Fatal Vehicle Wrecks in Chicago

In Illinois, serious car crashes with several drivers involved, major injuries, and even deaths are among the most frequent collision scenarios. In our state, there were over 300,000 accidents involving one or more automobiles in the previous year alone.

The number of accidents is too frequent to be overstated. It’s likely that a friend, neighbor, family member, or coworker has dealt with the aftermath of a collision at some point in their life, even if you have never been in one yourself.

Thankfully, some events are minor and just result in property damage. However, a significant percentage of these crashes cause injuries or even deaths every year. In addition, the victims of these collisions could suffer from financial losses in addition to excruciating injuries or be bereaved of loved ones, compounding the suffering.
