How do car accidents happen? What causes them? These might sound like simple questions. But the answers can be much more complicated than you might think. By contacting an experienced Central Illinois car accident lawyer, you will take one of the first steps toward getting justice.

Whatever type of Illinois auto accident you’re dealing with, we want to help you. At Hall, Rustom & Fritz, our experienced, honest, dedicated lawyers have worked with numerous people to help them get back on their feet after their serious auto accident.

Typical root causes of car accidents in Illinois

Some of the more common causes of car accidents include:

  • Distracted driving, including drivers who text or use a cellphone while driving
  • Drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving, including failing to observe traffic signals or erratically changing lanes
  • Falling asleep at the wheel

Such cases might seem straightforward. But often, many drivers will try to claim they did nothing wrong even if they clearly caused the accident. Holding people accountable for such behavior can be harder than you think. That’s why we work tirelessly to gather evidence to support your case.

We routinely visit the scene of the accident, interview witnesses and review police reports, hospital records and any other documents to help build a stronger case. We do all this work with one goal in mind: to get you the compensation you rightfully deserve.
