According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an estimated 2.34 million people were injured in traffic accidents throughout the United States in a single year. Based on these staggering car accident statistics, it is important to realize that a collision and resulting injuries can happen to you anytime you are out on the roads.
Car accidents have the potential to completely change your life and even minor crashes can cause stress and can result in medical expenses and vehicle damage. However, the legal process regarding car accidents can be intimidating and complicated, so it is no surprise that many auto accidents do not know where to turn for help.

Not everyone has the right to recover after a car accident. For example, if you caused the accident through your own mistakes, you will likely not have many legal rights to recovery under Illinois law.
