This is a common question and the thing that makes it interesting is that the answer can change. As we note elsewhere on our site, the act of driving a motor vehicle is risky business. In 2014 alone, Illinois officials recorded nearly 300,000 crashes. More than 61,000 people were injured in those vehicle accidents. Of those victims, 845 died.
The factors that contribute to a crash can vary widely. No two cases are ever alike. But one thing remains consistent, regardless of the factors involved, identifying options for victim compensation and holding responsible parties accountable often depends on working with a skilled attorney.
