Chicago Motor Vehicle Accident Attorney – The Horwitz Law Group
Head-on collisions make up 2 percent of all auto accidents but 20 percent of those accidents are fatal. Most accidents in Chicago occur when a driver runs a red light or fails to yield the right of way during a turn. About 86 percent of head-on collisions take place between intersections and make up about 7 percent of urban crashes.
There are ways to drive defensively to avoid collisions such as being prepared to go off the road, or reducing your speed. This is often not enough to prevent serious injury or death however, and it is important to consult an attorney to obtain maximum compensation after a Motor Vehicle Accident.
The High Impact caused by the two vehicles that crash make this type of auto accident especially dangerous. Our experience with these cases allows us to be much more proactive and effective in seeking the right compensation for your injuries.
Our Chicago motor vehicle attorneys will conduct a complete investigation of your case to determine how the accident occurred and if any other parties may share in the responsibility for your injuries. If a road hazard, another vehicle or some other issue caused the negligent driver to swerve and cross the center line, we will explore the viability of an additional claim on your behalf.
