Suffering from an accident brought on by a negligent driver may entitle you or a loved one to compensation. At The Gori Law Firm, we have a track record of success in personal injury cases. Our experienced attorneys will fight relentlessly for your right to seek compensation.
Scott’s Law – Made For Your Safety
In December 2000, an intoxicated driver struck and killed Lieutenant Scott Gillen as the Chicago firefighter performed his emergency duties on the side of the road. The state of Illinois passed “Scott’s Law” or the Move Over Law. This law originally stated that drivers must reduce speed, change lanes if possible and proceed with caution when approaching an emergency vehicle such as an ambulance or police car.
In 2017, the law was adjusted to include any vehicle pulled over with emergency lights flashing. Drivers in Illinois hit 15 State Police troopers or other vehicles after the officers parked along the road. That happened in just the first three months of 2019, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
