DuPage County car accident attorney, uninsured motorist, uninsured motorist claims, auto accident, driver negligenceHow often are you sharing the road in DuPage County with an uninsured motorist? According to a recent article in the Insurance Journal, approximately one out of every eight drivers does not have automobile insurance and thus is putting insured drivers at greater risk in the event of an auto accident. In some regions of the country, the percentage of uninsured motorists on the road is as high as 20 percent. This information comes from a recent study conducted by the Insurance Research Council (IRC) and the Hanover Insurance Group. What else should Lombard drivers know about the risks of auto accidents involving uninsured drivers?

High Costs of Auto Accidents with Uninsured Drivers

The number of uninsured drivers on the highways and streets of the U.S. has been on the rise in recent years, according to the IRC study. Between 2010 and 2015, the rate rose from 12.3 percent to 13 percent on average across the country. And these accidents are extremely costly in terms of financial burden, not to mention the physical and emotional one. The average cost of an uninsured motorist claim is approximately $20,000, and that excludes claims for property damage (or damage to the motor vehicle).

DuPage County car accident lawyer, car accident claims, car accident injuries, car crashes, driver negligenceWhen considering the reasons why teen drivers are more likely to be involved in car accidents in DuPage County than older drivers, one may assume that teens do not have the same skills as more experienced drivers. However, according to a recent study conducted at the University of California, Los Angeles and reported by CBS News, many teens performed better than older motorists, even when traversing some of the worst roads in the state. In other words, teens may have more technical driving skills than most of us. Why, then, do teen drivers have a higher rate of serious and fatal collisions?

Teens Have Higher Skill Ratings Than Older Drivers

The study looked at 100 novice drivers who were preparing for their driver’s license test. The drivers were not necessarily teens, but were simply inexperienced drivers who were just learning to drive. Generally speaking, the researchers determined that teen drivers tend to have a higher skill rating than even slightly older drivers, and that is true for both male and female drivers. While female teen drivers have less confidence in their driving skills than male teen drivers, the study showed no difference in skill set among male and female drivers. Where the difference comes in is age. To reiterate, teens tend to have better driving skills than older drivers.

car crash, car accident claims, car accident case, car accident injuries, car accident damagesCar accidents in DuPage County frequently lead to serious personal injuries and substantial property damage. In addition to costing injury victims thousands of dollars (and sometimes much more) in medical bills and auto repair costs, those victims also lose thousands of dollars in lost wages due to the inability to work after suffering debilitating injuries. Generally speaking, if you are injured in an auto accident in Lombard, Illinois, what types of damages can you expect to receive and how do courts make decisions about these damages awards?

Different Types of Damages in a Motor Vehicle Crash in Illinois

In most car accident claims, Illinois law allows a plaintiff to seek compensatory damages, which are supposed to compensate the plaintiff for losses in the auto accident. The statute clarifies that compensatory damages are the combined total of both economic and non-economic damages. These two types of damages are defined as follows:

DuPage County car accident lawyer, traffic collision, car accidents and technology, safety technology, medical emergencyWhen most DuPage County residents think about car accident risks, they consider some of the more common reasons that motor vehicle collisions take place. For instance, aggressive driving, distracted driving, and impaired driving often make the top of the list for frequent causes of traffic collisions. But what about car accidents that do not result from a driver’s reckless or careless behavior, but rather from a medical emergency?

According to a recent report from CNBC, safety technology upgrades in automobiles may soon be able to detect when a person is having a heart attack and thus may be able to prevent a severe or fatal crash.

DuPage County car accident attorney, teen car accident, graduated licenses, car accident claim, teen driversDo graduated licenses help to reduce teen car accident deaths in DuPage County and throughout the state of Illinois? According to a recent article in the Chicago Tribune, since 2007—shortly before the state instituted its graduated license program—rates of teen car crash deaths have declined by more than 50 percent. That data comes from the Illinois Secretary of State office, and experts cite the graduated license program as the reason for fewer traffic fatalities involving teen drivers in the state.

What should you know about current teen car accident fatalities and the graduated license requirements under Illinois law?
