Speeding-Related Cashes in Illinois
Speeding is a primary factor in many deadly crashes throughout Illinois. When a driver speeds, they are less able to control their vehicle, effectively increasing their chances of being involved in a serious accident. This can leave those on the road at risk of severe injuries.
Thousands are killed in high-speed crashes each year. More than a quarter of fatal collisions involve speeding drivers. Injured parties may be able to pursue lost compensation with the help of a qualified Illinois car crash attorney.
