In Illinois, Personal Injury Claims Arise Anywhere
Personal injury claims can arise in any facet of everyday life, claims are not solely limited to auto vs. auto accidents, work related injuries, and slip and fall accidents. Many times people feel that being a spectator at an event offers a level of safety that realistically just isn't there. Over the past few years many instances have arisen where spectators and paying customers were injured while watching a live event, whether that be at auto races, air shows, and monster truck rally's.
Just last week in Illinois serious injuries resulted when a truck accident at a monster truck rally resulted in nine people being injured, two seriously injured. Fortunately this accident did not result in any death. During the show, one of the trucks was crushing cars and on his fourth pass over the cars, the driver apparently lost control and careened into the crowd of onlookers.
With Chicago playing host to the annual air show in August, the potential for injury and disaster is always in the air. While the event has gone on for years without incident the massive crowds and death defying stunts create a recipe for serious potential injury. Joliet hosts many races at the Chicagoland Speedway and has never had an incident where a crash resulted in spectator injury but the potential is always existent. Our office has represented clients in a wide range of injury claims including the tragic and unexpected. If you want to be sure your rights are protected following a tragedy, be sure to consult a lawyer whenever an injury occurs.
