Illinois car accident claims the life of mother and young son

When a loved one is lost unexpectedly, unanswered questions surrounding the tragedy can be difficult for the family to bear. An investigation is ongoing following a recent car accident in Illinois that has claimed the life of a mother and her young son. Depending on the details discovered in this case, the driver could be facing a wrongful death lawsuit in civil court.

Illinois police are currently investigating a fatal car accident that happened over a recent weekend. According to reports, the crash occurred around 1:00 a.m. on a Saturday morning. A Jeep, driven by a 19-year-old man, apparently struck a guard rail and overturned. The vehicle ultimately landed on its top in a nearby creek bed.

The driver of the Jeep was transported to a local hospital for treatment. His injuries were not thought to be life-threatening. Two other occupants of the vehicle, a 34-year-old woman and her 9-year-old son, were killed in the crash. No further details regarding the cause of the accident have been released at this time.

Should an investigation into this tragic car accident show that driver negligence was a factor, the surviving family members of the victims may elect to file a wrongful death claim in civil court. Illinois residents reserve the right to seek financial reparations for losses suffered in an accident resulting from another party's negligence. While no amount of money can fill the void likely felt by the family of these young victims, it can provide them assistance with the expenses incurred as a result of the accident. Relieving these financial burdens may be an important first step in their recovery process.
