DuPage County, IL speeding accident injury attorney

In today’s world, it can feel like we always need to keep moving and doing more every day. For some people, driving a little faster than the speed limit to fit everything into a single day seems like a good idea, but what may seem like a minor violation of the law can have deadly consequences. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), speeding killed more than 9,700 people in 2017 and accounted for more than 25 percent of all fatal traffic accidents. Often, speeding may seem like a victimless crime, but speeding accidents can cause serious or fatal injuries. 

Why Do People Speed?

There are many reasons why a driver would speed. Most of the time, the reasons for speeding are not malicious, but speeding for any reason can be dangerous. Drivers may speed because they are:

Millions of car accidents are reported to police each year and range in severity from property damage only to fatal accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were nearly 6.5 million police-reported traffic crashes in 2017. While the majority of them were property-damage-only crashes, there were nearly 2 million crashes involving injuries and more than 34,000 fatal crashes.

One of the most serious injuries you can suffer when you are in a car accident is a brain injury. The brain is arguably the most important organ in your body because it controls all of your bodily functions. Injuring this organ can result in long-term or even permanent impairment to both your physical and mental states. Suffering a brain injury from a car accident may entitle you to financial compensation if the crash was someone else’s fault.

Picture this: You are in your car, stopped at a red light. The light turns green, so you hit the gas, but all of a sudden, a car running a red light comes out of nowhere and slams into the side of your vehicle. You put your hazard lights on and get out of your vehicle, trying to assess any damage to you or your car. You talk to the other driver and ask for their insurance information, but the other driver does not have insurance. What do you do in a situation like this?

Uninsured motorist collisions happen more often than you might think. According to the latest data available from the Insurance Information Institute, approximately 13 percent, or one in eight, motorists were uninsured in the United States in 2015. Even if a person has insurance, his or her coverage might not fully cover the costs of the damages sustained in an accident. If you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist, here are a few tips to follow:

In fact, in many cases, smaller breeds can be more aggressive, due to a heightened fight-or-flight response. If a dog does, in fact, bite another individual, the dog’s owner will usually be held liable for any damages caused by his/her animal. Further, in some cases, the animal may be ordered to be put down. Retaining the services of an attorney having experience in dealing with injuries allegedly caused by dog bites can be critical to recovering compensation.

Instances of dog bites happen all the time, although more often the victim is a child. Given that children are drawn to animals, and in light of the fact that, sometimes, children may tease the animal to the point of annoyance, triggering a response, one issue that sometimes comes up is that the dog was provoked into biting the injured individual. A discussion of the law in Illinois on dog bites, as well as how provocation affects the result, will follow below.

Legal Standard

In Illinois, if a dog, or other animal, actually, attacks, attempts to attack, or injures any person who is peaceably conducting himself/herself in any place where he/she may lawfully be, the owner of the animal will be held to be liable for any damages to such person, in the full amount of the injury. Further, there are two additional aspects of this law that need to be addressed. First, the injury must have been proximately caused by the animal; thus, if a dog bites an individual, and that individual later trips and breaks his/her leg, the dog owner will not be liable for any costs associated with the fracture. Second, the dog bite must not be the result of provocation.

IL injury lawyerEscalators are a ubiquitous part of today’s life. From allowing people to get quickly and efficiently to train platforms, to traversing the various levels of airports, in many cases, escalators have replaced stairs as the preferred method of traveling between levels. However, escalators are mechanical machines with many moving parts, and, in some case, these parts do not stop moving merely because a human part gets in the way. Further, children sometimes look at escalators as a type of amusement park attraction and will attempt to “ride” the escalator, increasing the risk of an injury. When escalator accidents do happen, retaining the services of an experienced personal injury attorney can be the difference in collecting reimbursement for injuries or being forced to pay out of pocket.

Recently, a Pawtucket, Rhode Island man was killed after falling off an escalator in a mall. A witness told a news crew on the scene that the man was initially “clowning around,” riding on the rail of the escalator, and fell off, hitting his head and suffering severe head trauma.
