    Five potential accident claims in Chicago


    Although less famous than other American cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington D.C., Chicago is a major city with a high tourist rate. Boasting stunning architecture and various events throughout the year, it’s no wonder that Chicago is on many people’s bucket list. However, there are many ways to suffer an injury in the Windy City, so if you want to avoid making accident claims in Chicago, pay attention to the following list.

    Accident claims in Chicago for Car accidents

    2011 saw 109 fatal road traffic accidents, with a total of 119 fatalities and 240 people injured. Fifty pedestrians were among those injured.

    Trams

    Although Chicago residents are used to the trams in the city, tourists may forget to be aware of them and it can be too easy to step in front of them or stand on the tracks, causing serious injury or even death and the need to file accident claims in Chicago.

    Crime

    Chicago has long been known as a dangerous city, and although it’s safer today than at many points in its past, it has a significantly higher murder rate than New York or LA. 2012 saw 506 murders, while there were 436 and 435 in 2010 and 2011 respectively. 2010 also had an aggravated assault rate of 485.5 per 100,000 population, and 673.3 for motor vehicle theft.

    Tornadoes

    Although known as the Windy City, Chicago gets tornadoes rarely. When they do occur, though, they can be deadly, and devastating to buildings and roads.

    Falls

    This type of accident can happen in any location at any time of year. Slipping and tripping is very easy. Whether you fall over a crack in the cement or slip on a wet patch in a shop, it’s very easy to sustain an injury from slips and falls.

    Filing for travel accident compensation

    Holidays should be a time of fun, relaxation and enjoying new sights and experiences.

In these events, you may want to seek compensation for your accident, and Accident Advice Helpline is the company to help you.
