Chicago, IllinoisChicago personal injury law firm, Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, is drawing attention to the troubling increase in serious injuries and fatalities from car accidents in Illinois, despite the trend of work-from-home and hybrid working policies. The firm is expressing concern over the surge of car accidents, pedestrian mishaps, and fatalities in the city since 2019, and is calling for a heightened commitment to safety.

Citing studies from the Illinois Department of Transportation, Paul Greenberg shares the troubling trends leading to more dangerous roads and sidewalks. In the article, Chicago car accident lawyer concerned to see more incidences resulting in serious injuries and fatalities available on USAToday.com, Paul Greenberg shares that drowsy driving, prominently occurring between midnight and 6 a.m., was a significant factor behind these accidents. Exhaustion, inadequate rest, and continuous driving led to 81 lives being lost in 72 fatal motor vehicle crashes due to drowsy driving in 2023.

In addition, driving under the influence of alcohol took 399 lives in 2023. These incidents were most frequent during nighttime hours, weekends, and holidays, with male young adult drivers being the primary culprits.

“Drowsy and intoxicated drivers endanger everyone’s lives – motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists alike,” said Paul Greenberg, a leading Chicago car accident lawyer at Briskman Briskman & Greenberg.

Reckless driving and neglect of traffic signs, often influenced by drowsiness, drugs, and alcohol, account for 22% of fatalities, according to the City of Chicago. The law firm is also calling attention to the responsibility of each driver to ensure that all passengers are buckled up before the vehicle moves, as over 20% of accident fatalities in 2023 involved individuals not wearing a seatbelt.

The firm also advises pedestrians to exercise caution and never assume that a driver will yield, stop, or obey traffic signs.
