Illinois Car Accidents
Handling the aftermath of a car crash is a long and frustrating process. The financial burden imposed by the cost of health care, repair bills, and lost income is often significant. Unfortunately, depending solely on the insurance company for compensation can leave you feeling even more confused.
There were 311,679 reported collisions in Illinois in just 2017. 21.5 percent of these crashes resulted in injuries. In some cases, injured parties can recover lost compensation with the help of a qualified Illinois car crash attorney.
