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.

Pedestrian Accidents with Cabdrivers Report Reckless Taxis to 311

Pedestrian Accidents with Cabdrivers; Everyone Should Report Reckless Cabbies by dialing 311

Cabdrivers were involved in 28 percent of pedestrian crashes finds a study commissioned by the City Department Transportation. Commissioner Gabe Klein said in a Chicago Tribune article of August 15, 2011 that the majority of taxi drivers in Chicago pose a public safety menace. He has vowed to implement strict reforms with the help of the Chicago Police Department and the Chicago Department of Business Affairs and Consumer Protection, which regulates the taxi industry. Pedestrians and other drivers can help by calling 311 to report reckless cab drivers.  Any cab driver receiving three or more complaints will be investigated.

Pedestrian Accidents with Cabdrivers Report Reckless Taxis to 311

While these reforms are welcomed, the attorneys at Grazian and Volpe know that pedestrian behavior is a key to preventing pedestrian-vehicle crashes.  Most accidents are caused by drivers failing to yield to pedestrians despite laws and traffic signals requiring them to do so.  We know from our more than 25 years advocating for injured pedestrians that the pedestrian sustains the greatest personal injuries-regardless of whether or not they were obeying the laws and signals. We caution all our clients to be mindful of all traffic signals and laws to stay safe and avoid injury and hope that more will report reckless cab driver behavior to 311 to help the City of Chicago in its quest to keep pedestrians safe.
