Head-On Crashes in Illinois
Head-on crashes are some of the most lethal kinds of accidents, accounting for nearly 10% of deadly accidents annually. The Federal Highway Administration claims that head-on accidents have a 58% fatality rate. Even at low speeds, victims of head-on crashes risk suffering life-threatening injuries.
Dealing with the aftermath of a serious crash is a long and frustrating process. The financial impact of medical care, repair bills, and lost wages can be extremely disruptive to our lives. Sadly, when victims depend solely on insurance companies, they often feel even more alone and confused.
