Speeding-Related Crashes in Chicago
Speeding is extremely dangerous and reckless behavior. Speeding can increase your likelihood of a crash while also magnifying the severity of resulting injuries. Despite these risks, many people make speeding a habit.
There are thousands of deaths attributed to high-speed crashes each year. On average, more than a quarter of fatal accidents are caused by speeding drivers. In some cases, injured parties may be able to recover lost compensation with the help of a qualified Chicago car crash attorney.
