Automobile accidents can cause extreme physical injury to victims. And, in addition to physical pain and suffering, these injured victims must deal with large and unforeseen medical bills, lost wages, and emotional trauma.
A trucking accident occurs when large trucks (10,000+ lbs.) collide with other vehicles or pedestrians. Around 500,000 trucking accidents occur every year in the United States. Of these, approximately 5,000 trucking accidents result in fatalities. In fact, one out of every eight traffic fatalities involves a trucking accident.
Riding a motorcycle poses serious risks-without the physical protection cars offer. Motorcyclists are more susceptible to serious injury posed by other drivers, defective roadway design, harsh weather conditions, and product defects. Victims may sustain broken limbs, road rash, traumatic brain injuries, and other harm, including death.
Pedestrians rights in Illinois require that drivers stop for them at all crosswalks. Even still, careless drivers continue to hit people crossing or walking along Chicago streets, causing serious injury and death.
