DuPage County car accident attorney, DuPage County car accident, car accident case, car crash, driver negligenceThe weather in Lombard and throughout the Chicago area has been especially cold.

Each year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) releases a report concerning car accident statistics and fatalities on roads throughout the country. In 2016, fatal motor vehicle crashes rose again, just as they did between 2014 and 2015, according to the report.
