Drivers should adjust their own speed to prevent accidents during bad weather. However, negligence claims involving bad weather accidents can be difficult to navigate.

Across the country, inclement weather is the cause of nearly 1.3 million crashes each year. 480,000 people are injured annually in accidents caused by poor weather. In order to increase your chances of recovering compensation, you should contact a qualified Illinois auto accident lawyer.
