Motor vehicle accidents: Know where to seek support

One never knows what will happen on an Illinois highway at any given moment. Some days, travel is rather uneventful, with little to no traffic and all motorists carefully adhering to traffic laws and safety regulations. However, that can all change in an instant if a distracted, intoxicated or reckless driver gets behind the wheel. Motor vehicle accidents are often sudden and disastrous, which is why it's critical to know where to seek support if injuries occur.

Motor vehicle accidents: When wrong-way drivers cause them

Like most other states, Illinois is often a dangerous place to travel. Any number of issues can lead to automobile collisions. A common factor in many fatal motor vehicle accidents is wrong-way driving. In fact, that appears to have been the cause of a recent incident that occurred just after midnight on a Sunday.

Driver fatigue an apparent factor in fatal motor vehicle accident

Every licensed driver in Illinois must adhere to traffic laws and safety regulations. Passengers, pedestrians and other motorists can reasonably expect that a person getting behind the wheel is alert, unimpaired and legally permitted to drive. When a motor vehicle accident occurs, investigators often discover clues that lead them to believe a particular driver's negligence was a causal factor in the collision. Such drivers are often held financially accountable for the damage their actions have caused others.

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.
