El actor Gary Busey Golpea a un peatonal anciano con su carro

21415%282%29.jpgTan sólo en 2012, 4,743 peatones perdieron la vida en accidentes de tráfico a través de los Estados Unidos. Además de los que murieron, otros miles sufrieron heridas graves y muchos
se quedaron enfrentando efectos permanentes después de que ocurrió el accidente de peatones. Aunque estos accidentes ocurren en todos los estados en el condado, es más probable que ocurran en las áreas donde hay mucho tráfico peatonal y densa tráfico vehicular sopla mientan. En Illinois, estos accidentes ocurren con demasiada frecuencia en el área de Chicago y los suburbios circundantes.

Cuando ocurre un accidente en Chicago y un peatón se queda con lesiones, la ley en Illinois permite que la víctima o la familia de la víctima soliciten y obtengan una compensación financiera por los daños que resultan. En un caso típico, eso puede incluir facturas médicas que ya se han incurrido, facturas médicas que serán incurridos en el futuro, los salarios perdidos en el trabajo, y el dolor y el sufrimiento. Si tiene preguntas acerca de una colisión que ha afectado su vida, hablando con un abogado de lesiones personales puede permitirle obtener un entendimiento acerca de sus opciones legales y si usted tiene un reclamo válido por sus daños.

Los accidentes de tráfico no discriminan y afectan a las celebridades al igual que los ciudadanos comunes. Actor Gary Busey aprendió esto ayer mientras que la policía en Malibu, California ha confirmado que él estaba detrás del volante de un carro que estuvo involucrado en un accidente de peatones. Según las autoridades, el vehículo de Busey estaba estacionado en un estacionamiento de un supermercado popular el viernes por la tarde cuando Busey entró al carro y trató de revertir. Al parecer, Busey no miro hacia atrás antes de mover su carro y chocó con un peatón anciana que estaba en el área; el peatón tenía la espalda al vehículo de Busey cuando se estaba moviendo y según los informes, no vio el vehículo hasta que la golpeo.

El impacto hizo que la mujer cayera al suelo y la dejó con heridas leves. El personal médico de emergencia fue llamado a la escena con la policía y la mujer fue evaluada por los daños, pero las autoridades han indicado que ella va recuperar. Aún no está claro si Busey se enfrentará a todos los cargos relacionados con la colisión o si cualquier otra acción será tomada por las autoridades.

Busey es conocido como un elemento básico de Hollywood y es recordado por sus papeles en películas como Lethal Weapon, Under Siege, y The Buddy Holly Story. Él ha tenido una larga carrera en la televisión también, y ha sido presentado en los programas de script y programas de realidad en la televisión. Busey estuvo involucrado previamente en un accidente de moto muy publicitado en 1988 que lo dejó con daño cerebral y ha tenido una batalla pública contra el cáncer.

Bob Simón, Correspondiente en 60 Minutos y Reportero de Guerra por Mucho Tiempo ha Muerto en un accidente de Carro

21215.jpgLa tragedia le puede suceder a cualquier persona que esté involucrado en un accidente de carro y no importa si la víctima es un conductor, un pasajero, o incluso un peatón en el área. Cuando ocurre una colisión, los implicados están a merced de la física del accidente y pueden sufrir daños graves y daños permanentes sin importar cuales precauciones fueron tomadas. Desafortunadamente, los accidentes automovilísticos continúan siendo una de las mayores causas de muerte en todo el país y ni Chicago ni el Estado de Illinois están a salvo de esa realidad devastadora.

Hoy, oficiales en el Estado de Nueva York han confirmado un accidente de carro catastrófico, que dejó al menos un hombre muerto. Ese hombre era Bob Simón, un empleado de CBS por mucho tiempo, correspondiente regular en 60 minutos, y conocido por su cobertura de los tiempos de guerra de más de 40 conflictos en el extranjero.

