car-accidents-pedestrian-injuries-DuPage-County.jpgPedestrians are often in the bulls-eye of danger when it comes to car accidents. Traffic at intersections can be a major area of confusion and concern. About 40 percent of the estimated 5,811,000 crashes that occurred in the United States in 2008 were intersection-related crashes. Although road rules can be seemingly clear, many drivers—for a multitude of reasons—can find themselves involved in a nasty car accident scene.

Sometimes, signage and a lack of courtesy can lead to an accident, but so does negligence. If a driver displayed negligent conduct, and you were injured because of this negligence, then you may have a case.

Being involved and injured in a car accident is a traumatic situation. However, moving forward with a court case can be overwhelming too. Yet having an experienced and diligent car accident attorney by your side increases your chances of a successful litigation to receive compensation for injuries sustained.

b2ap3_thumbnail_automated-car-accidents-DuPage-County_20170418-150829_1.jpgAutomated, self-driving cars were supposed to be the wave of the future— technology that would decrease the number of car crashes that occur each year. Are they really the answer, though? Or do they have the potential to do more harm than good? Two recent accidents in Arizona, both of which involved automated cars, suggest there may be some major issues at hand.

A Look at the Accidents

The two vehicles—one a Tesla, the other an automated Uber—crashed in Arizona within the same week. The first incident, which occurred in Phoenix, involved the Tesla and an on-duty motorcycle officer. News sources indicate that the officer had been stopped at a light while exiting the highway. The Tesla stopped briefly, directly behind the officer, but then moved forward. The driver of the Tesla stated he had been using the vehicle in the autopilot mode, but authorities were not able to verify this. No one was injured in the crash, and the on-duty officer stated the crash was not severe enough to even warrant a report or investigation.

b2ap3_thumbnail_traumatic-brain-injury-DuPage-County.jpgAccording to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and estimated 1.7 million people suffer from traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year. Of those, approximately 52,000 experience fatality. Motor vehicle accidents are the third leading cause of those deaths. Thankfully, science is starting to make some headway in treatments—some of which may save victims that would have otherwise died from their injuries. The following explains further.

Improved Screenings for Injured Victims

Lack of early detection is one of the biggest reasons that TBIs become fatal. This is exactly why science has started focusing on methods for earlier and better detection. For example, rather than search for a brain hemorrhage in a CT scan, some victims might be better served through biomarker testing. MRIs may also be used to better detect if a victim has experienced mild traumatic brain injury. This can reduce the risk that less severe cases are missed, which can, in turn, reduce the risk for secondary injuries that could easily become life-threatening.

DuPage County personal injury lawyers, winter crashesAs the weather turns colder, drivers gear up for winter weather driving. They are winterizing their cars, changing out their tires, and preparing emergency packs to go into the backs of their vehicles. Some may even be tuning into the weather station each night, just to be sure they are safe to drive the next day. Yet, not all will know what to do if a crash occurs. The following information can give you a better understanding of the most common types of winter crashes, and it can give you an idea on how to deal with them, should one happen to you or someone you love.

Vehicle Damage from Hail or Falling Debris 

When roads are closed, most drivers will stay home (rightly so since you could be held liable for ignoring closures). Unfortunately, keeping your car in the driveway does not necessarily prevent damage to your vehicle. Hail and falling trees, power lines, and large branches can do some extensive damage. If you have comprehensive insurance, it should cover your loss. If you do not have this form of insurance, you should seriously consider adding it.

Intersection NightmareDriving on today’s roads can be treacherous. Many factors can contribute to accidents, injury, and death. Drivers can encounter distracted drivers, reckless cars and those who simply ignore the rules of the road and show their frustration at seemingly insignificant situations. With almost thirty thousand fatal car accidents in 2014, it is no wonder that we should all be concerned about how and where we drive especially at intersections, where people are t-boned and sideswiped frequently.

If you were involved in a car crash that occurred at an intersection due to another driver’s negligent actions contributed to the accident, obtain legal advice from an experienced personal injury attorney. In the event of an injury you may also be able to make a case for a financial settlement to assist you in your recovery.

Tricky Turns?
