Winter conditions, snow plows, busses, disabled cars, and emergency vehicles bring increasing traffic, and distractions, to our winter driving. And, the freezing and
thawing of wet roads results in potholes. Dangerous potholes. The road itself becomes a threat to cause tire blowouts, wheel damage, accidents, and injuries.
The holiday season is in high gear and with it come unique risks to one’s safety and well-being. There are a lot of disruptions from normal routines. Whether you plan to spruce up your home…
The number of car crashes in Illinois is nothing short of alarming. Even more alarming to us at Friend, Levinson & Turner, LTD, is the fact that many people involved in these car crashes don’t understand the process of filing a police report. We cannot stress how important it is to know how and when police reports are filed, especially since there are state laws at play and you could be hit with a fine or jail time if you don’t comply (even due to a lack of knowledge).
Holiday Season is beginning and with it comes some unique risks to one’s safety and well-being. We’re rushing, distracted, and stressed. Time is closing in for finding those special holiday gifts. We’re driven to make one more stop at the mall, schedule dinner with friends, check out a sale, decorate the house, and attend a school concert. It is overwhelming.
Though no one can predict or really expects to get involved in an auto accident, let alone deal with the aftermath of one, they sure do happen. You may not be able to predict one, but you can prepare for one. The likelihood of an auto accident is higher then you think, check out these stats:
Halloween is one of the most exciting holidays of the year and is loved by children and adults alike. Even with the thrill of dressing up, the candy, and the scary pranks, it is important to be aware of the dangers of Halloween.
The attorneys at FLT Law know that while nobody gets in the car planning to have an accident, having a plan beforehand in the event of a tragedy is a necessity. That way, if and when the unthinkable happens and you find yourself in an auto accident in the Chicagoland area, you aren’t caught unprepared. Our easy-to-follow guide will take you through several important steps you and your family should take after an auto accident, including everything that must be documented:
It’s a technological marvel – Autonomous Vehicles (AV) and cars with Autopilot on the street. Radar and cameras scan the road to keep the car within lanes. It brakes and accelerates to avoid and pass other vehicles automatically.
It’s back-to-school time and children across Illinois are riding school buses to school, on field trips, and for after-school activities. These buses are transporting our children five days a week, twice a day, frequently in heavy rush-hour traffic. The risk of collisions, accidents, and injuries to our children is considerable. It’s scary.
It’s summertime and construction season again in Chicagoland. Most drivers cringe when they see the orange barrels and blinking arrows. Streets are being repaired, lanes reconfigured, trucks merging, temporary concrete barriers appear, and orange cones seem to pop up everywhere. It’s not just annoying – it’s dangerous.