En este momento, la policía ha informado de que Simón, de 73 años, viajaba en el asiento trasero de un Lincoln Town Car que viajaba hacia el sur por la autopista del West Side en Nueva York, cerca de la calle 30 Oeste. El vehículo, conducido por un hombre de 44-años de edad, según los informes, se estrelló contra la parte trasera de un Mercedes en el área que fue operado por un joven de 23 años de edad; el impacto hizo que el conductor del Town Car perdiera el control del vehículo, y causo que se atravesara a través de la carretera y estrellara contra un divisor central. La totalidad de los daños causados durante esos dos impactos causaron que gran parte del Town Car fuera destruido y aplasto a Simón al interior del asiento trasero haciendo que el personal de emergencia tomaran medidas drásticas para sacarlo.

Los personales de emergencia cortaron una porción del Town Car, incluyendo el techo, para sacar a Simón, quien tuvo lesiones en la cabeza y el cuerpo antes de ser trasladado a un hospital local. Desafortunadamente, las lesiones que sufrió eran demasiado graves y Simón fue declarado muerto en el hospital poco después del accidente.

Los que conocieron y trabajaron con Simón, han tomado el tiempo para expresar su tristeza con muchos notando que fue trágico para un hombre, conocido por su integridad periodística y actitud amable, para sobrevivir tantas guerras peligrosas sólo para morir en un accidente de carro en la ciudad que él llamaba casa.

Simón nació en la ciudad de Nueva York y comenzó a trabajar para CBS en 1967. Él comenzó su tenencia en 60 minutos en 1996 y durante su carrera, acumulo 27 premios Emmy, un testimonio de la cobertura y la virtud que el trajo a su profesión.

La policía ha notado que su investigación sobre este incidente está en curso y que todavía están revisando todos los hechos relevantes. El conductor del Town Car resultó herido en el accidente y está recibiendo tratamiento en este momento; no está claro si se enfrentará a cargos penales o civiles por sus acciones antes del impacto. No está claro si el conductor del Mercedes fue herido o si escapó lesiones.

Pedestrian Critical after Chicago Hit-and-Run

22515%282%29.jpgPedestrians are a part of Chicago and are as common of a sight as taxi cabs, L trains, and city buses. Yet despite the fact that pedestrians are on the streets 365 days a year, their rights to walk are often ignored or understated by other types of individuals, including drivers. The laws that apply to Chicago-area drivers and pedestrians are clear and set forth who possesses the right-of-way and at what time. If everyone in a given area obeyed every rule at all times, odds are that a pedestrian accident would never materialize. However, in today's busy world, collisions continue to occur between these groups of travelers and in almost all situations, pedestrians are left to bear the physical damage from a crash.

After an accident happens, a victim who sustains injuries cannot magically erase all the suffering he or she must endure. That victim cannot reverse time or undue the negligent conduct that led to a crash. But the victim may be able to move forward from the incident without greater suffering or additional harm if she chooses to seek financial compensation through the use of a civil claim for damages. This type of relief is available in many of the pedestrian accidents that happen in Chicago and can provide payment for losses like medical bills and missed wages. If you have questions, you may get the answers you need by speaking with a personal injury attorney about the law and its impact on your personal rights.

Chicago police officers were called to the scene of a hit-and-run accident in the city on Tuesday and upon arrival, they confirmed that the suspected driver involved struck a pedestrian. The incident occurred near the 3400 block of North Harlem Avenue shortly before 6:30 p.m. when a four door sedan approached a middle-aged pedestrian and struck the woman. Emergency crews also responded to the incident and assessed the victim for injuries. After an initial assessment in the field, the woman was transported to an area hospital for greater treatment where her injuries were considered critical.

Though a vehicle was involved in this incident, the driver allegedly did not stay at the scene but instead fled the area and has not been apprehended at this time. Police are looking to speak with the driver and with the vehicle's owner if they are not the same person but at this time, no contact has been made. If the driver is located, the police will attempt to determine whether the driver erred in conduct prior to the impact and if so, what charges may be brought in response.

Semi-Truck Crash on I-88 Leaves One in Serious Condition

22015.jpgDrivers in the Chicago area often must use the expressways that surround the city as they travel from one place to another. With Chicago's position situated on Lake Michigan, almost all travel outside of the city itself mirrors the paths of a spider web, connecting the north and south with the west and with all routes terminating at the city itself. So much traffic uses these expressways that it is common to describe not the cardinal direction of travel but rather whether traffic is inbound or outbound with regard to Chicago.

