Illinois Head-On Collisions
Few types of collisions cause injuries as severe as a head-on crash. These take place when two vehicles are traveling directly toward another leading up to a collision. The force involved in these crashes can cause serious damages.
10 percent of all fatal car accidents involve head-on crashes. Considering these accidents only make up 2 percent of all reported collisions, this shows how dangerous they can be. Families who have lost a loved one in a crash may be able to recover deserved compensation.
