Intersection Accidents in Illinois
Crashes in Illinois often take place at intersections. Intersections are often busy and crowded, making collisions much more common. With many different vehicles going in varying directions at different speeds, it seems inevitable that a lapse in judgment can result in a serious crash.
Sometimes, intersections are caused by slight errors or gross negligence on part of another driver. Each year, 40 percent of all reported crashes happen within an intersection. Injured parties should consult with an Illinois car crash attorney to see if they have grounds for a personal injury claim.