With the heavy use of expressways and interstates unfortunately comes a very real risk of car and truck accidents happening and many of those will result in injuries to the people involved. The dynamics surrounding an impact may determine whether a driver, passenger, or pedestrian is harmed and if so, the extent and nature of the injuries that result; but contrary to popular belief, injuries can happen in any accident, even those that do little damage to a vehicle or that may happen at slower speeds. If you have been involved in a crash or if your loved one was harmed, you may get the information you need by consulting with a personal injury lawyer in the Chicago area.

During Tuesday evening's commute, several people were affected when a truck accident happened on I-88 near DeKalb. Police in the area have reported that a semi-truck traveling westbound collided with two passenger vehicles for unknown reasons, sending both vehicles out of control and causing one vehicle to leave the road's surface and come to a rest in an adjoining ditch. Emergency crews were called to the scene to evaluate the potential victims and were able to determine that the driver of the vehicle in the ditch was in serious condition and needed to be air lifted to an area hospital. That driver's current condition is not clear.

It is also not clear whether the driver of the second car or the driver of the semi-truck were injured in the collision. At this time, police are still reviewing all relevant facts and trying to determine what led to the impact and whether the truck driver or anyone else involved erred prior to the incident.

Staying Safe while Driving in Chicago's Extreme Cold

21915.jpgMany drivers in the Chicago area thought that they avoided a bad winter because the early season was so mild. However, the last few weeks have brought multiple cold fronts and storms to the area, sending the city into a deep freeze that chills to the bone and can make driving difficult.

While you may not be able to do anything about the weather, there are certain steps you can take to ensure that you are as safe as possible when the cold descends on Chicago. With our experience representing the victims of winter weather accidents, the personal injury lawyers at Abels & Annes, P.C. suggest you keep the following in mind before you get behind the wheel:

- When Possible, Plan Ahead: This may seem like basic advice but the benefit of forward thinking cannot be overstated when it comes to driving in the wintertime. Nearly every vehicle is sluggish in the cold temperatures but some of these issues can be avoided by making sure your vehicle is in good working order. If it has been a while since your car has been serviced, consider taking it to your preferred garage or mechanic to get a tune up and make sure there are no underlying issues with your vehicle.

- Check Your Battery: One of the biggest issues when it comes to winter driving is a vehicle that simply won't start. Unlike some other parts of a car, a battery is not designed to last the life of your vehicle and will need to be replaced periodically. Further, some batteries that are strong enough to start a car in summertime will not get the job done in winter because it takes more power to start a car in the cold. If you haven't had your battery tested in some time or if your car is taking longer to start, get the battery checked and consider replacing it if necessary.

- Check Your Tire Pressure Regularly: Tires are a big contributor to the safety of a vehicle and yet too often, drivers overlook the importance of this aspect of their car. Air pressure will be lower in cold conditions and therefore it is even more important to check these readings in the wintertime when low pressure can lead to underinflated tires which can make a blown tire or a collision more likely.

- Be Prepared for Icy Roads: Even if it is not snowing, cold weather can cause icy roads when the temperature falls below freezing. Cold weather can cause slush and snow to freeze and create a hazardous condition for all drivers; often, there is little warning before arriving at an icy patch so drivers are encouraged to assume roads will be slippery and to drive defensively as a result.

- Drive with Plenty of Gas: The last thing you want to happen when the weather is cold is to run out of gas midway through your trip. In winter, traffic can back up and it may take longer to get to your intended destination than planned so make sure you have extra gasoline in your tank. The extra gas can provide an additional benefit by adding weight to your vehicle which may make it easier to handle and control on snow or ice, so before you hit the roads, consider filling up your tank.

5 Car Chain Reaction Accident Caused by Running Red Light

21815.jpgDrivers in the State of Illinois are eligible to begin being licensed to operate a motor vehicle at the age of 16. But simply being of age is not enough to qualify a motorist for a license. Instead, a driver must pass tests and demonstrate that he or she is capable of exercising the skill and judgment needed to be safe while behind the wheel. Additionally, all drivers who operate in Illinois, regardless of when they were licensed, must agree to follow all applicable laws and rules of the road. This includes obeying posted speed limits, heeding traffic signals, and driving on the proper side of the road.

