Safety at a Metra Station

metra

Millions of trips every year take people from the suburbs into the city of Chicago and back home again. Metra trains pull into many town squares throughout the suburbs. The Union Pacific Northwest line runs through downtown Arlington Heights with an additional stop at Arlington Park. Families heading to Blues Fest, the theater, and sporting events every day. Metra serves more than 100 communities with 241 stations on 11 lines running from Chicago’s downtown. And although safety is Metra’s #1 concern, unfortunately, accidents happen.

Fatalities and Metra Related Deaths

The above Metra related deaths are only five of the many more that occurred in the last year. In November 2017, Metra acknowledged that many of the deaths that occur on their tracks are related to suicide. According to Chicago Magazine’s Metra Is Trying Something New to Curb Its Suicide Problem, “few rail services have felt the urgency to address the issue as intensely as Metra, which tallied 23 confirmed or suspected suicides along its routes from January to late October” of 2017.

According to Ian Savage, a professor at Northwestern University professor, the Federal Railroad Administration did not perform a baseline gauge of railroad transit deaths until 2011. He states that  “It’s like a sports game, and we’re walking in at the first quarter.”

Where Do These Accidents Occur?

Unfortunately, no Metra line is immune from these accidents. Below are several examples of such unfortunate deaths:

  • On Tuesday, February 6, 2018, Tracey Currie, a 29 year-old man, was struck by a Metra Union Pacific-North Line train at the North Chicago Station while walking towards a waiting car. Currie later died.
  • On Monday, March 5, 2018, a 15-year-old from Western Springs was killed when he was struck by a cargo train on the BNSF tracks just West of the Central Avenue pedestrian crossing. The police’s preliminary investigation suggested that the 15-year-old had ran into the path of the train that was traveling East.
  • On Wednesday, March 7, 2018, an express train struck and killed a pedestrian near the Riverside station heading towards Downers Grove. According to the initial investigation and a statement made by Riverside police Chief Tom Weitzel, it is suspected that “a male pedestrian stepped in front of the train.”
  • On Tuesday, March 27, 2018, a man was struck by a southbound Metra train when he stepped onto the tracks. The engineer operating the train was unable to stop the 70 mile-per-hour train in time.

Preventing Suicides on Metra Lines

In September 2017, Metra made a statement at the platforms of its 11 lines. They added posters stating “You Are Not Alone” along with a hotline number. Metra made their statement in accordance with Breaking the Silence. This program includes a daylong symposium bringing together mental health experts, rail officials, and safety advocates.

According to Lanny Wilson, chair of the DuPage Railroad Safety Council, the fact that Metra is having this conversation is admirable.  “Just a few years ago, people said, ‘There’s nothing we can do about suicides in rail deaths.’ Now it’s: ‘What are we going to do about suicides?’”

While suicides do account for a portion of the Metra related deaths that occur yearly, many also die due to a lack of safety.

How to Be Safe While Waiting for the Train

METRA

According to Metra’s website, safety is their number one priority. In support of this mission, Metra uses Operation Lifesaver and crossing enforcement blitzes. These programs allow Metra’s Safety Department to work daily to educate the public about the importance of safety. Specifically, Operation Lifesaver directs nearly 1,000 programs for schools, bus drivers, truck drivers, emergency personnel, and other organizations.

To further this mission of providing safe commutes for passengers, Metra is planning to add an additional safety system to the BNSF line in Summer 2018. Positive Train Control, or PTC, aims to stop a train when the train engineer blows a signal or if the train goes above the speed limit. Panels are still being heard regarding the implementation of the new program.

But in the meantime, according to Operation Lifesaver, here are five safety tips to follow when traveling by train:

  1. Always be alert. Trains are fast moving and come out of nowhere very quietly. Be aware of your surroundings, obey warning signs, and use caution and care when utilizing headphones or cellphones.
  2. Never sit on the edge of the train platform. 
  3. Mind the gap on the platform’s edge. Pay attention to painted or raised markings at the platform edge, and stay at least three feet from the train while it is coming in or out of the station. Be mindful of the gap between the train and the platform.
  4. Brace yourself! When on the train, be sure to hold onto a pole or seat. Be sure to mind the directions of the conductor. 
  5. Follow the rules. Be sure to abide by the instructional signs and markings that let you know where to go.
  6. Never, ever cross the tracks! Not only is this illegal, it is also incredibly dangerous.

