Motor Vehicle Accidents
Every time a driver gets behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, he or she is accepting responsibility for the safety of everyone else on the road. Accidents can and do happen. According to the latest statistics from the Illinois Department of Transportation, in 2012 there were 886 people killed in Illinois car accidents, and over 60,000 people were injured. When a driver's negligent behaviors or careless actions lead to the serious injury or death of another person, the negligent driver must be held accountable.
