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.  

Victims of Illinois motor vehicle accidents can seek justice

Illinois roadways are often busy, chaotic places, especially if drivers fail to adhere to traffic regulations or are otherwise negligent behind the wheel. Distracted drivers, drunk drivers and those who are reckless are responsible for causing thousands of motor vehicle accidents every year, many that have catastrophic results. State law allows those who are injured because of other people's negligence to seek compensation for damages.

Emergency airlifts often follow serious motor vehicle accidents

An Illinois hospital recently prepared to receive an incoming emergency. A 15-year-old girl was being flown to the facility from the scene of multi-vehicle collision. Police have reportedly issued a traffic citation to one of the drivers involved. Motor vehicle accidents like this one are often fatal; thankfully, everyone involved in this incident survived. 

Can you decrease your chances of motor vehicle accidents?

Illinois roadways are often busy, chaotic places. Some days, you might breathe a great sigh of relief when you finally reach your destination safely. There is no guaranteed way to avoid motor vehicle accidents although there are several ways to improve your own safety while you drive.

Illinois drivers at risk for motor vehicle accidents

When you get behind the wheel of a car to drive on an Illinois roadway, you are obligated to adhere to all state traffic and safety regulations. Motor vehicle accidents often occur when drivers fail to so. The problem is that no matter how well you adhere to state laws or how alert and cautious you are while driving, there is little to nothing you can do about another person's driving behavior.
