Head-On Collisions in Chicago
Being involved in a head-on crash is an extremely sudden and traumatic event. These accidents happen in a matter of seconds, leaving drivers unable to react in time to avoid a serious crash. Head-on collisions account for 10 percent of deadly crashes, despite only representing 2 percent of reported accidents.
Wrong-way crashes result in an estimated 355 deaths each year. These drivers can be potentially held responsible for any resulting injuries or other damages. A qualified Chicago car crash attorney can help injured parties pursue lost compensation for their losses.
