Young woman killed in Illinois car accident, others injured

When individuals are in their early 20s, ideas about what will happen in the rest of their lives are often at the forefront of their thoughts. Some people may consider traveling or taking on a new job, and the idea of dying young may not be one that they give much credence too. Unfortunately, young people can just as easily be victims of a car accident as older individuals, and their lives can be cut short.

Car accident proves fatal in Illinois

Being unable to avoid a collision is a situation in which too many drivers find themselves. These collisions may only be minor situations that prove to be nothing more than a small delay, or they could be serious wrecks in which multiple injuries are suffered or lives are lost. A car accident of this magnitude can take a substantial toll on the lives of the survivors and the loved ones of deceased victims.

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.

Alleged drug impaired driver may face a wrongful death claim

Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol endangers the life of the driver and the lives of other road users. Illinois motorists may share the concern of many about the number of innocent victims who lose their lives in accidents where alcohol or drugs are involved. It is not uncommon for impaired drivers to face a wrongful death lawsuit after such accidents.

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.

Wrongful death case could arise after fatal Illinois crash

When traveling the roadways, drivers are often maneuvering in and out of the paths of the other vehicles. These actions may take place at intersections or other places where drivers may attempt to make a turn. Unfortunately, not all maneuvers are carried out successfully, and accidents on the roadways are common. Many of these accidents can result in fatalities, which could lead to potential civil cases regarding wrongful death.

Family may see Illinois accident as wrongful death situation

Being a passenger in a vehicle essentially leads to the driver being responsible for that passenger's safety. Similarly, if the driver is under the influence or otherwise impaired, the likelihood of being involved in an accident increases for the occupants of the vehicle. If a car accident does occur, the situation could result in serious charges and possibly wrongful death claims if there are fatalities.

Wrongful death claim may result from Illinois teen's death

Parents of new drivers are often uneasy when they first start letting their child drive on their own. Unfortunately for some parents, their wariness may not have been unwarranted if their child is involved in a serious accident. Should a car accident with a young driver prove to be a fatal, the driver and his or her parents may have a serious legal situation to contend with, especially if the victim's family files a wrongful death claim.

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.

Monetary losses could further burden accident victims' families

Many individuals know that a situation that may seem under control can quickly take a turn for the worst. For example, if a driver is traveling at a high rate of speed, he or she may believe that the car can be kept under control. Unfortunately, fatal accidents often result from drivers losing control due to excessive speed. Families of victims involved in such accidents are frequently left facing emotional and monetary losses.
