Illinois Rollover Crashes
Nearly 35% of passenger-vehicle fatalities in 2010 involved rollover collisions. There were 7,600 reported deaths resulting from rollover collisions that year. The vast majority of those killed were unrestrained at the time of the crash.
What you do the moments after an accident is of critical importance. Many crash victims are unsure of how to get the compensation they need to recover after a serious accident. In some cases, injured parties can consult with a qualified Illinois car crash attorney to discuss their next steps to take.
