Driver Crashes Into Chicago Restaurant

Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation

An owner of a Chicago restaurant is lucky to be alive after a BMW crashed into his business late Sunday night. The accident occurred in the neighborhood of Little Village on the West Side of Chicago when the BMW sped down Ogden Ave. and struck a police car sitting in traffic. The car then crashed into the restaurant killing both men in the BMW. The police officer was taken to the hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Traffic accidents accounted for 2.36 million injuries in the United States in 2011, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. When drivers are negligent and reckless, their vehicles become a weapon that can cause serious injuries and death. The aftermath of a vehicular accident can be traumatic and stressful. Recovering from the emotional and physical pain should be a victims' top priority after the accident, not the added stress of dealing with an insurance company.
