Illinois Car Accidents
Each year, five to six million car crashes are reported across the country. Despite these figures, most people take it for granted that they aren’t at risk of being involved in a crash. However, 3 million people are injured annually in car accidents, with 2 million suffering permanent injuries.
Crash victims often find themselves struggling to learn their rights in time to protect them after an accident. Generally, most people don’t have a complete understanding of state laws, insurance policies, or what procedures to follow after being injured in a crash.
