Here in the United States, underage drinking continues to be a serious safety threat. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 30 percent of high school students admit to consuming alcohol. Every year, more than 4,300 teens die due to alcohol consumption. 

If your child was consuming alcohol at another person’s residence, the adults present are in direct violation of social host liability laws. Perhaps nothing can hurt a parent more than finding out that their child has been injured or killed in an alcohol-related accident.

On the morning of February 28, two men were killed and a pedestrian suffered serious injuries after a collision in the West Side Lawndale neighborhood. The accident occurred when a northbound driver ran a stoplight on the intersection of Kedzie and Roosevelt. After running the red light, the driver ultimately collided with an eastbound truck. Both drivers were dead by the time emergency medical personnel arrived on the scene. A 60-year-old pedestrian was also injured when a piece of debris was launched from the collision site. 

Every year, around 3 million Americans suffer serious injuries in motor vehicle collisions. While some crashes are unavoidable, many, like the collision above, only occur due to the irresponsible actions of reckless drivers. If you or a member of your family are injured in a car accident caused by another driver, seek skilled legal representation as soon as possible.

Every year, millions of Americans are seriously injured in car accidents. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 2.5 million Americans are sent to the emergency room after suffering injuries in motor vehicle collisions each year. 

Life-changing injuries can occur even when a driver or passenger takes all conceivable safety precautions. The impacts of an injury are not limited to the pain itself, as severe injuries can result in costly medical bills and significant loss of work hours.
