Yet another wrong way car accident on Lake Shore Drive has occurred, resulting in the death of a promising young law student. This is the third incident of driving the wrong way on this busy Chicago expressway in recent years.

Large semi trucks often carry heavy or dangerous cargo across the country. If the operators or drivers of these trucks try to cut corners or take risks in transporting materials, they can put other motorists in serious danger if they cause a truck accident. Because of their size, power and weight, trucks can do significant amounts of damage to property and people in the area if they crash. When a semi-truck driver's negligence results in other drivers having accidents, those drivers may want to consult a qualified attorney to inquire about pursuing damages.
