Car crashes into Chicago Auto Auction, injuring five

Car crashes into Chicago Auto Auction, injuring five

Date: April 26, 2013

During a recent auto auction, an Illinois man was cited with “driving too fast for conditions” when he hit a group of pedestrians and then struck another vehicle. The incident took place at the Greater Chicago Auto Auction, which operates on a large 138-acre site.

After the car accident occurred, four people were taken to area hospitals while a fifth person was also transported for an “unrelated matter.” According to a deputy police chief, none of the injuries appear to be life-threatening, and the accident is being described as “minor.”┬áIt is never easy being involved in an auto accident, especially if you are struck by a vehicle as a pedestrian. When these incidents occur, it is important to know your legal rights as you should be entitled to some type of compensation if the motorist who caused the accident is deemed to be negligent.

Since every state has their own laws and stipulations to determine a person’s level of negligence while operating a motor vehicle, it is best if you consult a personal injury lawyer that deals with auto accident injuries. Speaking to one of these lawyers will help you determine whether or not you have any legal recourse to pursue monetary damages based on the negligence of the motorist who caused your accident.

If you do feel like your accident could have been avoided if the other motorist had paid closer attention to what they were doing, hiring a personal injury lawyer will enable you to attempt to collect damages that can be used to pay your medical bills and provide you with compensation for your trauma.
