6  TYPES & CAUSES OF A  TRUCK, MOTORCYCLE CAR, OR AUTO ACCIDENT HAPPENS IN CHICAGO, AURORA, ROCKFORD, IL  INCLUDE: 

    1. Rear-end Accidents: 

      • Chicago rear-end crashes are the most common type of accident in the United States, accounting for about 30% of all accidents.*
    2. Wrong-Way / Head-on Collisions: 

      • While head-on collisions are not as frequent as rear-end accidents, the impact of a head-on collision can be devastating.  The head and back or disc injury sustained from such a crash can be catastrophic or fatal.
    3. T-Bone Auto Accident: 

      • A T-bone auto accident means when one vehicle hits the side of another vehicle. It often results in a direct impact and a head or spinal cord injury for the person in the vehicle that is hit.

    5. Distracted Driving Motor Vehicle Accident:

Be Aware of New Illinois Law To Help Reduce / End Distracted Driving Accidents  In Effect Since July 1, 2019.  Cell phone crashes and other types of distracted driving accidents are preventable.  Texting while driving is becoming one of the greatest dangers on our Illinois roadways.  Hopefully, Illinois’ new law can help drivers put their cell phones or other electronics away when in the driver’s seat. Under this new Illinois law, drivers using a cell phone without a hands-free device while behind the wheel are now issued a moving violation traffic ticket.  In IL, three moving violations within one year will result in the suspension of your driver’s license.
