Truck accidents: Three vehicles involved in Illinois crash

When a driver fails to see a vehicle that is in front of him or her, there is a high chance that an accident will occur. Some vehicles are able to apply the brakes in time for the impact to be lessened, but some crashes can be quite severe. Truck accidents that take place due to a driver colliding with the rear of another vehicle can cause serious injuries and perhaps involve multiple vehicles.

Fatal crash could be cause for wrongful death claim in Illinois

Determining the cause of an accident can be vital information, especially if the accident resulted in a fatality. Authorities may rely on various means to gather information, such as witness statements and physical evidence, to conclude what factors may have played a role. This knowledge can prove useful to individuals who may have lost a loved one and wish to file a wrongful death claim.

Illinois car accident leads to fatality, serious injuries

Serious accidents can have outcomes that may leave individuals regretting their actions. Individuals who chose to drink and drive may wish that they had not done so, and individuals who are injured due to being involved in an accident may wish that they had waited a few more minutes before leaving for their destination. Nevertheless, a car accident can happen under any circumstances, and regrets will not change the outcomes.

Truck accidents: Illinois student hit, killed crossing street

After an accident in which a person has been killed, many people may wish to express their grief and sympathy for the family. This type of reaction is not uncommon, and various other reactions may also be considered commonplace and acceptable. Because truck accidents can often lead to fatalities, civil lawsuits are also not rare outcomes of such incidents if families and loved ones wish to seek restitution.

Illinois car accident claims lives of both drivers involved

When a car accident takes place, many people may hope that the outcome is not tragic. Sadly, many results of a car accident can be devastating, especially when more than one fatality occurs. If such an accident results in the drivers being killed, a victim's family may still be able to file a civil claim to seek compensation against the estate of the driver considered responsible for the fatal crash.

Illinois truck driver may look into temporary benefits

Injuries of any kind can result in parties needing to determine different ways to go about their daily activities. In some cases, injuries can lead to individuals being unable to work until they have recovered, and such a situation could mean a party loses income. If an injury is suffered while on the job, workers' compensation may be able to provide temporary benefits that could potentially help financially.

Illinois worker killed, workers' compensation may apply

When individuals work in construction areas, there are certain hazards of which they should be aware in order to make sure that they are not at high risk of being involved in an accident. If a worker is involved in an on-the-job incident that results in injury or a fatality, the situation should be taken very seriously. This type of event will likely lead to an investigation, and workers' compensation may be applicable.

Emotional losses likely result from fatal Illinois accident

Speed, distraction, impairment and many other factors can play a role in a car accident. It is up to the authorities to determine which, if any, of these conditions may have contributed to an accident and whether charges are appropriate for the situation. If a driver is believed to have been impaired at the time of a fatal accident, that driver could face criminal charges, and family members of the victim may wish to file a civil case for monetary and/or emotional losses.
