Truck Accident Attorneys For I-55 Accidents

Stretching 290-plus miles though Illinois, Interstate 55 connects the major cities of Chicago and St. Louis. According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, it carries more than 20,000 vehicles every day. Semi-trucks, delivery trucks and other large commercial carriers make up a sizeable portion of this traffic. Sadly, some of these trucks crash, resulting in fatalities and serious injuries to other drivers.
