When it comes to exploring Illinois, cities like Chicago and Rockford seem to get all the attention. But Illinois is more than just Chicago.
Drive a few hours south and the landscape opens up to something equally as beautiful: the homey region of Southern Illinois. Southern Illinois, also known as “Little Egypt,” is a hub for education, nature, and business. In other words, it’s a great place for learning, living, and growing. Southern Illinois is a respected region in the Midwest, but they still struggle with the unavoidable issue of traffic accidents. Cars, trucks, buses, and other heavy machinery clog the roads on a daily basis. What regularly follows are accidents that range from fender benders to fatal collisions.
If you’ve been involved in a truck accident in the Illinois area, it’s probably a good idea for you to call a lawyer. They’ll help you figure out the best way to move forward, and only a Southern Illinois truck accident lawyer can work out a settlement to make up for your losses.
More than 4,000 people die from truck accidents each year in the United States. Illinois cities like Chicago and Peoria are especially dangerous for trucking.
It’s always wise to call an attorney after an accident (they have the best advice of any non-medical professional). THLaw will talk to you for free, so there’s no downside to stopping in for guidance.
Your insurance company can cover some of the physical damages of the accident, but that’s pretty much it. By calling a lawyer, a lawsuit from your team may follow. Successful suits will land money in your pocket.
Even in 2020, the issue of traffic accidents remains pervasive in every state. The right kind of automotive technology just isn't there yet. But just how big of a problem are truck accidents?
The numbers suggest that the frequency and intensity of truck accidents have been increasing over the last decade. Take a look at the facts (via the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety):
Being at the geographic center of the country, Illinois has highways running through it in every direction. In this region, you can find the following interstates: I-80, I-90, I-70, I-39, I-55, I-57, I-24, I-64, and I-74. In fact, there are more than 2,100 interstate miles and 16,000 highway miles in Illinois alone! New roads and road-related projects can be tracked on gettingaroundillinois.com.
In addition to highways, visitors can explore Illinois by train, plane, ferry, or transit. The IDOT website has plenty more information on travel methods, as well as information on how to reduce the risk of accidents in Illinois. Here is some helpful information they give:
You've probably heard of personal injury law, but what exactly is it? This type of law essentially deals with cases where someone has been physically or emotionally harmed when it wasn't (entirely) their own fault. The goal is to prove that this harm has been substantial, was carelessly inflicted upon you, and that you should receive money for it.
Personal injury spans all the way from slip and fall incidents to unwanted side effects of drugs to fatal car accidents. Here's an overview of what a Southern Illinois truck accident lawyer can do for its clients:
