High-Speed Accidents in Illinois
Speeding can greatly increase your chances of being involved in a serious car accident. The force of a high-speed crash can also cause more severe injuries. Speeding drivers are responsible for a significant percentage of deadly crashes each year.
Annually, thousands are killed in high-speed crashes. The damages associated with a high-speed collision are often much more costly than low-speed crashes. Injured parties should consult with an Illinois auto accident lawyer to discuss their options for compensation.
