Losing a loved one due to a fatal car crash can have an overwhelming impact on your family. Regrettably, countless people end up dying as a result of car crashes in our state that are caused by negligent motorists.

Some of the leading factors that we see in fatal motor vehicle collisions here in Illinois include:

Speeding drivers: Drivers who exceed the speed limit are more likely to get into an accident. Not only does speeding increase the risk of a person losing control of their vehicle and striking another, but it also increases the severity of injuries that victims involved in these crashes suffer.

Drivers who fail to yield: When approaching a stop sign or stop light, it is important that drivers stop and allow other people to travel through the area when they have the right of way. Regrettably, countless people lose their lives as a result of drivers who fail to yield to others.

Switching lanes recklessly: We see countless people lose their lives as a result of drivers who switch lanes in a reckless manner. Regrettably, this can result in vehicles striking others and causing them to spin out and lose control.

Running red lights: Running red lights can have severe consequences for others sharing the road. We see many people lose their lives as a result of fatal crashes caused by drivers who engage in this type of negligence.

  • "Excellent Law Firm!"

    I cannot recommend D&W Law Group enough. From the moment I met the team, I felt confident that I was in good hands. They kept in touch with me every step of the way. My attorneys fought the insurance company, and we settled my case without having to go to court. Excellent law firm!

  • "Great Settlement"

    When I had my accident, the insurance company dragged its feet. I tried to handle the case on my own. I am so glad I decided to hire D&W Law Group. They kept my case moving, and I was awarded a great settlement. I hope I never need an attorney again, but if I do I will call them.
