Motor Vehicle Accidents Archives

6 children, others hurt in Illinois motor vehicle accident

Accidents happen on Illinois highways every single day. A recent motor vehicle accident involved out-of-state travelers. Such situations can be stressful, especially if litigation takes place in the aftermath of a particular incident that resulted in injury or death. The more a traveler knows ahead of time regarding how to obtain medical, legal or emotional support after an accident, the less stressful navigating such circumstances might be.

Motor vehicle accidents often occur in early morning hours

While one might think that traveling after midnight is safer than trying to navigate midday traffic, the fact is that Illinois roadways can be just as dangerous in post-midnight hours as they can at noon or during rush hour traffic. It all depends who a traveler happens to be sharing the road with; if there is a negligent or reckless driver nearby, anyone in the vicinity is at risk for injury. When motor vehicle accidents occur, some victims may escape unscathed while others suffer serious injuries or even death.

Motor vehicle accidents: Who is liable for damages?

When a collision occurs on an Illinois roadway, the result is often catastrophic, if not deadly. Recovery periods following motor vehicle accidents can take weeks or months. In fact, many injuries cause partial or full permanent disabilities.

Fatal motor vehicle accidents and civil legal claims

Every day, in Illinois and across the country, the lives of motorists and pedestrians are at risk, especially when negligent or reckless drivers are nearby. Thousands of motor vehicle accidents cause devastation to families and communities, particularly those that result in fatalities. When immediate family members of deceased accident victims believe another party is responsible for their loved ones' deaths, they are able to file civil legal claims to seek restitution.

Motor vehicle accidents involving kids are especially tragic

Chicago police often engage chase tactics if drivers attempt to the flee the scene of a traffic stop. High-speed chases are definitely dangerous for all involved, as well as any nearby motorist or pedestrian. Motor vehicle accidents often occur during police chases, as one recently did in Illinois that resulted in a child fatality and injuries to numerous others.

Illinois motor vehicle accident: Numerous injuries, driver cited

Many Illinois travelers know what it like to be driving along and suddenly come upon an accident scene. Every motorist is obligated to remain alert and cautious behind the wheel so that they can react to changes in traffic flow. A terrible motor vehicle accident recently occurred when one driver reportedly failed to stop to avoid a collision.

Motor vehicle accidents involving pedestrians especially tragic

Morning hours are often busy when it comes to traffic in Illinois. People typically commute to work during these hours and typically share the roads with those who take buses, who may be walking from a bus stop to their destination. Commercial vehicles, such as school buses, are also often part of the traffic flow. Such situations can lead to motor vehicle accidents, especially if a negligent driver happens to be on the road.

Icy road conditions often factors in motor vehicle accidents

Illinois winters can be brutal, as anyone who lives or frequently travels here can attest. While the state does its best to keep roadways plowed and keep travelers as safe as possible, motorists and pedestrians must proceed with caution at all times. Icy roads are particularly perilous, often the scenes of motor vehicle accidents in this state and others.

Motor vehicle accidents high risk in Illinois during holidays

As in most other states, Illinois roads are often busier and traffic-laden during the holidays. As Christmas winds down, many people are headed back to department stores to exchange or return gifts. The party season typically continues through the new year, however, so a lot of travelers are those who are visiting family or meeting up with friends or co-workers to celebrate. All these issues and then some make the risk of motor vehicle accidents quite high.

Road equipment often a factor in Illinois motor vehicle accidents

A small Illinois community is mourning the loss of two members who are said to have been integral to service and friendship throughout the town. Another community member, who was with the two who died, suffered serious injuries in the collision that took their lives and remains in the hospital at this time. As in some other motor vehicle accidents, a key factor in this collision was a piece of heavy machinery, specifically, a road-cleaning device that was reportedly in motion on the road when the recent tragedy occurred.