Failure to follow traffic laws can lead a driver to receive a traffic ticket, a criminal charge, or worse. But in addition to any punishments that may be levied by local authorities, the fallout can become more severe if an at-fault driver causes a collision that ends in injuries to one or more individuals involved. In these cases, victims can seek financial compensation for their suffering and a driver who caused the collision may be held personally liable for those damages. If you have questions following a car accident, speaking with a personal injury attorney may help you understand your options including whether you have a valid claim.

A collision on Saturday is now being blamed on a driver who may not have obeyed a red light, according to local police. The incident happened at Oakton Street and Prospect Avenue in Park Ridge shortly after 12:00 p.m. and may have started when a woman failed to stop for a red light, entering the intersection against traffic and causing a collision.

The car believed to have run the light turned onto its side and collided with a third car waiting near the intersection. That second impact then pushed the third car into a fourth and fifth vehicle and caused at least two people to sustain injuries.

The driver of the first car and one of the other drivers were assessed at the scene and transported to area hospitals for treatment where their current conditions are not clear. However, both victims are expected to survive.

Police have reported that the suspected at-fault driver claimed that her brakes failed and that is why she was in the intersection allegedly after the light turned red. Police are reviewing that possibility at this time as well as several other scenarios but not official conclusions have been made; however, they have confirmed that the first driver has been cited for operating without a license and for running a red light.

Accidente de Solo un Carro en el I-80/94 Cerca de Gary Mata a 3, Hiere a 2

2915.jpgAl entrar a un vehículo en el área de Chicago teniendo la intención de ir como pasajero, usted le da el control sobre su propia seguridad personal a la persona que va manejar su vehículo, así como los otros conductores en la carretera. Adicionalmente, usted debe confiar que el carro en que usted se está montando está seguro y en buenas condiciones y que cosas como las inclemencias del tiempo no conducirán a un viaje peligroso para usted.

En teoría, los pasajeros pueden pensar en estas cosas antes de entrar en un coche. En sentido práctico, sin embargo, la seguridad se supone y los pasajeros confían en que otros pondrán la seguridad primero cuando conducen en Chicago. Una vez que esté en un vehículo, es poco lo que puede hacer para asegurarse de que no será perjudicado como usted no puede controlar las acciones de los demás.

Con frecuencia, los pasajeros de accidentes de tráfico que se lesionan en una colisión se preguntan que pueden hacer para aliviar su sufrimiento. Mientras que las lesiones sufridas no se pueden borrar, en muchos casos, estas víctimas pueden tener derecho a una compensación financiera por su sufrimiento y pueden buscar este alivio a través del uso de una demanda civil por daños y perjuicios. Si no está seguro de las opciones que puedan existir después de un accidente de carro, puede que quiera hablar con un abogado de lesiones personales para asegurarse de que su comprensión de las leyes locales y estatales está completa y para que pueda obtener la ayuda que necesita.

El domingo por la mañana, un vehículo de pasajeros viajaba hacia el oeste por el I-80/94, cerca de Gary, Indiana, cuando el conductor, un hombre joven de 22 años de edad, intentó pasar un camión. El conductor entró al carril de la izquierda, paso el semi, y luego trató de volver al carril de la derecha, pero perdió el control del vehículo durante el cambio de carril. El vehículo le pego a una barrera de concreto a lo largo del lado del I-80/94, cerca de la salida Cline Avenue y luego volcó, cayendo en un poste en el área que sostiene un signo de autopista.

La policía ha confirmado que el choque fue devastador y como resultado el vehículo se dividido en dos piezas. Cinco personas estaban dentro del carro y todos fueron heridos o murieron; una pasajera de 21 años de edad, fue eyectada y murió en la escena, un pasajero de 20 años de edad murió en la escena, un pasajero de 21 años de edad, inicialmente sobrevivió antes de morir más después en un hospital en el área, y un pasajero varón de 22 años de edad, sobrevivió y está recibiendo tratamiento en este momento en el área de Chicago. Adicionalmente, el conductor resultó herido en el accidente, pero se esperaba que sobreviva.

Wienermobile Involved in Car Accident on Icy Road

21615%284%29.jpgIn 2011, more than 84,000 people were injured in car accidents across the state of Illinois. Many of these collisions happened in some of the most densely populated areas including Chicago where heavy traffic and congested streets are some of the leading causes of crashes. Often, victims in Chicago do not see a car accident until it happens and they can be injured even when they do nothing wrong to cause the collision.

