Illinois Freeway Collision Accident Lawyers
Highway Car Accident Attorneys Serving Aurora, Champaign, Chicago and all of Illinois
Given the high speeds at which vehicles travel on freeways in Illinois, and the large volumes of commercial trucks and other traffic on those roads, freeways are some of the most dangerous places to drive in the state. Accidents that happen on freeways are often more severe than those on surface streets for those same reasons and can result in injuries that are catastrophic or even fatal.

It is important to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible following an accident as the success of your legal actions may depend on the steps you take early on.

Common causes of accident on Illinois freeways include:
- Unsafe lane changes
- Improperly marked construction zones
- Driving in the area between solid white lines at entrance and exit ramps
- Vehicles on the side of the road
- Debris in the roadway
These dangers can lead to head-on, sideswipe, rear-end and rollover accidents and can easily cause major injuries such as broken bones, whiplash, spinal cord injuries, paralysis and death.
