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?

Lombard truck accident injury attorney, truck accidents, distracted driving, truck equipment failure, driver negligenceTruck accidents involving semis are often catastrophic. Other drivers who are involved in truck crashes are often seriously injured or even killed as a result. The sheer force and power behind these massive vehicles make them a potentially deadly weapon when they lose control on the highway.

Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) holders have specialized training and experience to avoid big rig accidents, yet they occur all too frequently. So, what are the most common causes of these types of accidents?

b2ap3_thumbnail_dangerous-truck-drivers-DuPage-County.jpgConsistent safe driving practices is ideal. However, at the end of the day, the reality is that accidents do happen. Additionally, when accidents involve large trucks, the destruction and ensuing injuries can be catastrophic.

Many regulations are in place to promote safe driving by truckers on our roads. These regulations include limits on driving hours, maintenance requirements, and weight limits. One factor which can also contribute to a deadly truck accident is the negligent hiring of a dangerous driver by a trucking company.

If you or a loved one was involved in a serious truck accident and you suspect the driver was driving in a dangerous manner that contributed to the accident, retain the services of an experienced truck accident attorney. Your attorney will make an assessment of your rights and potential to recover monetary damages for your injuries and losses.

b2ap3_thumbnail_jackknifing-trucks-DuPage-County.jpgCommerce is driving the flow of goods at higher rates than ever. E-commerce, or-online sales, are increasing the journey of goods from warehouses for distribution all over the country. The vehicles transporting these goods—massive tractor trailer trucks—are sharing the roads with everyday drivers—busy moms, teen drivers, senior citizens and school buses.

However, the sheer weight of these trucks can be problematic. When a truck is not properly loaded, a hazardous driving condition can be created due to an uneven load.

If you have been involved in an serious truck accident and suspect the driver was driving in a dangerous manner, contact a truck accident attorney who can assist you in seeking compensation for injuries and damage you have suffered.

b2ap3_thumbnail_rear-ended-negligent-drivers-DuPage-County.jpgOne of the most traumatic life events is being involved in a car accident. Motor vehicle accidents take many forms, including the all too common fender bender and accidents involving excessive speed or impairment which can lead to high speed collisions or side impact accidents. Whichever type, car accidents can cause injuries and long term pain and suffering.

Rear-end accidents are no exception, and the injuries sustained by the impacted driver can be serious. The National Highway and Transportation Safety Administration reported that 28 percent of all crashes are rear-end collisions. This demonstrates how prevalent rear-end collisions are and how many negligent drivers share the roads with you.

If you were the victim of a rear-end collision caused by a driver who was not acting in a reasonable manner, you may be entitled to compensation—a monetary award for your injuries. Speaking with a respected personal injury attorney should be your first step in determining if you have a viable case.
