Niles Car Accident Lawyer

The Niles auto accident injury attorneys of Zneimer & Zneimer, P.C. provide legal representation to residents of Niles, and surrounding Chicago communities who were killed or sustained injury as a result of an automobile accident. Niles is a quaint region in Cook County Illinois, and within the Niles and Maine Townships. First incorporated in 1827, with a mere 500 residents, Niles still remains a relatively unpopulated area, with its current population not yet having exceeded 30,000. Although car accidents occurring on public roadways, may be more uncommon in the less densely populated region of Niles when compared to more heavily populated cities in Cook County, auto accidents still remain a likely occurrence. Our accident lawyers have experience representing clients involved in all types of auto accidents, whether such accident occurred on a public roadway, parking lot, or private driveway.

Car accidents, by their very nature, can be sudden and unexpected. Often times, it is not necessary to travel far from home for a car accident to occur. In fact, more than half of all car accidents occur within five miles from home. Backover accidents, or accidents where a motor vehicle reverses over an unseen person, are likely included within this 50% given that a large percentage of backover accidents occur in one’s own private driveway, or in the road adjacent to the private driveway. Backover accidents may occur in various ways, such as when the driver fails to maintain proper lookout while proceeding in reverse, or when the property owner fails to trim or remove trees or shrubbery that may be obstructing the driver’s view. Our Niles accident lawyers understand the various ways in which a backover accident can result in injury.

Backover accidents can be tremendously traumatic because the victims involved are often bicyclists and pedestrians. Some of the most vulnerable people susceptible to backover accidents are children. In the United States, 50 children are backed over every week. The predominant age of backover victims is one-year-old. And in over 70% of these incidents, a parent or close relative is the driver behind the wheel.

Given the average weight of a car is approximately 4,500 pounds, it is easy to conceive the severity and variation of injuries that may occur as a result of a car backing over a pedestrian or bicyclist. Unfortunately, many backover accidents often result in death. Nearly 230 people are killed and 13,000 injured due to backover accidents every year. Many new cars include rearview technology, but after-market rearview cameras and sensors can be installed on any vehicle. Other safety tips include always walk around and behind a vehicle before moving it, teach children not to play around or behind a vehicle, keep bikes and other equipment out of the driveway, and roll down the driver’s side window when backing up to hear if someone is warning to stop.

Our injury and accident attorneys represent both the injured, and the family members of persons killed in backover accidents, and other automobile accidents.
