Chicago Rollover Crashes
Rollover collisions were involved in nearly 35% of passenger-vehicle accidents in 2010. That year, nearly 7,600 people were killed in rollover crashes. Around 69% of those killed were unrestrained at the time of the crash.
Dealing with the aftermath of a serious car 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 car crash victims depend solely on insurance companies, they often feel even more alone and confused.
