Head-On Collisions in Illinois

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for pfmstock7-168.jpgFew accidents rival the severity of a head-on crash. These crashes involve two vehicles traveling directly toward another leading up to the impact. Even at low speeds, these crashes can result in severe injuries.

Head-on crashes are responsible for nearly 10 percent of all roadway fatalities each year. These crashes are often the cause of reckless or intoxicated drivers. Injured parties should contact a qualified Illinois auto accident lawyer immediately after a crash.