When a car accident happens, damage to a vehicle is likely to result. But in addition to that property damage, injuries may happen and victims may need to get medical treatment to lessen their suffering and to return them to their pre-accident states. It is hard to know the full value of the needed treatment immediately following a collision as some injuries may take time to fully reveal their degree or severity. Consulting with a personal injury attorney can help victims understand whether they are entitled to compensation for their damages and whether they have a valid claim following an accident, regardless of what injuries were sustained.

An incident in Pennsylvania is reminding nostalgic drivers across the country that an accident can happen at any time and at any place. An Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, known for its resemblance to a giant hot dog, lost control on an icy road on Sunday in Enola and collided with a pole near the road's surface. Fortunately, no one was injured in the incident and the Wienermobile only sustained moderate damage to its front end and windshield.

The Wienermobile involved was one of six full-sized models that drive around the country, each assigned to a specific geographic area. In addition to the full-sized vehicles, two mini and food truck models that serve hot dogs can also be found on American roads. Thousands of children across the country have received a wienerwhistle - a whistle shaped like a miniature version of the Wienermobiles - from the drivers of these truckswho are known as Hotdoggers.

In addition to the iconic position the Wienermobile holds, it also has strong ties to the Chicago area. The original Wienermoblie truck was built in Chicago in 1936 following designs by company executive, Carl Mayer and Oscar Mayer is currently owned by Kraft Foods which is headquartered in Illinois.

38 Vehicle Pileup on Kennedy Expressway Leads to Injuries, Road Closures

21615%282%29.jpgPileup car accidents pose a particularly deadly threat to Chicago area residents in the winter months though they can occur at any time during the year. In many situations, however, poor driving conditions and wintery roads lead to an initial impact between two or more cars and from there, the conditions worsen as additional vehicles are unable to avoid the collision and become involved in the chain reaction.

When many vehicles are involved in a crash, it is difficult to understand who is at fault or whether any motorist bears the responsibility for the results of a crash. In some cases, it can take local authorities weeks to sort out the wreckage and to recreate the conditions prior to the collision to determine whether anyone is properly to blame. Victims of these crashes may be forced to deal with the fallout in the meantime and may need to seek medical help for their injuries, leaving them to wonder if anyone will be forced to pay for their bills or whether they will have to continue to suffer long after the accident ends. If a collision has affected your life, you may receive the answers you need by speaking with a personal injury lawyer in the Chicago area who can help you understand the laws as they apply to your case.

On Sunday morning, 38 drivers and numerous passengers on the Kennedy Expressway learned firsthand the threatening nature presented by a chain reaction accident. The incident happened shortly after 10:30 a.m. in the inbound lanes near Armitage and North Avenue exists and involved 38 different vehicles. While the investigation is still ongoing, police suspect that the crash may have begun due to slick roads attributed to the winter weather conditions that struck the city recently.

The crash prompted emergency crews to respond to the scene and 12 victims were evaluated for injuries and taken to area hospitals. Reports indicate that at least one of the victims may have been a firefighter who was there to assist with the crash. While the current conditions of these victims are not clear at this time, all were expected to survive and it was believed that most sustained minor or moderate injuries.

It took crews nearly seven hours to remove all the vehicles involved from the Kennedy Expressway and to reopen all inbound lanes to traffic heading towards the city. While crews were working, warming buses arrived on the scene to temporarily house those who were involved in the accidents but were unharmed; the warming buses were able to occupy space on the outbound side of the expressway and eventually left the scene once drivers and passengers found alternate transportation.

Actor Gary Busey Hit Elderly Pedestrian with Car

21415%282%29.jpgIn 2012 alone, 4,743 pedestrians lost their lives in traffic accidents across the United States. In addition to those that were killed, thousands others sustained serious injuries and many were left to deal with permanent effects after a pedestrian accident occurred. While these crashes happen in every state in the county, they are more likely to occur in areas where high pedestrian and dense vehicular traffic overlap. In Illinois, these crashes occur all too often in the Chicago area and the surrounding suburbs.

