After an accident, you may have the question - is a tire blowout an at-fault accident? Depending on the cause of the blowout, you may be able to prove that the other driver, a maintenance provider, manufacturer, or seller was at fault for your accident. You may be able to claim compensation for your damages from the person who was at fault.
Can you sue a drunk driver after an accident? If the fact that the driver was impaired caused the accident, then you can sue the drunk driver. Drunk driving accidents can have life-changing consequences, often resulting in serious injuries or even fatalities. Such events can abruptly halt your life as you know it. However, if you were not the one driving under the influence, you shouldn't have to pay for the mistake. Luckily, the law allows you to claim compensation if a drunk driver hits you.
After suffering injuries in a car accident, seek medical attention without delay. This will enable you to undergo a thorough examination and receive treatment for physical injuries resulting from the accident. Seeking immediate medical care can also help in creating a detailed medical record documenting your injuries, which can be used to substantiate claims for compensation that you may wish to make later on.

New Tool in the War on Texting and Driving

Your Chicago Injury Attorneys at Grazian and Volpe make a good living from the negligence of those who text and drive and cause car accidents and truck accidents. However, we would certainly prefer our clients and the general public stay safe and avoid personal injury. We may be lawyers but we still are humans!

New Tool in the War on Texting and Driving

I just spent 20 hours driving cross country to get my youngest daughter off to her first year of college. My wife and I witnessed  many car drivers of cars and trucks who were texting while driving at speeds well over 60 miles per hour. The majority of these drivers were truck drivers. It was so prolific that we started a car game competition to see who could spot the most truck drivers texting. Unfortunately, we found most truck drivers were texting and the competition was to find the drivers that were not texting! Studies show that this is more dangerous than drinking while driving and more likely to cause serious personal injury and wrongful death. Yet texting while driving appears to be on the increase.

I was very pleased to see a recent article in Investor’s Business Daily which reported the invention of a new deivice designed to prevent this dangerous practice. Anna University researchers in India have found a way to detect when someone is texting, and then jam the phone. The device uses a radio-frequency identification chip to find out if the vehicle is moving and whether the driver is texting. Unlike similiar devices, this technology can tell the driver from a passenger and jam only the driver’s phone.

On the highways and in South Chicago we have a huge amount of truck traffic. Your Chicagoland Accident Lawyers at Grazian and Volpe beg that you drive defensively and be aware of drivers who are texting while driving. Remember, it is always better to stay safe, but if you can’t stay safe, stay with Grazian and Volpe, your Chicago and South Chicago accident lawyers for over 30 years!
