Failing to adhere to traffic signals and signs prior to entering an intersection can be a dangerous decision. Car accidents involving similar forms of negligence can have disastrous results that could leave those involved in the hospital recovering from severe injuries. A recent accident that took place at an intersection in Illinois has reportedly left several individuals with injuries.
There are a multitude of scenarios in which a driver may lose control of a vehicle and drift off the road. Even if a car veers only slightly off path, making the transition back into the lanes of traffic can be challenging and should a driver panic and overcorrect, the results could prove disastrous. A recent car accident involving similar circumstances has reportedly claimed the life of a man in Illinois.
Many construction workers in Illinois and elsewhere are constantly performing job-related tasks at heights with the use of lifts or scaffolding. Should the equipment workers use prove faulty or defective, the risk of a fall from heights is ever present and the consequences of a similar incident could prove catastrophic. Two workers suffered injuries after the scaffolding they were working on collapsed during a recent workplace accident in another state.
