DuPage County car accident attorney, auto accidents, Elderly Victims, car crash, car accident claimsHow often are elderly drivers involved in auto accidents in DuPage County? And are older drivers more often the cause of serious traffic collisions than younger adult drivers? According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as of 2015 there were approximately 40 million drivers on the road aged 65 and older across the United States. While the CDC emphasizes that retaining a driver’s license can help a senior to “stay independent and mobile,” there are also downsides. To be sure, the risk of being hurt or killed in a motor vehicle crash increases as you get older.

What should Lombard drivers know about aging and age-related car accident risks?

car accidents, ride-sharing accidents, car accident case, following a car accident, car accident injuriesRide-sharing services like Uber and Lyft are becoming increasingly popular throughout Chicagoland, and many DuPage County residents also rely on ride-sharing apps instead of calling a taxi. Indeed, it is often much more convenient to log into your Uber app to arrange for a car in many different situations, whether you are meeting friends or coworkers for an evening out, or if you want to avoid parking at Chicago O’Hare or Midway airports.

An article in Crain’s Chicago Business tracked Uber usage throughout the Chicago area, emphasizing that younger and more affluent people are the most likely to use ride-sharing services. The bottom line is this: there are many more Uber and Lyft drivers than ever before. With more ride-sharing apps and vehicles on the road, car accidents can happen with Uber or Lyft drivers. What should you do if you were involved in a crash with an Uber driver? In other words, what steps do you need to take if an Uber or Lyft driver was careless or reckless and crashed into your motor vehicle? In most cases, the steps you should take are similar to those in any car accident case.

DuPage County car accident attorney, DuPage County car accident, car accident case, car crash, driver negligenceThe weather in Lombard and throughout the Chicago area has been especially cold. Indeed, in late December, a report from ABC News 7 indicated that wind chills were pushing temperatures in and around the city well below zero, causing “dangerously cold” temperatures. When it snows in the winter, and when the temperatures drop rapidly, roads and highways throughout DuPage County can become especially hazardous.

An article from The Weather Channel emphasizes that black ice—which is a thin coat of ice on the road that is usually transparent—can appear, causing cars to slip and crash into one another. When inclement weather, from black ice to a snowstorm, causes a car crash in DuPage County, who is liable?

What are the risks of new high-tech gadgets in automobiles?

According to a recent article in Consumer Reports, high-tech features in new automobiles may be even more distracting to drivers than smartphones. Most specifically, vehicles with built-in navigation systems may lead to more auto accidents in DuPage County than most residents might think.

Each year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) releases a report concerning car accident statistics and fatalities on roads throughout the country. In 2016, fatal motor vehicle crashes rose again, just as they did between 2014 and 2015, according to the report.

As the report explains, in the last decade we have been seeing a generally downward trend in motor vehicle crash fatality rates. Yet in 2016, the NHTSA reported a total of 37,461 fatalities as a result of traffic collisions on U.S. roadways, which was a 5.6 percent increase from 2015, in which 35,485 fatalities were reported.
