boat accidents, boating safety, DuPage County boat accident lawyer, personal injury claim, car accidentWhile Illinois certainly is not a state on the ocean, many Lombard residents routinely spend summer vacations boating on Lake Michigan and the other Great Lakes. However, sometimes people do not think about the serious boat accident risks that can arise when out on the water. Boats are motor vehicles. Therefore, if people are not careful, serious crashes can lead to life-threatening personal injuries.

Always Wearing a Life Jacket on the Water

The National Safe Boating Council recently introduced a campaign called “Wear It,” which encourages anyone who plans to go boating to take the “Life Jacket Pledge.” What is the pledge? In short, it is a promise to be safe and responsible out on the water. Safety means always wearing a life jacket. Those who take the pledge agree to the following:

DuPage County truck accident lawyer, truck accidents, truck safety violation, DuPage County accident lawyer, truck wreckHow frequently do trucking crashes occur in DuPage County, and do current laws and regulations have any impact on the rate of truck collisions in the state of Illinois? 

A change to Illinois’s truck inspection laws took effect on January 1, 2018, and some safety advocates argue that it could lessen roadway safety in the state. Oppositely, regulators are moving to do away with side-view mirrors on large trucks and to replace them with more advanced technology to help truckers stay safe on the road.

If new inspection laws are in fact resulting in more collisions, could changes to side-mirror regulations help to reduce the overall rate of crashes?

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.

DuPage County auto accident lawyer, ATV crashes, ATV accidents, fatal accident, personal injury claimsHow often do accidents involving all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) occur in DuPage County? When and where do most of these collisions occur, and are certain age groups at greater risk of being involved in a crash?

Motor vehicles come in many different forms, from large trucks to motorcycles. According to the Cornell Legal Information Institute (LII), almost all vehicles that are self-propelled and capable of transporting at least one person are considered motor vehicles as long as they can exceed 25 miles per hour on paved surfaces and have safety features designed for “safe and practical street or highway use.”

Given these terms, is an ATV a motor vehicle? While it might not be safe beyond off-road use, many DuPage County residents make the mistake of assuming ATVs are safe to drive at high speeds on public roads, and crashes occur.

DuPage County car accident lawyer, traffic safety, car crashes, pedestrian injury, personal injury claimAre runners in DuPage County at higher risk of injury in a car crash than pedestrians who are walking leisurely or simply headed to work on foot? According to a recent article in the Chicago Tribune, the laws surrounding where a runner should be on the road can make jogging a complicated form of exercise, and it may place runners at greater risk of getting hurt in a collision with a motor vehicle.

Running With and Against Traffic: What Places a Jogger at Reduced Risk of a Collision with a Car or Truck?

When there is no sidewalk for a runner, should that runner be moving with traffic (behaving more like a motorist) or against traffic (more like a pedestrian who is walking)? That is a question posed by the recent article for situations in which two runners are on the road, jogging in opposite directions. In this scenario, one of the runners is moving with traffic and the other is moving against traffic. Yet who is abiding by the law, and who is at a lower risk of personal injury in a traffic collision?
