Illinois Head-On Collisions
Each year, head-on crashes are responsible for 10 percent of all fatal accidents in the United States. These collisions are known to cause injuries and property damage much more severe than typical crashes. These increased damages are directly caused by the force of impact.
Sometimes, these crashes are just accidents. However, in other cases, these accidents are the result of negligence on part of another driver. If a negligent driver caused the crash, injured parties or surviving family members may be able to seek compensation for their injuries.