Steps to Assessing Senior Home Safety

Steps to Assessing Senior Home SafetySenior Home Safety Tips

 

Assessing senior home safety is necessary to identify and eliminate safety risks. Seniors face a variety of safety risks in the home including falls, fires, security breaches, and unattended medical emergencies. If your loved one wants to age in peace independently, follow these tips to assess the safety of his or her home.

 

Prevention First

 

Senior home safety starts with prevention. Taking steps like installing safety grips and other bath aids in the bathroom and sturdy staircase rails can reduce the risk of falls in the home. Also, equip your loved one’s home with emergency preparedness supplies. Place a fire extinguisher and smoke detector in every room. Put important emergency contact information on the fridge, and sign up for a medical alert system if your loved one lives alone.

 

Everyday Living

 

Small changes to living areas can significantly increase senior home safety. Help your loved one be self-sufficient by organizing their home so that important everyday items are easily within reach. Store heavier items at waist level. Clearly mark things like hot water faucets and stove on and off switches. Make sure their home has sufficient lighting in the kitchen and bathroom to make cleaning and cooking easier.

 

Help With Healthy Living

 

Your loved one might also need help keeping track of medications, treatments and therapies, and important healthcare appointments. Clearly label and portion out medications. Create a simple calendar system to help them remember doctor’s visits. Schedule grocery deliveries, so your loved one always has fresh food at home. Small steps like these can make a significant difference in his or her ability to practice self-care.

 

Consider Home Adaptations

 

If your senior has a disability or a mobility problem, it might be time to consider in-home adaptations that are senior friendly. These can increase their overall safety in everyday situations and emergencies. Ramps leading to all entrances are relatively easy to install and can reduce the risk of falls. If your senior is wheelchair bound, consider widening doorways to make navigating the home easier. Adding stair lifts is essential for seniors in wheelchairs living in two-story homes. Another important consideration is the countertop height. Most homes are built with countertops too high for those in wheelchairs. Lowering countertops can help your senior take care of him or herself better.

 

Safety in Numbers

 

Senior home safety doesn’t stop at prevention. Make sure you or someone you trust regularly checks in on your loved one. Frequent visits are especially helpful if your loved one is reluctant to ask for help with simple, everyday tasks like cleaning and cooking.

 

Investing your time and resources in helping your senior live an independent life can be a rewarding challenge. But if your loved one is injured in an accident or a victim of nursing home abuse, it’s crucial to seek legal guidance. A skilled Arlington Heights personal injury attorney with experience handling Illinois nursing home abuse claims can help you identify any liable parties and take steps to seek the compensation your loved one deserves.

Should I Get A Smart Home Security System?

We have all seen the commercials for home security systems. 2,000,000 home burglaries are reported each year in the United States. About 30 percent of all burglaries are through an open or unlocked window or door. In 2013, the average home invasion rate was four per minute. But do you need a home security system?

What Should I Look For in a Home Security System?

In addition to the alarms, home security systems have many additional security measures such as:

  • wall and window sensors,
  • motion detectors,
  • video cameras, and
  • yard signs.

Additionally, modern security systems have additional features as well, such as:

  • fire, smoke, carbon monoxide, and flooding detection,
  • home automation, such as Alexa from Amazon, and
  • power outage backups.

Depending on your needs, you can go with a system that you monitor yourself. Or you can pay a subscription fee to have home surveillance by professionals who will contact your local fire and police departments when alarms are triggered. Of course, the more coverage you have, the more you can expect to pay.

Choosing a Home Alarm System

Visonic, a developer of home security systems, provide a step-by-step guide to aid in your security system decision.

Step 1 

Survey your home and document the number of windows and doors you need protected from possible intrusion.

Step 2

Determine where you want your control panel and keypads. Generally, a convenient location for a keypad is near your front door and close to your bedroom.

Step 3

Measure how far away the windows and doors are from the control panel. The installer will need to wire the systems in some circumstances and knowing this distance will make their life easier!

Step 4

Do you want a monitored security system? Monitored security systems are connected to a central monitoring station that ‘watches’ your home for a monthly fee. If you need a less expensive alternative, install a self-monitoring system. This system will dial your private phone and/or other preselected phone numbers if the alarm system triggers an alarm.

Step 5

Consider your family’s daily habits. Do you often get up in the middle of the night for a snack or to go to the bathroom? Do you have a pet that roams the house? These circumstances influence the type of motion sensors you will need.

Step 6

If you decide you want a home security system, ensure that it monitors your entire house. Each window, door, and device defines a zone and your provider will set up how many zones your home needs.

