Motorcycle accidents: Illinois pedestrian killed after being hit

When a motorcyclist is involved in an accident that leads to injuries, many individuals may assume that the motorcycle operator was the one who was injured. However, if motorcycle accidents involve pedestrians, it is likely that those who are on foot are at risk of suffering the more serious injuries. Motorcycles are just as likely to inflict severe wounds on a pedestrian as other vehicles, and catastrophic results are not unheard of.

Illinois residents may want more rules to prevent truck accidents

Many individuals across the country are employed by the trucking industry. Individuals are able to earn their wages by traveling routes to make deliveries and perform other tasks. These employees also have certain regulations that they are required to follow in order to ensure their safety and the safety of other travelers. If drivers do not adhere to these regulations, truck accidents could result.

Violations could have led to Illinois workers' compensation need

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, or OSHA, often conducts inspections of facilities to ensure that the work spaces are free from serious hazards. They also make sure that workers have been trained to safely handle the risks they may face depending on their occupation. If an OSHA inspection uncovers safety violations, a company could face penalties and fines for putting workers at risk of suffering an injury and possibly needing workers' compensation.

Illinois accident leads to death, possible wrongful death claim

The causes of a serious accident may not always be known immediately after the situation takes place. Authorities associated with the incident may need to conduct a long-term investigation in order to ensure that they understand to the best of their ability what factors may have played a role in a fatal accident. Such an investigation could potentially lead to charges, and a fatal event could cause a victim's family to consider a wrongful death claim.

Life-threatening injuries stem from Illinois car accident

Many individuals may believe that young drivers are more likely to be involved in a serious accident due to their lack of experience. Because they are so young, many new drivers use vehicles that are owned by their parents, which could lead to the parents potentially being held liable for a car accident in which their children may have been involved. As a result, individuals who may have been seriously injured due to a car accident with a minor may wish to explore their legal options and the best paths for their possible case.

Hit-and-run crashes can complicate Illinois motorcycle accidents

When a driver involved in a crash leaves the scene of the accident, the investigation into the event can become more complicated for the authorities involved. Motorcycle accidents in which a driver flees the site can also increase in severity, as injured parties may not be able to receive the medical care they need as soon as if another driver had stayed and reported the accident. Luckily, in many cases such as this, authorities are able to locate the other driver involved.

Workers' compensation could stem from fatal Illinois explosion

When a workplace accident takes place, it is always the hope that no one is injured. Unfortunately, many accidents that occur on the job result in serious or even fatal injuries for one or more employees. In such a situation, the victims or their families may face financial hardships as a result of the accident. Luckily, workers' compensation may be available to help.

Family of Illinois accident victim may consider wrongful death

During holiday weekends, police departments typically increase their enforcement in hopes of lessening the likelihood of an accident taking place. This past Labor Day weekend was no exception, and police forces across the country had more individuals on patrol looking for violations. Unfortunately, even with added officers on the job, a fatal accident could still occur and a wrongful death case could result.
