You can suffer these injuries in a Chicago car accident

Having the freedom to drive anywhere you want in Chicago is great. You can get to and from work, school, the movies, the store and restaurants with little problems. But, what if you get into a car accident? Do you know what type of injuries you might suffer? People don't tend to think about how seriously injured they could get if involved in a car accident.

Fatal crashes caused by driver drug use are quickly increasing

A new report just released by the Governor's Highway Safety Association (GHSA) suggests that the number of fatal car crashes that can be blamed on drug use are steadily increasing.

3 types of distracted driving

When most of us hear the term "distracted driving," the first image that comes to mind is of a careless person behind the wheel with a cellphone is hand. Certainly, this is the case many times and too common of a trend among drivers. However, there are more ways in which drivers can be distracted, and they all have the potential to cause an accident.

Distracted drivers need to get focused

Like most big cities, Chicago, Illinois, has an enormous number of vehicles on the roads. This, of course, correlates with a substantial number of motor vehicle accidents each year. While current inclement weather is making driving more dangerous, there is something else that is making driving dangerous too, and that is distracted driving.

Can I research the safety of a tour bus company?

A tour bus can hold dozens of passengers, and it's an efficient way to get from points A to B, but what if the tour bus isn't safe? What happens if the tour bus has problems with its brakes, steering or has other safety issues? A poorly maintained tour bus can end in a disastrous accident for the passengers riding inside it -- resulting in catastrophic injuries and even death. So, before you choose a tour bus company for your next group outing, be sure to investigate the safety of the company.
