Protection from Auto Accidents and Personal Injury in Waukegan, Illinois
To date, approximately 25 million people have lost their lives due to auto accidents and countless others have sustained serious personal injury. Many of these accidents could have been avoided if it were not for the negligence of other drivers. Some of the most common causes for auto accidents include distractions while driving, driving while intoxicated, fatigue, and road rage.
There are more distractions to drivers today than ever before. Billboards, radios, cell phones, and dash panels all compete for our attention while driving. Unfortunately, these distractions can harm ourselves and other drivers.
Alcohol and Intoxication
Despite numerous ad campaigns and other attempts to make our roads safer, people still make the choice to drive under the influence instead of finding a taxi. Sadly enough, drunk drivers pollute our roads and cause harm to other drivers and in some cases death.
Commercial truckers and independent drivers both cause accidents when they are tired. When our bodies are fatigued our reaction time suffers and some people even become unconscious as they drive. Falling asleep at the wheel is an offense that often harms other motorists. If you have been in a car accident due to someone else’s inability to stay awake, you have the right to compensation.
