self-driving car, Illinois car accidents, DuPage County auto accident lawyer, car accident prevention, driver negligenceEarlier this spring, a self-driving car struck and killed a woman, and it made national news. News about the deadly pedestrian accident involving an autonomous vehicle has increased the public’s concerns about the safety of self-driving cars. Can autonomous technology really prevent auto accidents, or do we need to be more concerned about software mistakes and other technological errors that could lead to deadly collisions between self-driving vehicles and pedestrians?

According to a recent article in U.S. News & World Report, drivers are more skeptical than ever of the safety value of self-driving cars, and many believe that they are likely to cause more car crashes than to prevent them. The study reports that, in order for people to trust autonomous technology, they would need evidence that it is significantly safer than human drivers.

Illinois car accidents, DuPage County car accident lawyer, motor vehicle collision, driver negligence, drowsy drivingIf you are planning a family road trip this summer that takes you away from DuPage County, it is important to consider the risks of a serious car accident while you are on the road. No one plans for a devastating motor vehicle collision, but they happen more often than most of us assume, and they frequently occur because of another driver’s negligence.

While negligence can take many forms, one of the more frequent reasons for crashes during extended road trips is drowsy driving. It is more difficult for a driver to stay alert—and to stay awake—behind the wheel after hours on the road without a break. According to a recent article in the Claims Journal, auto accidents caused by drowsy driving are more likely to occur farther away from rest stops.

This means that drivers throughout DuPage County will be sharing the road with school buses and young pedestrians who are walking home from school or home from the bus stop. When drivers fail to take precautions near school zones, serious car accidents can happen.

It is extremely important for automobile drivers to be careful in any areas where children might be present and to know the laws surrounding passenger vehicles and school buses.

These accidents are likely preventable if the driver had taken care of his or her car in a responsible way.

If you believe that improper vehicle maintenance caused a car accident that left you injured, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible. You should not be forced to pay for your medical bills and may be eligible for other types of compensation.

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.
