Auto accidents —mostly involving cars, trucks, and motorcycles, but also including trains and planes— are the number-one source of serious injuries in the United States, including devastating brain and spinal cord injuries. There are as many different types of auto accidents as there are automobiles. The end-result of a major auto accident in the Chicagoland area is usually the same—deaths, serious injuries, and/or extensive property damage. However, there are characteristic ways that you can be involved in an auto accident while driving (or being a passenger in) a car, truck, motorcycle, or other type of passenger vehicle, as follows:

  • Car accidents, involving anything from subcompacts to luxury SUVs, are far and away the most common cause of serious injuries on the roads and highways in the greater Chicago area. The most serious auto accidents are head-on collisions, but rear-enders or side impacts can be equally devastating, depending on the speeds of the vehicles involved.
  • Truck accidents rarely result in injuries to truck drivers, who are protected inside a roomy cabin and usually don’t sustain the brunt of an impact. However, the drivers of automobiles or motorcycles that collide with a truck—or lose control of their vehicles because of the truck driver’s negligence—are in a much worse position.
  • Motorcycle accidents almost always result in serious injuries, since motorcycle riders are relatively exposed and helpless and auto and truck drivers may behave irresponsibly when passing motorcycles. If the cyclist is not wearing a helmet, the result can easily be a serious brain or spinal cord injury.
  • Train and plane accidents while far less common, train and plane accidents involve dozens, or even hundreds, of individuals at the same time. Most plane accidents result in fatalities rather than injuries, but a high-speed train collision or derailment can have serious medical consequences for the passengers involved, as well as other people in the vicinity.

Experienced Chicago Auto Accident Lawyers

We often have a routine every time we get into our automobiles: putting things down, settling into our seat, buckling the safety belt, starting the car and starting the journey. Although we are aware that auto accidents can happen, we don’t typically think twice about them happening to us. But when auto accidents do happen, they change the lives of those involved, and their loved ones, in a heartbeat. Serious physical injuries, emotional trauma, mental trauma, and property damage may take months, years, or even a lifetime to recover from, if recovery is even an option.

Negligence in Illinois auto accident cases is often defined as the failure to act with the care expected of a reasonable person. For people operating motor vehicles in Illinois, this definition often encompasses a wide array of situations, from a person distracted by a cellphone, to speeding, to reckless driving, to driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
