Here are some findings about truck accident cases in Cook County and throughout Illinois:
- Median compensation for truck accident cases in Illinois is between $50,000 and $60,000;
- An estimated 54% of truck accident cases in Illinois, and 45% in Cook County, receive less than $100,000 in compensation;
- An estimated 18% of all truck accident cases in Illinois, and 28% in Cook County, receive compensation of more than $1 million.
