Lombard, IL car accident attorney speeding

The roads in Illinois -- especially those closer to larger cities such as Chicago -- are rarely empty. They are usually teeming with cars full of people trying to get to work, school, appointments, and everywhere else. Lately, however, the roads have been much less crowded -- and noticeably so. This was to be expected because of the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the country. Illinois issued a stay-at-home order in mid-March that prohibited non-essential travel and work, which greatly cut down on vehicles on the road. Despite the drop in traffic, the number of speeding tickets and speeding-related accidents has increased greatly. An Illinois car accident injury lawyer can assist you with pursuing compensation if you are injured in a vehicle crash caused by speeding.

Traffic Fatalities Increase in Illinois

Most people know that speed is one of the factors that can increase the severity of a car accident. Typically, the faster the speed you are traveling at when you get into the accident, the more severe the damages are. A speed-related car accident can cause serious injuries to yourself and your passengers, including broken bones, spinal cord damage, brain damage, and even death in some instances.

IL injury lawyerEach year, there are millions of car crashes that happen throughout the United States. According to the latest statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were an estimated 6,452,000 traffic crashes that were reported to police in 2017. Of these crashes, about 1,889,000 of them resulted in injuries and more than 34,000 of the crashes resulted in at least one fatality.

Car accidents happen when you least expect them and they can cause serious injuries and even death. It has been noted that many, if not most car accidents occur because of some sort of driver error. Here are a few tips to keep you safe while on the road and decrease your chances of being in a car accident:

Pay Attention to the Task at Hand

Distracted driving has become a large problem with the rise of smartphones and other electronic devices. When you are behind the wheel, your full and undivided attention should be on driving and the road in front of you. Getting distracted by your cell phone or other things in the car can cause you to be unaware of things happening outside.

IL injury lawyerTraveling in a car or other motor vehicle always includes the risk of being in a car accident, but if drivers use care to operate their vehicles responsibly, this risk is relatively small. Unfortunately, not all drivers appreciate the need to act reasonably, and some even engage in reckless driving, which puts everyone in the vicinity in danger of being injured. Traveling at high speeds, weaving erratically in and out of traffic, and ignoring traffic signals are all examples of behavior that could be reckless. If another driver or passenger is injured because of a person’s reckless behavior, he/she will likely face legal liability for the harm caused.

The accidents that result from reckless driving are some of the worst on the road, and can greatly alter the lives of the victims. A man in Elkville was recently arrested for reckless driving near local schools, following multiple instances of erratic driving, including speeding past school buses unloading children. While, thankfully, no one was hurt, this situation illustrates how serious reckless driving can be, and shows that it can implicate not only liability for a personal injury but also criminal consequences if egregious. A discussion of what it means to engage in reckless driving, and the potential liability these drivers face if an accident occurs that results in injury, will follow below.

What Counts as Reckless Driving?

Statistics show that everyone should expect to experience a car accident at some point in their lives, typically three to four per person, though most are not serious. When serious accidents occur, and especially if it appears a driver was operating his/her vehicle in blatant disregard of others on road, moving violations are likely. Whether it be speeding, swerving between lanes without signaling, or other forms of erratic driving, putting others at unnecessary risk is often classified as reckless driving.