Step 7

Be aware that if you choose a wired system, the installer will have to drill holes in the walls. If you choose a wireless system, the transmission range must be cover your entire premises. The system must be able to cover the zone farthest from the control panel.

Step 8

Choose a system that works with home safety sensors, such as carbon monoxide (CO) sensors, gas detectors, flood detectors, etc. Likewise, choose a system that can include panic and personal emergency buttons.

Step 9

Pick a user-friendly home security system. Can you program the device? Can everyone in your family learn the system quickly?

By carefully considering all of these factors related to a home security system, you can work together with your security system company to find the best security package to meet your family’s needs.

Deer in the Headlights – Have Car Blinding Beams Gone Too Far?

headlights

When did you last drive at night? Did you leave a sporting event or office party? Were you just enjoying a nice summer night drive? Then you saw two beaming lights heading towards you in the opposite lane. As the headlights shine, sometimes the brightness of the beams send shivers through your entire body. It feels like a burn the back of your retinas. And more troublesome, this dazzling can increase the risk of a car accident.

Car Accident Impact: The Effect of Speed

Car Accident Impact: The Effect of SpeedHow Speed Affects Car Accident Impact

 

Many factors can affect the impact of a car accident, but speed is one of the most important. The effect of speed on car accident impact can be calculated using Newton’s Second Law of Motion as a guiding principle.

 

Newton’s Second Law of Motion says the force (impact) of an object (e.g. a car) on another object (i.e. the car it hits) is equal to its mass times its acceleration (measured using speed as a factor).

 

States and cities set speed limits at the maximum speed a car can travel under ideal conditions while still being safe. At posted speed limits under ideal conditions, a driver should have enough time to try to avoid collisions. When you go over the speed limit, however, not only is it harder to avoid collisions but the impact of the accident will also be more significant.

 

The problem is, the increase in impact is not proportionate to the increase in speed. Let’s say the speed limit is 20 mph and you are going 40 mph. If you strike another car, the force of that impact is not just 100% greater. In reality, the force of the impact increases with the square of the difference in speed, so the impact would be four-fold.

 

Absorbing the Impact

 

Now that you know how speed affects car accident impact, it’s important also to know how that impact is absorbed in a collision. In an accident, the lighter and smaller car will absorb more of the impact than the larger car. This is the reason why truck accidents are often fatal for the driver in the passenger car but not the trucker. Also, it’s good to keep this principle of physics in mind when reviewing crash test ratings and when in the market for a new car.

 

Why Impact Matters in Car Accident Claims

 

In disputed car accident claims, attorneys sometimes have to pull together evidence like pictures of the collision, clocked speeds, and car weights to determine which car was speeding or caused the accident.

 

Beyond just getting your claim paid, car accident impact will greatly affect the severity of your injuries. On average, it takes about 400 lbs. of pressure to break a rib. In a severe car accident, the pressure of just hitting the steering wheel can be significantly greater. Thus, it’s important to understand the physics of car crashes when filing an insurance claim. Knowing the force of impact in your accident can indicate how the cars collided and the extent of your injuries. Insurance companies sometimes try to deny bodily injury claims in fender benders if the car was not seriously damaged. What they fail to recognize is the human body and the bumper of your car can withstand very different impacts. While your bumper may have survived with a small dent, it could have created enough impact to severely injure you.

 

Whenever filing a car accident claim, it’s a good idea to speak with an attorney, especially if the insurance company disputes liability. This is a common tactic, but don’t let it discourage you. A seasoned Arlington Heights car accident attorney can thoroughly evaluate the facts of your claim and pursue compensation accordingly.

 

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, Arlington Heights personal injury attorney Ronald F. Wittmeyer can help. With more than 30 years experience practicing plaintiffs’ personal injury law, we can fight to get the compensation you deserve.

April Showers Can Bring a Flash Flood

flash flood

Of course, April showers bring May flowers. But when that rain comes, we can also get flash flooding near the Des Plaines River and the Fox River. Although home damages are terrible, we forget about what to do if we are on the road during one of these storms.

Flash Flood Warnings

If the National Weather Service issues a Flash Flood Warning for your area, follow these steps:

  • If advised to evacuate, do so immediately!
  • Get out of areas that are subject to flooding. Move to a safe area before flood waters begin. Stay away from low spots.
  • Do not camp or park your vehicle along streams and washes, particularly during threatening conditions.
  • Do not drive if it is not necessary. Check out the steps to follow if you are on the road.
  • Do not try to walk, swim, or play in flood water. You may not be able to determine if there are holes or submerged debris, or how quickly the water is flowing, and you may be swept away. If water is moving swiftly, as little as 6 inches of water can knock you off of your feet! There is also a danger of hazardous materials polluting the water. Also remember that water is an electrical conductor. If there are power lines down, there is a possibility of electrocution.

