car accident case, DuPage County car accident attorney, driver negligence, road rage, aggressive drivingOne of the major causes of car accidents in DuPage County is aggressive driving. There are several different ways that aggressive driving can happen, from speeding and tailgating to incidents of serious road rage.

According to a news release from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, around 80 percent of all drivers on the road noted anger, aggression, or road rage behind the wheel at least once throughout the previous year. That information came out of a study conducted by AAA on aggressive driving and road rage, which also determined that approximately eight million U.S. drivers participated in extreme examples of road rage, such as "purposefully ramming another vehicle or getting out of the car to confront another driver."

To be clear, when aggressive driving causes an accident, the injury victim may be eligible to file a claim against the aggressive driver based on a theory of negligence.

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.

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.

car accident injuries, motor vehicle collisions,  traffic collision, child fatalities, car seat problemsIf you have a young child who requires a car seat, do you know that you have installed the seat properly such that your child is less likely to sustain fatal injuries in a motor vehicle accident in Lombard? Most parents know  their young children need to use car seats in order to stay safe and to abide by the law. However, according to a recent article in the Chicago Tribune, car seats are often improperly installed or parents use car seats that are not age-appropriate.

What does Illinois law say about car accident injury prevention and safety seats? And what can the recent article teach parents about promoting safety and preventing injuries in the event of a traffic collision?

auto accidents, DuPage County auto accident lawyer, drowsy driving, drowsy teen driving, car accident injuriesResidents of DuPage County may wonder how starting school later could have an impact on auto accident and bus accident rates around the Chicago suburbs. While the answer might not seem immediately apparent, the answer concerns drowsy driving and its effect on traffic collisions.

According to an article in the Chicago Tribune, “if school districts throughout the state [of Illinois] moved starting times to 8:30 a.m., so middle and high school students could sleep longer, Illinois’ economy would gain $1 billion within five years.” That economic increase would come from a drastic drop in motor vehicle crash rates, the Rand Corp. reported via a recent study.

Drowsy driving is a serious issue among teen drivers, even though it often does not get as much attention as teen driving issues such as distracted driving or impaired driving.
