Most people in Illinois and across the country recognize the importance of tractor-trailers. They are able to move goods across the country relatively quickly and, typically, are driven by well-trained professionals; unfortunately, motor vehicle accidents involving tractor-trailers can have devastating consequences, making it necessary for both drivers of commercial vehicles and those who may encounter them to exercise caution. For example, two men were recently killed in such a crash in Illinois.
For all the benefits a dog may bring a family, owners must take measures to protect others. Because dogs can act unpredictably at times -- especially around people with whom they are unfamiliar -- owners must ensure that dogs are properly secured or restrained. Unfortunately, one woman was recently hospitalized after suffering dog bites in an attack in Illinois.
Many people choose to rent a vehicle when they are going on a trip. This saves wear and tear on a primary vehicle since the mileage will be put on the rental car. Before you get on the road, you have to think about some important points about rental vehicles.
Every single person who has driven Illinois road has likely been tempted to exceed the speed limit. While people may let the needle on their speedometer creep over posted limits, doing so, especially when it involves driving excessively fast, can result in motor vehicle accidents that have serious consequences. For example, a woman was recently killed in a crash in which speed is suspected to have played a major role.
For many children in Illinois and across the country, going on a field trip with their class is one of their favorite school-related activities. Such opportunities allow them new adventures to which they may not normally be exposed. However, a recently settled lawsuit involved children who were apparently placed in unnecessary danger while on such an outing with their class, resulting in dog bites.
Any driver who has encountered a motorcycle on an Illinois roadway likely knows that such vehicles can be more difficult to spot. As a result, there could be serious motor vehicle accidents involving motorcycles. However, visibility does not appear to have played a role in a recent crash in Illinois.
