Kane County Car Accidents

As a car accident attorney practicing in Kane County and the Fox Valley region, injury attorney John J. Malm is focused on helping individuals and families who have suffered an injury or loss due to a car accident, whether by seeking to maximize insurance settlements or to file law suits in the Kane County Circuit Court to recover monetary damages for injuries suffered as a result of a motor vehicle accident, car accident, truck accident, pedestrian accident or bike accident.

An injury claim or lawsuit in Kane County may arise due to a car accident or motor vehicle accident resulting from driver carelessness or negligence. Evidence of negligence can be shown by driver distraction, improper use of a cell phone or “texting”, unsafe driving inside a construction zone, improper or unsafe lane usage, failure to yield right of way, traveling at excessive speed, driving too fast for conditions, failing to obey a traffic control device, roadway or pavement defects, visual obstructions on or near the roadway, missing or defective signage or traffic control devices, improper road maintenance, and weather related conditions may be introduced to show that the striking motorist was careless or negligent. Throughout Kane County, such occurrences have been documented to cause rear end, head on, side impact and intersection collisions. In some instances, tire failure, brake failure or improper maintenance, as well as other product defects contribute to the cause of such accidents. In some instances, driver intoxication or DUI may also be a contributing factor. The specific causes and contributing causes of Kane County accidents are documented in the Illinois Crash Report accompanying each documented collision. A copy of the Illinois Traffic Crash Report can be obtained by submitting a request, pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, to the investigating police department or agency and submitting the required fee (usually $5.00 to $10.00 each).
