DuPage County slip and fall accident lawyer

As December fast approaches, temperatures are dropping, and the snow is falling. While winter wonderlands are perfect for the holiday season, they can also be dangerous. Slip and fall accidents can be quite common around this time of year due to unsafe conditions on the streets, sidewalks, and other walking surfaces. These types of accidents may seem trivial, but they can cause serious injuries, including broken bones, bruising, and traumatic brain injuries.

With 924 truck fatalities in Illinois in 2014, mostly in urban areas, it is clear how much of a danger large trucks can be.

A common occurrence in a truck accident is when a truck “jack-knifes,” which occurs when the driver brakes suddenly and the trailer swings to a ninety-degree angle from the cab, creating an L-shape. The “swing” of the trailer as it moves, will swipe anything in its path, creating deadly consequences for anybody in those vehicles. If this has happened to you or your loved one, seek honest, experienced advice from a personal injury attorney to determine if you have a viable legal case to pursue.
