I spend much of my practice helping people who have been victimized in an Illinois auto accident. But perhaps the best way to avoid being hurt or killed in a crash is to be a responsible and well-informed driver. Much of that knowledge can be acquired before you ever get into your vehicle.
To that end, I am providing several different resources which may benefit Illinois drivers. Feel free to bookmark this page for your records.
