According to a study done by the Harvard Health Watch, an average American spends 101 minutes per day driving. That means that in a lifetime, an average person spends a whopping 37,935 hours driving a car (assuming that s/he starts driving at 17 and drives until 78.7 years old).  The fact that we spend so much time in our cars and trucks, increases our risk of being involved in an auto accident or car wreck.  Illinois law requires negligent or careless drivers to carry liability insurance coverage that will provide compensation to people injured in auto accidents or car wrecks.  Those insurance companies, however, rarely voluntarily agree to fully compensate injured people.  A person injured in an auto accident or car wreck should hire an experienced auto accident lawyer as soon as possible so as to ensure that they received all the compensation to which they are legally entitled.  The attorneys at Jelliffe, Doerge & Phelps have years of experience handling auto accident and car wreck cases throughout the State of Illinois.
