Illinois car accident results in multiple injuries

Owning and operating a vehicle are responsibilities that no individual should take for granted. Sadly, if an individual becomes distracted while driving, a serious accident could take place. Recently, a car accident in Illinois left two people injured.

The unfortunate accident took place on a Tuesday evening. A van and a sedan were involved in the incident. The collision occurred when the van was attempting to make a left turn at a junction of two highways. There were two people in the van who were injured as a result of the crash.

The van was driven by a 55-year-old female who was transported to a local hospital for treatment after the collision. A 78-year-old male also sustained injuries and was transferred to a local medical facility for treatment. Another passenger in the van, a 77-year-old female, was uninjured by the accident according to reports.

The condition of the 47-year-old driver of the sedan was not reported. In the aftermath of the crash, the driver of the van was cited for failing to yield to the other vehicle. There is no information regarding the van driver's blood alcohol content.

The evidence from this incident appears to suggest that the driver of the van was most likely at fault for the accident. The injured passenger may be entitled to monetary damages for his pain and suffering. Whenever an individual is injured in a car accident that was caused by another party's negligent actions, he or she has the right to file a personal injury claim in an Illinois civil court. If the claim is found successful, any awarded restitution can help compensate for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs and lost wages due to missing time from work.
