The year is not even half over and there have already been 137 fatal crashes in Illinois. Car accidents resulting in serious injury or death are not uncommon in Illinois – especially in populous areas like Cook County and DuPage County. Distracted driving, drunk driving, and other forms of negligent driving are often to blame for these accidents. However, the party who is liable for a car crash is not always another driver. In fact, sometimes the liable party is a municipality or government entity.

We trust that the government will design and construct roads that reduce the risk of car accidents. After all, this is what our taxes help pay for.

Inadequate road markings, unsafe shoulders, unreasonably complicated intersections, or dangerous exit ramps may all be examples of poor road design. Insufficient or conflicting road signs and traffic signals may increase the chances of an accident at an intersection. Roadside hazards, hidden obstructions, and unmarked construction zones may also be the fault of a government entity.

Illinois is one of the top commuter states in the country. Every day, tens of thousands of people drive in and out of Cook County alone. And for the most part, many of these trips end uneventfully.

In fact, Illinois ranks as the 13th best state for commuters to drive in, according to research by WalletHub. However, considering the number of cars there are on the road, the unpredictable weather and the time we spend in our cars on these commutes, it is no surprise that accidents happen.

The numbers are sobering and unquestionably dismal.

Moreover, they recur annually with numbing regularity.
