If you were hit by a drunken driver, you may receive damages


Auto accidents happen every day in Illinois. Unfortunately, too many result from an especially bad type of driver negligence -- drunken driving. Drunk driving accidents often injure and kill, but they are considered largely preventable because drivers can choose between the correct and responsible choice of not driving after drinking, and the incorrect and irresponsible choice of driving after they have consumed alcohol.

Auto accidents in Illinois have the potential to severely injure victims, or even result in death. Some accidents occur because of weather and road conditions, but others are the result of negligent actions on the part of drivers, whether they involve recklessness, speeding or driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Drivers who are negligent put their own lives as well as other people's lives at risk. For this reason, they can be held criminally liable and may also be subject to civil lawsuits.

Illinois residents often turn to nursing homes when they can no longer care for older loved ones. An estimated 100,000 seniors now live in 1,300 nursing homes in the state.
