DuPage County chain-reaction car accident attorney

Being in a car accident involving multiple vehicles can be an extremely frightening experience, especially if you are injured in the accident. Crashes with numerous automobiles, also known as chain reaction accidents, can end up causing relatively serious injuries such as broken bones, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, or even death in some cases. Chain reaction accidents typically involve three or more vehicles that collide, which was initially caused by one primary incident, often a rear-end collision. Chain reaction accidents are often chaotic and occur quickly, which is one of the reasons why it can be difficult to determine who is at fault for the accident. Recovering compensation from the accident can be tricky, which is why experienced legal counsel can help.   

Determining Fault in a Chain Reaction Accident

In most car accidents, there are typically only one or two cars involved, meaning there are only one or two parties who can be held responsible. When it comes to chain reaction accidents, determining who is at fault for the accident can be difficult because of the increased number of parties involved. Chain reaction accidents can actually result in multiple parties being held responsible for your injuries.

Lombard, IL pedestrian accident attorney

Everyone has their own preferred method of transportation, but we are all pedestrians at some point throughout our lifetime. Unfortunately, pedestrians were one of the groups that saw an increase in traffic fatalities in 2018. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were over 6,000 pedestrians killed in traffic crashes in 2018. This is the highest number of pedestrian deaths that have been recorded since 1990, prompting much concern about the safety of our nation’s pedestrians. In many cases, pedestrian accidents are caused by negligent drivers. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries from a pedestrian traffic accident, an Illinois personal injury attorney can help you take the legal necessary steps to recover compensation.

Recovering Compensation for Pedestrian Accident Injuries

Many campaigns for pedestrian safety start with educating pedestrians on the steps they can take to be proactive and protect themselves. These include paying attention to one's surroundings, wearing reflective or bright clothing at night, and only crossing the street at designated pedestrian crossings. While these things can help prevent an accident, the fault for many accidents involving pedestrians can be traced back to the driver. Many causes of pedestrian accidents include motorists who were driving under the influence, driving while distracted, speeding, or ignoring traffic lights and signs.

Bloomingdale Dog Bite Injury AttorneyOwning a dog is usually a very rewarding experience. Multiple studies have shown that canine companionship is good for humans of all ages, because a dog can reduce stress and promote relaxation. However, not everyone’s experience with dogs is good. Although canines can be domesticated, they do not always act in predictable ways, and they can cause serious harm if they decide to attack someone. Though dog bites can happen to any person, children tend to be most susceptible. Injuries sustained from a dog bite can range in severity from small scrapes or bruises to severe lacerations or serious infections. If you have been bitten by a dog in Illinois, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries.

Legal Liability for Dog Bites

In some states, owners are not liable for first-time dog bite attacks if they did not have a reason to believe their dog was capable of that behavior. Illinois is not one of those states. According to the Illinois Animal Control Act, dog owners are responsible for injuries inflicted by their animals in most situations, even if it is the first time the dog has acted with aggression. Typically, the onlys way an owner would not be held liable is if the victim provoked the dog or if they were trespassing on the owner’s property.

Proving Negligence

Since Illinois law allows a victim to pursue compensation from an dog's owner in most dog bite cases, it may not be necessary to prove that an owner was negligent. However, a person may be able to improve the chances of success in their case if they can show that an animal's owner did not take the proper measures to protect others from injury by their dog. For example, an owner may be found to be negligent if they did not keep their dog on a leash or ensure that it was contained within a yard or enclosure. An owner may also be negligent if their dog had been found to be "dangerous" or "vicious," and they did not meet their legal requirements for ensuring that the animal was kept in a proper enclosure where it could not harm others.

DuPage County Motorcycle Accident Injury LawyerRiding a motorcycle can be a great experience, but it can also be dangerous. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were more than 5,000 motorcycle fatalities that occurred in the United States in 2017. Even if a wrongful death does not occur in a motorcycle accident, motorcyclists may experience several different types of injuries. The NHTSA also reports that there were roughly 89,000 motorcyclists injured in 2017. These injuries can range from minor to severe, depending on the circumstances of a crash, and they may include lacerations and cuts or spinal cord or brain damage. Listed below are a few more of the most common injuries that can occur in a motorcycle accident:

Injuries Stemming From Motorcycle Accidents

If you have been in a motorcycle accident, you know how serious these injuries can be. The severity of many motorcycle accident injuries can depend on what a person was wearing at the time of the accident. For example, a motorcyclist who was not wearing a helmet at the time of the impact will most likely suffer a more extreme head injury. Some other common injuries that can take place in a motorcycle accident include:

  • Road rash: This type of abrasive injury occurs when a person's skin comes into contact with the road. It can be the result of both minor and major motorcycle accidents, and it may be characterized as either a first, second or third-degree injury.

Naperville car accident lawyer driver fatigueIn this day and age of advanced technology, there has been an emphasis placed on our well-being. Safe driving measures, specifically, have been of great interest to both federal and state governments across the country. One of the most notorious dangerous driving behaviors that causes thousands of car accidents each year is operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Increased focus has also been placed on other reckless behaviors, such as distracted driving and speeding. Recently, however, a trend of drowsy/fatigued driving has been scrutinized as an additional form of unsafe driving.

What Is Drowsy Driving?

Simply put, drowsy driving occurs when a person gets behind the wheel of a car when they are tired. Although everyone experiences fatigue differently, it is always considered unsafe to drive a vehicle if you are sleepy. Not all drowsy drivers will fall asleep at the wheel, but the likelihood of an accident does increase. If you are driving while you are tired, your senses are not as alert, your brain functions a little slower, and you could end up in a serious accident.

How Big of an Issue Is Drowsy Driving?

An alarming 60 percent of drivers have reported that they have operated a vehicle while feeling sleepy. Even more concerning, over 40 percent of drivers have admitted to “nodding off” or falling asleep while driving at some point throughout their driving history. According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were an estimated 91,000 traffic crashes involving drowsy driving in 2017. These numbers are likely much higher than reported because of the lack of knowledge and ability to measure this behavior.
