Bloomingdale auto accident attorney

According to the National Safety Council (NSC), Americans only do about one-quarter of their driving during nighttime hours. However, these same night hours are when around half of all traffic-related deaths occur. Nighttime driving is not something that can always be avoided. There are a variety of factors that are often present that increase the dangers of driving at night, some of which are in the motorist’s control, and some of which are not. For example, there tend to be more intoxicated and/or fatigued drivers on the road at night than there are during the day. If you have been involved in a nighttime car accident, you should reach out to a personal injury attorney to discuss your options for seeking damages.

Staying Safe When You Are On the Road at Night

One of the biggest obstacles that a driver faces at night is the darkness itself. This increases the chances that a motorist will not see an obstacle in his or her path and end up not having enough time to stop or veer out of the way. Because driving at night is so much more dangerous than driving during the day, there are steps you should take to make sure you are being as safe as possible:

Bloomingdale Dog Bite Injury LawyerDogs are a man’s best friend and have been for thousands of years. As working animals and loving companions, it is no wonder that dogs are one of the most popular pets in the United States. Even though dogs are typically friendly with cheerful demeanors, they are still animals. You cannot always predict the behavior of a dog, even if they are trained and have no prior history of being aggressive. When dogs attack, the injuries that result can be severe. If you or a loved one has experienced a dog bite injury, you be sure to understand your options for receiving compensation. Here are a few mistakes that a dog bite victim should try to avoid after suffering from attack:

1: Not Getting Medical Attention

The first thing you should do after you are bitten by a dog is seek medical attention. Even if you think your injury is not that bad or that you do not need first aid, you should do so anyways. Getting your injury examined by a medical professional can ensure that the incident and injuries are documented, which can be useful later in the compensation recovery process.

2: Not Contacting the Police

After medical attention has been sought, it is important to call the police and file a dog bite report. These documents will help in the pursuit of compensation from the negligent owner or even an insurance company. Filing a report also allows authorities to effectively deal with the dog bite and help prevent future incidents with the same canine.

Naperville Spinal Cord Injury AttorneyYou are sitting in your car on the way home from work. The traffic is terrible today, and you are crawling along at a snail’s pace. You stop for what seems like the hundredth time in the past five minutes and take a deep breath. Suddenly, the car behind slams into you, sending your head flying forward, only to snap backward and then upright again -- a classic case of whiplash. According to Harvard Health Publishing, more than one million Americans experience whiplash injuries each year. Although whiplash is thought to be one of the less serious types of car accident injuries, it can cause a person to experience immense pain and discomfort.

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a common neck injury that occurs when your head is suddenly and forcefully thrown forward and then backward. When the neck extends past its normal range of motion, which it usually does during a whiplash injury, the bones, discs, nerves, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage that are located in the neck can become damaged or strained. The most common way whiplash occurs is during car accidents, although you can sustain a whiplash injury from other activities, such as contact sports, physical abuse, being hit in the head, or even a hard fall.

Symptoms of Whiplash

A person may not always immediately experience the effects of whiplash injuries. Sometimes, it can take up to 24 hours for injuries to fully develop and symptoms to appear. Some of the most common symptoms of whiplash include:

Bloomingdale truck accident lawyerAccording to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), there were approximately 450,000 police-reported traffic accidents involving large trucks in 2017. Of these documented crashes, roughly 344,000 resulted in at least one person experiencing some sort of personal injury. Due to the large size of semi-trucks and tractor-trailers, if an injury or wrongful death does result from a truck accident, the victim is often the individual that is in the opposing vehicle. As of recently, there has been an increased effort placed on determining what can cause these dangerous crashes and how they can be prevented. Financial compensation may be awarded to the victim of an auto collision.    

Critical Events

Among the many variables that can lead a truck accident, the actions or factors that make an auto collision unavoidable are known as critical events. According to the FMCSA, there are three types of critical events that are most commonly involved in collisions:

  • Running out of the travel lane
  • Loss of vehicle control due to shifting cargo, systems failure, or traveling at unsafe speeds
  • Colliding with the rear end of another vehicle in the truck’s travel lane

Critical Reasons

Simply put, the critical reason for a truck accident is the immediate explanation of the critical event. Driver error, vehicle failure, or environmental conditions could be the explanation behind a crash. In many cases, the cause of the critical event can be related to a decision that was made by the driver, such as speeding or tailgating. The FMCSA categorizes a critical reason as:

Naperville winter car accident injury attorney

The harsh weather conditions that can be associated with a Midwest winter may leave motorists wishing they did not have to travel. While it is true that every season produces different driving hazards, winter may be considered the most dangerous. Freezing rain, ice, sleet, and snow can all cause a driver to lose control of his or her vehicle, leading to a potentially serious injury. Regardless of the weather conditions, a driver is still responsible for his or her actions behind the wheel. To keep yourself, your family, and other motorists safe on the road, here are a few tips that can reduce the likelihood of a car accident

Prepare Your Vehicle

Maintaining proper safety equipment in your vehicle can make winter driving more manageable. To do so, you should check your tires, battery, headlights, and windshield wipers to ensure they are in proper working order. Traction issues resulting from worn or “bald” tires could lead to a head-on collision or a rear-end accident. Furthermore, a simple headlight outage or a windshield wiper malfunction could significantly decrease a driver’s visibility. Frequently checking the status of your car and its fluids could save your life.
