Police searching for hit-and-run driver that killed pedestrian

A 39-year-old man was killed on Thursday night in Miami and the police are searching for the driver that fatally struck the man and then fled the scene. The 39-year-old was a pedestrian, and though few details have been provided, the police are asking for the community's help in identifying the negligent and reckless hit-and-run driver. All that is known is that the hit-and-run individual was driving a black Nissan Sentra that has extensive damage to the right side of the vehicle.

Crashes due to drowsy drivers can't be called accidents

The way we talk about collisions on the road is misleading. We discussed this in a post back in June.

As such, seeking compensation for victims and holding someone accountable isn't merely justified. It's demanded.

Is buying a new car with a defective air bag a safe bet?

Mention the name Takata to anyone in Illinois and you'll likely get one of two reactions. The first will be the quizzical look of someone who doesn't have a clue about what you're talking about.

When you're in a car accident, take it one step at a time

In the immediate aftermath of a car accident, any central Illinois resident would be rattled.

The Illinois legislature, controlled by the Democrats, is still in a tug of war with the governor over the state's budget. But there is apparent agreement forming around another significant issue -- the easing of criminal penalties for possession and use of marijuana.

What rights do I have if my car is recalled?

Whenever you climb into your personal vehicle, or any other vehicle for that matter, you have a right to expect that it's equipped with all the safety bells and whistles mandated by law. Seat belts are a must on most vehicles these days, even those that predate the 1960s. In the 1990s, air bags became standard equipment in all cars and light trucks.

Do car accident settlements adequately compensate head trauma?

If you survived a crash with no broken bones, you might have good reason to consider yourself lucky. However, other injuries may be less visible, but potentially just as intrusive. Specifically, about one in five cases of traumatic brain injuries are caused by a motor vehicle accident. Another 28 percent of TBI injuries are caused by a slip and fall incident.
