August 3, 2011
Accidental Chicago wrongful death events can happen at all times. At times, these Chicago events are simply an accident and no one can be blamed. However, often times, a wrongful death resulting from a Chicago personal injury happens because someone was careless: a driver who drove too fast or was distracted and unable to stop his or her vehicle in time during an emergency situation is too often the case.
In the event depicted below, it appears that perhaps the driver of the vehicle simply could not have avoided the collision when the boy drove his mini bike in front of him.
