Dangerous Highways in Illinois

Lake County Highway Accident Attorneys

Lake County High-Speed Accident Attorneys

Heavy traffic traveling at high speeds can create some of the most dangerous conditions on the road. Coupled with severe weather that is common in Northern Illinois, drivers are at a high risk, especially during the winter months when visibility is low and ice or snow accumulates on the roads. Highway accidents are common throughout the area and can result in very serious, even deadly injuries. At Salvi & Maher, L.L.C., we represent clients who have been involved in accidents and suffered an injury or lost a loved one.

You need immediate advocacy after a highway accident. Before you sign any paperwork or agree to a settlement, contact us to ensure that your rights are fully protected.

Rear-End Collisions and Highway Blind Spots

Many of the accidents caused on highways involve rear-end collisions, because drivers may be using a cell phone, texting while driving, or otherwise not paying attention to their surroundings. Others can involve merging or cars changing lanes without checking their blind spots. After a highway accident, it is important to consult with an experienced attorney who can determine the cause of your accident and identify all responsible parties.

Highway Trucking Accidents in Illinois

As a midwestern region linking Wisconsin, Indiana, Iowa, and even the coasts, Northern Illinois is a national hub of some of the worst traffic in the country. In addition to commuter traffic, the region is known for the heavy trucking loads that traverse its roadways every day. Even though Illinois does not allow trucks in the far left lane, the danger to other drivers continues to be significant. We represent clients in truck accident cases involving improper loads, fatigued drivers, cell phone use, and recklessness or general negligence on the road.
