Several Illinois residents injured in a car accident

Seven Illinois residents have been injured in a car accident involving four vehicles that took place in Chicago. It appears that the reckless driving and high speeds of one driver caused the car accident on the North Side. While the driver only hit one vehicle, the impact caused the vehicle to move forward, therefore impacting two additional vehicles.

Illinois men killed in car accident, family sues

In certain cases, family members of those who die after a driver ingests too much alcohol have the right to sue establishments who may have served someone who was already visibly intoxicated. Two men from the same family lost their lives in one such fatal accident. Now, surviving relatives have filed a lawsuit in regard to the car accident that killed their loved ones. Not only is the other party being sued, but so is the club that served him drinks prior to the incident. It remains to be seen how this will play out in an Illinois courtroom.

Illinois man sentenced for role in drunk driving accident

Some people never learn from their mistakes. They mess up, ignore the consequences and continue on the path they've chosen. This can sometimes have disastrous results for the people with whom they come into contact. That was the case in a recent drunk driving accident caused by an Illinois man who had been arrested multiple times in the past for driving while drunk or without a valid driver's license.

Illinois hit-and-run car accident nearly claims 3 lives

The responsibility that comes with operating a motor vehicle can be one that some people are not willing to deal with once an accident occurs. Drivers who are responsible for an accident where injuries occur should stay at the scene of the car accident until help arrives; however, this is not the case for some drivers. Hit-and-run accidents in Illinois can be particularly dangerous because the driver responsible for the crash is not always caught right away; this can cause longer investigations and a continued risk of more motor vehicle accidents.