Turn Around – Don’t Drown

A flash flood is the number one weather-related killer in the United States.

Pay attention to barricades.

If officials have set up barricades to stop you from driving down a road during a flash flood, don’t ignore them by driving past them.

Do not drive through standing water on roads or in parking lots.

The average automobile can be swept off the road in 12 inches of moving water. Additionally, roads covered by water are prone to collapse. If you attempt to drive through water, you may stall your engine. And this can cause irreparable damage to your car and you will not be able to restart the engine.

If you come upon a flooded street, take an alternate route.

Take extra precautions if you’re forced to drive through water.

Only take these steps if you have no other option.

  • Estimate the depth of the water in a flash flood.
  • Drive slowly and steadily through the water.
  • Avoid driving in water at all if you see downed electrical or power lines.
  • Watch for items traveling downstream — they can trap or crush you if you’re in their path.
  • Before entering the water, test your brakes to see if they are wet and slipping. Dry them first by pressing gently on the brake pedal with your left foot while maintaining speed with your right foot.
  • Stay alert. Stay off your cell phone unless you must report severe injuries.
  • If your vehicle stalls in the deep water, you may need to restart the engine to make it to safety. Keep in mind that restarting may cause irreparable damage to the engine.
  • If you can’t restart your vehicle and you become trapped in rising water, immediately abandon it for higher ground. Try to open the door or roll down the window to get out of the vehicle.
  • If you are unable to get out safely, call 911 or get the attention of a passerby or someone standing on higher ground so that they may call for help.

This spring, stay safe when strong rains come and bring potentially dangerous flash floods.

Denied Insurance Claim? Here’s What You Should Do

Denied Insurance Claim? Here’s What You Should DoSteps To Take After Your Denied Insurance Claim

 

Insurance companies charge you premiums to make a profit. Every time they pay a claim, that profit drops. Thus, insurance companies do everything in their power to delay or deny claims. If your denied insurance claim was valid, here’s what you need to do after receiving your denial letter.

 

Identify the Cause of the Denial

 

When an insurance company denies your claim, it must give reasoning. The reasoning is typically included in the denial letter. Finding out why your claim was denied is the first step to getting the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies deny claims for many reasons, but the most common reasons are:

 

Disputed Liability

 

Depending on the policy, the insurance company will deny a claim if the policyholder was not at fault.

It’s common for insurance companies to try to deny liability, so they don’t have to pay the claim. The good news is you will typically be given a chance to appeal the denied insurance claim.

 

If the insurance company is disputing liability, you need to consult with an attorney. Because this is a commonly used tactic to deny claims, you will need a seasoned personal injury claim attorney to prove liability so you can be compensated. To prove liability, you will need to gather evidence such as a crash or police reports and medical records.

 

Policy Exclusions

 

In some cases, insurance companies will deny claims because of policy exclusions. Insurance policies generally don’t cover intentional acts, acts of God, or some natural disasters. If any of these elements were involved in your accident, you might not be covered.

Lapse in Policy

 

The other most common reason for a claim denial is a lapse in the policy, which happens when the policyholder fails to pay the premium.

 

Facing a denied insurance claim can be frustrating and leave you feeling outnumbered. Insurance companies are motivated to deny your claim to save them money, which is why it’s so important to work with an experienced Arlington Heights car accident claim lawyer when filing a claim. A good attorney can help you appeal your denial and get your valid claim paid.

5 Defensive Driving Tips for Sharing the Road With Trucks

5 Defensive Driving Tips for Sharing the Road With TrucksDefensive Driving Tips for Cars Made Simple

 

Commercial trucks cause thousands of fatal crashes each year. Unfortunately, the much smaller and lighter passenger cars take the brunt of the impact. Defensive driving can reduce your chance of getting in a trucking accident while on the road. But most of us are only prepared to handle difficult situations involving other cars. These defensive driving tips can help you share the road safely with trucks, helping you avoid catastrophic accidents.

