Chicago Motor Vehicle Accidents
The Federal Highway Administration (FHA) receives about 2.5 million reports of incidents annually from the nation’s busiest intersections and major highways and interstates. Distracted drivers and those making left turns account for the vast majority of these crashes. More than 40% of all car accidents in the United States occur at these crossroads, according to government estimates.
There is a high rate of car accidents in Cook County, and many of them happen at the busiest intersections. Further, the Chicago metropolitan area accounts for a quarter of all vehicle accidents in Illinois, as reported by state officials.
Victims and their families will have to deal with the most fallout from an accident caused by someone else’s irresponsibility. This is true regardless of the causes of the crash. Victims must endure a harrowing ordeal that includes mental anguish, financial hardship, and a mountain of bills.
