Operating a motor vehicle is a privilege, not a right. What many people don’t realize is that when operating a motor vehicle, a driver owes a legal duty to other drivers on the road as well as to passengers in their vehicle and pedestrians. That duty is to operate the motor vehicle in a reasonably careful manner. Illinois is an at-fault tort state, meaning that if an injured person wishes to collect compensation for those injuries, he or she must prove that the driver who caused the injuries breached the duty to operate the motor vehicle with reasonable careful conduct under the circumstances and thus was legally negligent.

Under Illinois law, negligence is established by proving that: (1) The Defendant driver owed a legal duty to the injured Plaintiff, (2) that the Defendant driver breached that duty and (3) the breach of that legal duty caused the Plaintiff’s injuries. In defining the Defendant’s legal duty to the Plaintiff, the law will look primarily to the Illinois Motor Vehicle Code. The code establishes certain traffic safety rules with which the driver must comply. Additionally, in many instances, the court will examine what a reasonable person in the same or similar circumstances would have done.

Drivers have a legal responsibility to comply with the state laws regarding traffic safety, and when they fail to do so that conduct may be considered a breach of their legal duty, and it may satisfy the second element of a negligence claim. Several common examples of ways that drivers breach this duty include the failure to stop at a stop sign or red light, speeding or driving too fast for the particular road conditions present at the time, failing to maintain their vehicle in a lane of traffic or changing lanes when it is unsafe to do so, or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Finally, the Plaintiff must establish that it was the Defendant’s breach of duty, and not some other factor, that caused the Plaintiff’s injuries. Although it is often clear that an accident victim’s injuries were sustained as a result of the accident, this element may be contested, especially when the victim had a pre-existing condition or injury that he or she asserts was made worse by the accident.
