Faulty seat belt a factor in fatal Illinois car crash

Occupants of motor vehicles are likely aware of the potential of being involved in an accident. However,  many passengers choose to protect themselves from the actions of a negligent driver by taking certain precautions, such as ensuring that their seat belts are secured. Unfortunately, a man in Illinois recently lost his life in a car crash that could ultimately result in a wrongful death personal injury claim.

Rear-end motor vehicle accidents leave victims helpless

One of the most terrifying and deadly types of accidents is the rear-end collision. An Illinois driver may be sitting still in traffic, see a vehicle coming too quickly behind and have that helpless feeling just before impact. Often there is nowhere to go and nothing the driver can do to avoid being hit. Many times, these motor vehicle accidents involve multiple vehicles when the impact of the first car sends the second car into a third.
