As fatal car accidents continue to rise, Chicago car accident attorney, Paul Greenberg of Briskman Briskman & Greenberg cautions motorists and pedestrians to exercise caution at all times.

In the wake of a troubling report from the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) indicating a continued upswing in fatal car accidents in 2023, prominent personal injury law firm, Briskman Briskman & Greenberg, is urging the community to be vigilant and practice extra caution on the roads.

Paul Greenberg, Managing Member of Briskman Briskman & Greenberg expressed his concern about the escalating figures and the safety of residents. He emphasized that the firm's duty extends beyond courtroom walls, and into community safety education. “We are not just lawyers,” Greenberg said, “but advocates for the well-being of our community. The rising trend in fatal car accidents in Chicago and statewide is very alarming.”

The IDOT report shows a disturbing upward trend in fatal car accidents across Illinois, marking another year of tragic increases. The number of fatal accidents in Illinois increased from 1,147 to 1,169. These fatal car accidents claimed the lives of 1,269 people.

Paul Greenberg, a Chicago car accident attorney with decades of experience said, “The number of fatalities between 2019 and 2023 has increased in nearly every category. Just four years ago, 12 bicyclists lost their lives in Illinois… last year, the IDOT reported over 40 fatal bike accident victims.”

With a 230% increase in bike accidents and increases in fatal truck, motorcycle, and pedestrian accidents, it’s clear that Chicago roads have only become more dangerous in the years following the COVID-19 pandemic.
