Cross-over car accident claims 1 life and injures 4

The number of deaths and injuries resulting from Illinois accidents where one driver crosses over into the lanes of oncoming traffic is concerning. It also commonly leaves a lot of unanswered questions, because the reason for crossing over may be difficult to determine. One person died and several were injured in a recent car accident that followed such circumstances.

What you need to know after a hit-and-run car accident

It is normal to feel overwhelmed and confused after a car accident, especially if the other driver is not cooperative or the accident was a hit-and-run. Despite confusing circumstances, Illinois residents still have options for legal recourse. By understanding the proper steps to take after a car accident, it is still possible to secure the financial recovery that is deserved. 

Illinois car accident involving farm equipment proves fatal

In many areas where farming and agriculture are ways that a significant number of individuals make a living, it is not uncommon for tractors and other machinery to be seen on the roadways. However, there are precautions that drivers of agricultural machinery should take in order to ensure their safety and the safety of other drivers, such as having flashing lights or flags on the vehicle. Unfortunately, there are situations in which these vehicles can be involved in a car accident.

Driver causes car accident with bus, injures 4 plus herself

People tend to base their decisions about their commute to and from work on several different factors. For some, driving a personal vehicle may be quicker or allow them a brief amount of quiet time before they walk into the hustle and bustle of the office. Others choose public transportation for financial or environmental reasons. Some may even perceive public transportation in Illinois to be less prone to accidents than passenger vehicles are to having a car accident. Unfortunately, this belief may not always be true.

Car accident in Illinois leads to multiple deaths

The deadly outcomes of some single-car accidents can be difficult for families of the victims to come to terms with. They may wonder how such a car accident could take place, but specific information may not be available until the authorities complete their investigations and reports. Though they may be waiting for details on the accident, decedents' families may wish to go ahead and find out more about whether they could potentially file wrongful death claims.

Chain-reaction Illinois car accident results in fatality

When a vehicle breaks down on the roadway, it can become a hazard for other drivers. In many cases, drivers are able to notice the stopped vehicle and adjust their speed and course in order to avoid a collision. Unfortunately, some drivers may not be aware of the hazard or may not accommodate adequately enough to avoid a car accident. In such a situation, a fatality could potentially occur.

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.

Car accident leads to death of Illinois pedestrian

When individuals walk to their destinations, they can face numerous hazards and dangers from other travelers. Typically, utilizing a crosswalk can help reduce the risk of an accident, but crosswalks are not guarantees that a pedestrian will not be involved in a car accident. If a person is operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, pedestrians could become even more at risk of being seriously injured.
