During the pandemic, U.S. roadways have seen a decrease in vehicle traffic and an alarming increase in accidents and fatalities. Between quarantines and mandatory shutdowns, there are fewer cars on the road and yet more accidents and fatalities.
Law enforcement agencies across the country point to two contributing factors – speed and reckless driving. Agencies report a significant increase in the number of tickets for drivers going 25 mph or more over posted speed limits. Many are issuing more tickets to drivers going in excess of 100 mph than ever before.
Over the last ten months, Rossiter & Boock Personal Injury Attorney, Zach Pancoast, has helped several central Illinois residents and their families recover compensation for serious injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents – many of which were caused by speeding or careless driving.
Here is a sampling of Zach’s most recent car accident settlements:
- Helped a central Illinois family settle a $1.475 million wrongful death claim for their mother who was killed in a crash involving a United States Postal Service truck.
- Recovered $225,000 for the wife of a Shelby County, Illinois man killed in a car accident.
- With Zach’s assistance, a Springfield, Illinois woman recovered $100,000 for serious injuries she sustained in a semi-truck crash in Sangamon County.
- Helped another Shelby County, Illinois resident recover a policy limits settlement for injuries sustained in a car accident.
