Semi-Truck Accidents in Illinois
Around 500,000 trucking accidents occur across the United States each year. More than 5,000 people are killed in these accidents annually. In Illinois, 96 trucking accidents resulted in fatal injuries.
These large vehicles can cause devastating injuries in the event of a crash.
