4-vehicle accident causes a life-threatening injury

Life in Illinois is not particularly dangerous, but there is always the possibility of an injury caused by someone else. People who spend time at dangerous workplaces or see how much work it takes to keep public spaces like grocery stores clear can attest to the dangers that lurk in surprising places.

Motor vehicle accidents are still one of the top causes of traumatic injuries or deaths in the United States. The Prairie State, at the confluence of several interstate highways and other high-speed roads, has more than its share of collisions in some months. Accidents involving cars or trucks moving faster than 50 miles per hour have a greater risk of causing serious or life-threatening injuries.

A large accident on the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway between Rockford and Chicago caused life-threatening injuries for at least one motorist. The incident began when the victim's car was the first of three struck by a tractor-trailer. The trauma from the collision caused the driver to be evacuated to a hospital in Park Ridge for care.

The accident also caused delays on the tollway and some secondary crashes due to the obstruction, although none resulted in injuries as serious. Although the truck driver may not have committed any crime and may face no criminal charges, the victims of similar accidents may have a case for financial damages if they can prove negligence or recklessness.

An attorney can be very helpful in determining whether an accident involved the liability of a driver who may have caused or exacerbated it. Victims may wish to consult with legal representation to work out the next step.
