Deadly Vehicle Wrecks in Chicago

Serious vehicle accidents are among the most common crash types in Illinois. In the last year alone, there were more than 300,000 accidents involving at least one to two vehicles in our state.

It is impossible to overstate the frequency of crashes. Even if you have never been in an accident, there’s a good probability that a friend, neighbor, family member, or colleague has at some time in their lives experienced the effects of a collision.

Fortunately, some incidents are small-scale and simply cause property damage. Nevertheless, a significant portion of these collisions result in injuries and even fatalities each year.
