Semi-Truck Collisions in Illinois
When we pass semi-trucks on the highway, we’re often taken over with anxiety. That’s because these large vehicles can be particularly destructive in the event of a collision. The size and speed of these vehicles alone can make a crash catastrophic for those traveling in smaller passenger vehicles.
Each year, an estimated 700 people are killed in semi-truck collisions across the United States. 5,000 more are seriously injured after being involved in a commercial vehicle accident. Injured parties should consult with an Illinois trucking injury to discuss their case.
