Illinois High-Speed Accidents
When a collision happens at a high rate of speed, those involved are likely to suffer from injuries that are much more severe as a consequence. Highways are a common site of high-speed crashes, due to the fact that highway speeds are much higher than typical roads. However, many drivers even exceed these speeds, increasing the potential of a serious accident.
The statistics surrounding high-speed crashes say it all. Each year, thousands of people lose their lives in crashes involving speeding motorists. Injured parties may be able to pursue lost compensation with the help of a qualified Illinois car crash attorney.