 

Be Aware

 

When sharing the road with trucks, you have to be aware of your surroundings and other drivers on the road. Trucks take up more road space. They also have slower breaking distances and more significant blind spots. As a result, accidents involving trucks tend to involve cars colliding at greater impacts. Always be aware when driving. Don’t try to multitask, and keep your eye on the horizon. If you’re driving behind trucks, give them enough distance so you can safely keep your eye on them and other drivers at the same time.

 

Travel at a Safe Speed

 

Trucks weigh much more than passenger cars and require greater distances to come to a stop. So it’s important to give trucks more than enough space. Driver fatigue is a leading cause of fatal accidents involving trucks. After being on the road for several hours, truck drivers can lose focus or even fall asleep at the wheel. No matter how safe you are, unless you have a sufficient distance between you and the truck, it will be very difficult to come to a stop or get out of the way of a truck that has lost control.

 

Stay Visible

 

Staying out of truck blind spots will significantly reduce your chance of getting in an accident. But truck blind spots are much larger than those of cars. Stay more than 30 feet ahead of or behind trucks at all times. Blind spots on trucks are typically two lanes to the side on the passenger side and one lane to the side on the driver side. So don’t travel in lanes immediately next to a truck or travel well ahead or behind.

 

Work with a seasoned Arlington Heights trucking accident attorney if you’ve been involved in an accident with a truck. These cases require a thorough knowledge of both state and federal transportation laws and experience filing claims against truckers and trucking companies. But involve an attorney as soon as you can, as there is a limited window of time in which to collect and preserve valuable evidence that could make or break your claim.

 

Filing a trucking accident claim can be overwhelming, and Arlington Heights personal injury attorney Ronald F. Wittmeyer understands how you feel. With more than 30 years experience practicing plaintiffs’ personal injury law, we can fight aggressively on your behalf. Serving the Northwest suburbs including Arlington Heights, Buffalo Grove, Palatine, and surrounding areas, the Law Offices of R.F.

13% of Illinois Drivers Are Uninsured: Here’s How to Protect Yourself

13% of Illinois Drivers Are Uninsured: Here’s How to Protect YourselfOver 13% of Illinois drivers are uninsured, according to a recent survey by the Insurance Research Council (IRC). So if you get in an accident in Illinois, it’s a real possibility the other driver could be uninsured. Protecting yourself from uninsured motorists is easy if you take preventative action and know what to do if you’re involved in an accident.

 

Purchase Good Insurance Coverage

 

The best way to protect yourself from uninsured drivers is to carry good uninsured motorist (UM) coverage. UM coverage is relatively inexpensive considering the benefits. And with 13% of Illinois drivers being uninsured, UM coverage is more important than ever.

 

Illinois requires drivers carry a minimum amount of UM coverage equal to the minimum amount of liability insurance. The minimum policy limits in Illinois are $20k for property damage, $25k bodily injury for one person per accident, and $50k for more than one person involved in an accident. In many cases, these policy limits are insufficient and quickly exhausted. We recommend bodily injury policy limits of $250k per person and $500k per accident for your protection.

 

Know How to File an Insurance Claim

 

You can file an uninsured motorist claim with your insurance company if the at-fault driver is uninsured or fled the scene (hit and run). UM claims are also common in accidents involving a car and a bicyclist or pedestrian. But it’s important to know that even if you are filing a claim with your insurance company, you need to be aware of your rights to make sure your insurer doesn’t violate them. A good first step is to read through your insurance policy to learn about the policy terms when filing a UM claim. Also, it’s a good idea to consult with an experienced Illinois auto accident attorney who can sort out the limits and terms of your policy so you can get maximum compensation.

 

Direct Claims

 

In very few instances, it’s worth it to file a personal injury claim directly against the at-fault driver. These claims can be very complex and are best handled by a seasoned personal injury attorney. Direct claims require more legwork and can be difficult to pursue in court. In certain cases, however, a direct claim is the only way to recover damages.

 

The State of Illinois is cracking down on uninsured drivers, enforcing fines and conducting random surveys requiring drivers submit proof of insurance. Nevertheless, it’s crucial to protect yourself adequately and know what steps to take after being involved in an accident with an uninsured driver. If you’ve been involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured Illinois driver, you should contact an Arlington Heights auto accident and attorney immediately. The sooner you involve an attorney in your claim, the better your chance of getting fair compensation.

 

If you’ve been involved in an accident with an uninsured driver, Arlington Heights personal injury attorney Ronald F. Wittmeyer can help. With more than 30 years experience practicing plaintiffs’ personal injury law, we can fight aggressively on your behalf.
