Avoiding car accidents often requires the ability to multi-task inside one's mind. Specifically, motorists must concentrate on many different things at once. Examples include:
In September 2017, construction work was underway on a hotel in Waukegan. One of the workers hired for carpentry on the project suffered a devastating construction accident in which he fell 20 feet to the ground. Six days later, the carpenter died from what were described as "catastrophic injuries."
Riding a motorcycle is one of America's most beloved activities. Unfortunately, riding comes with the risk of suffering injury should a crash occur. Severe head or spinal cord injuries, crushed or broken bones and infection-prone road rash are just a few examples of the damage a bike crash can cause.
When truck accident victims visit our office, many of them want to know why the responsibility of preventing a crash seems to fall to the private motorist. We understand how it can feel this way because many of the accident prevention tips available to the public are geared toward private citizens.
Many people feel that it is not a big deal to bend or even break the traffic laws in Illinois. Going over the speed limit, having a little drink before driving and sending a text behind the wheel are all examples of breaking the law. Another example of breaking the laws that govern the roadways is fleeing the scene of a car accident. Unfortunately, breaking this law can have deeply tragic consequences.
Losing a loved one in a motor vehicle accident is a difficult reality to bear. If you believe that your loved one's death resulted due to another party's negligence, it is important to explore your legal options.
