Personal Injury

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:

It may be difficult to consider getting out on a bicycle in the winter months, especially in Illinois, but the study provides helpful information to consider as we slowly look ahead to warmer months and as we consider ways of reducing motor vehicle crashes in the New Year.

Bicycling Yourself Can Lead You to Take More Care Behind the Wheel

How can getting more bicyclists out on the roads in DuPage County and across the country reduce the total rate of motor vehicle collisions with bicyclists? The premise of the study is this: the more that drivers experience what it is like to ride a bicycle and to share the road with other motorists, the more likely those individuals will be to take particular care when they are behind the wheel.

DuPage County motorcycle accident attorney, motorcycle accidents, personal injury claim, DUI, DUI accidentsIf you regularly ride a motorcycle in Lombard or elsewhere in DuPage County, or even if you regularly share the road with motorcyclists, it is probably obvious that bikers have less protection in the event of a motorcycle accident than do vehicle occupants. Motorcyclists do not have the protection of the automobile’s body, airbags, and other safety features that often come standard in many vehicles.

While numerous studies have analyzed motorcycle collisions and their severity, a recent report from U.S. News & World Report suggests that motorcycle crashes are actually costlier and deadlier than many researchers and safety advocates previously believed.

auto accidents,DuPage County auto accident lawyer, traffic safety, car crashes, car accidentWhether you commute regularly from your home in DuPage County to your job in downtown Chicago, or if you only use your car for recreational purposes or for getting around your own neighborhood, car accidents can happen quickly and without warning. While there are many steps we all can take in order to prevent accidents from happening in the first place, drivers can additionally purchase vehicles that have well-designed safety features in order to both prevent crashes and limit injuries in the event that a collision does occur.

According to a recent article in The New York Times, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) newly released its list for “Top Safety Pick” and “Top Safety Pick Plus.” What should you learn about the vehicles that made the list in order to avoid a car accident and serious injuries?

truck accidents, DuPage County truck accident attorney, Illinois truck accident, truck wreck, truck drivers injuredWe often hear about the risks of drowsy driving when it comes to truck accidents in DuPage County and throughout the country. More specifically, given that semi-truck drivers tend to be on the road for long stretches of time, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has specific hours of service regulations designed to ensure that a truck driver is not behind the wheel for more than a certain number of consecutive hours during any single drive. Those regulations require truckers to take rest breaks at certain points in order to prevent truck crashes.

Yet the hours of service regulations do not take into account the hours a truck driver might spend behind the wheel in his or her own vehicle in order to reach the workplace—the location where the truck driver actually picks up the 18-wheeler and begins driving for pay. Can this commute time contribute to drowsy driving accidents?
