High-Speed Accidents in Illinois
Speeding greatly increases your chances of being involved in a serious car accident. When drivers speed, they are putting themselves and others on the road in danger. These accidents can result in severe and life-changing injuries.
In 2017, more than 26 percent of all roadway fatalities involved high-speed crashes. The injuries resulting from a high-speed crash are much more severe than low-speed collisions. Surviving family members may feel they lack legal recourse after the loss of a loved one.
