Chicago Inattentive Driving Accident Attorneys

Chicago Substandard Medical Care Attorneys

Accidents caused by cell phone use while driving continue to happen – even despite the fact that Illinois recently prohibited the use of hand-held cell phones while driving in a school zone or highway construction zone and several other cities, including Chicago, Evanston and Winnetka, have banned the use of hand-held cell phones while driving all together.

Illinois law also prohibits sending or reading text messages and emails while driving anywhere within the state. The Illinois inattentive driving accident attorneys at Ankin Law are skilled attorneys with significant experience representing victims of motor vehicle accidents, including those caused by cell phone use and inattentive driving, as well as alcohol-related accidents, teenager driver accidents, and hit and run accidents.

Even when drivers use a hands-free cell phone while driving and both hands are on the wheel, talking on a cell phone alone distracts a driver and can lead to accidents caused by inattentive driving. According to the National Highway and Transportation Safety Association, Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, drivers that use cell phones are four times more likely to get into auto accidents that result in injuries.

At Ankin Law, our skilled Illinois auto accident attorneys have vast legal knowledge regarding auto accident lawsuits, combined with considerable experience representing clients in personal injury lawsuits, which allows us to effectively advocate on behalf of our clients. We are conversant in the various legal standards for negligence claims, including claims involving inattentive driving such as cell phone use while driving. We will communicate and negotiate with any insurance companies involved and aggressively litigate your claim, if necessary, to obtain the compensation you deserve.

Contact the experienced Chicago cell phone auto accident attorneys at Ankin Law today to schedule your free consultation to discuss the legal remedies for your cell phone auto accident.

How Long After a Car Accident Can You Claim an Injury?

Victims typically have two years from the date of the accident to file a car accident lawsuit or claim for their injuries. Illinois is on the list of “fault” states. When a car accident is caused by the negligence of another driver, victims may seek compensation against that party for any financial and emotional costs of the injuries they sustained.
