Deadly Semi-Truck Accidents in Illinois
Around 4,735 pedestrians were killed in car crashes nationwide in 2013. Around 71% of pedestrian fatalities involved large trucks. Pedestrians are much more vulnerable to suffering from life-threatening injuries in the event of a crash.
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.