When an accident happens in Chicago and a pedestrian is left with injuries, the law in Illinois can enable that victim or that victim's family to seek and obtain financial compensation for the damages that result. In a typical case, that can include medical bills that have already been incurred, bills that will be incurred in the future, wages missed from work, and pain and suffering. If you have questions about a collision that affected your life, speaking with a personal injury attorney may enable you to get an understanding about your legal options and whether you have a valid claim for your damages.

Car accidents do not discriminate and affect celebrities just like they do average citizens. Actor Gary Busey learned this yesterday as police in Malibu, California have confirmed that he was behind the wheel of a car that was involved in a pedestrian accident. According to authorities, Busey's vehicle was parked in a parking lot of a popular grocery store Friday afternoon when Busey entered the car and attempted to reverse. Allegedly, Busey did not look behind him before moving his car and he collided with an elderly pedestrian who was in the area; the pedestrian had her back to Busey's vehicle when it was moving and reportedly did not see the vehicle until it struck her.

The impact knocked the woman to the ground and left her with minor injuries. Emergency medical personnel were called to the scene with police and the woman was evaluated for damages but officials have stated that she will make a recovery. It is not yet clear whether Busey will face any charges associated with the collision or whether any other action will be taken by authorities.

Busey is known as a Hollywood staple and is remembered for roles in movies like Lethal Weapon, Under Siege, and The Buddy Holly Story. He has had a long career on television as well and has been featured on both scripted programs and reality television. Busey was previously involved in a well-publicized motorcycle accident in 1988 that left him with brain damage and has had a public battle with cancer.

Olímpico Bruce Jenner Involucrado en accidente de automóvil Fatal

2715%283%29.jpgAl conducir, una situación puede surgir en un momento que convierte un viaje normal en una pesadilla. Sólo se necesita un automovilista que no preste atención o ser distraído para que sucede un accidente y los resultados de ese accidente pueden afectar a las víctimas por el resto de sus vidas.

La policía de Malibu, California están confirmando una colisión fatal que ocurrió en el autopista Pacific Coast hoy alrededor de las 12:00 pm PST y han confirmado que el ex olímpico y estrella de la TV Bruce Jenner estaba involucrado. Testigos presenciales afirman que Jenner estaba conduciendo un Cadillac SUV y aproximándose a una intersección. Según se informa, un carro blanco en frente de Jenner empezó a frenar para una luz roja pero Jenner supuestamente no frenó y en vez chocó con el carro blanco. El accidente de carro empujo al vehículo blanco hacia adelante a la intersección donde fue golpeado una segunda vez por un Hummer y luego chocó una tercera vez con un Prius en el área. Algunos informes indican que el impacto con el Prius pasó antes del impacto con el Hummer.

El daño causado al vehículo blanco fue particularmente grave y los equipos de emergencia fueron llamados a la escena del accidente. Desafortunadamente, el conductor del vehículo blanco perdió la vida a consecuencia del accidente y ocho personas resultaron heridas en el accidente con lesiones que son de leves a graves. La policía ha declarado que Jenner negó
estar bebiendo antes de que ocurrió el accidente y que él se ofreció a hacerse pruebas de alcohol en la sangre para demostrarlo; los oficiales se llevaron a Jenner para hacerle la prueba
pero los resultados todavía no se saben. Nuevos alegatos indican que Jenner podría haber sido
perseguido por varios paparazzi antes del incidente y que Jenner podria haber estado intentando evitarlos cuando ocurrió el accidente.

Las primeras indicaciones son que Jenner podría haber sido el culpable del accidente, pero la policía no ha indicado si se enfrentará a cargos civiles o de tráfico en este momento. La investigación del accidente permanece activa y podría ser cierto tiempo antes de que lancen conclusiones oficiales.

Jenner era conocido por haber ganado la medalla de oro en el decatlón olímpico en 1976. En los últimos años, emergió a la luz pública de nuevo ya que ha protagonizado varios programas de televisión incluyendo Keeping Up With the Kardashians donde fue representado con su esposa, Kris Kardashian, hijos e hijastros, entre ellos Kim Kardashian. Jenner se divorció de su esposa, Kris Kardashian, en diciembre de 2014, pero el divorcio no finalizará hasta marzo de 2015.
