Chicago, IL – 71st St Site of Multi-Vehicle Accident, Injuries at Constance & Clyde Aves

Chicago, IL - 71st St Site of Multi-Vehicle Accident, Injuries at Constance & Clyde Aves

Chicago, IL (August 14, 2022) – On Sunday morning, August 14, two cars crashed on a major multi-lane roadway in the Chicago area, prompting the dispatch of many police enforcement units.

At approximately around 9:25 a.m., the Chicago Police Department was sent to 71st Street, which runs east to west. The left three lanes of the road between Constance Avenue and Clyde Avenue were blocked down after a collision involving two vehicles. One patient was allegedly transported by emergency services to a hospital in the greater Chicago metropolitan region.

Officials continue their investigation despite this but have turned up no fresh information. However, the CPD requested that anybody with potentially helpful information get in contact with them.

The victims of today’s multi-car accident have our deepest sympathies.

Reports of Injuries and Accidents in the Greater Chicago Area

According to studies on traffic accidents, there were close to 97,000 incidents involving vehicles in Illinois in 2013. More than 1,025 persons lost their lives as a consequence of the more than 910 incidents that took place. Driving under the influence of alcohol, colliding with stationary objects, and going too fast are the three leading causes of fatal automobile accidents.

It’s been shown that Cook County’s most dangerous intersections are also the ones where the most fatalities and severe injuries occur. The greater Chicago metropolitan area is responsible for more than a quarter of all traffic accidents in the state of Illinois, according to newly published statistics.

Unfortunately, those who are injured in vehicle accidents often have to shoulder the burden of another person’s negligence. The emotional and financial costs that accompany physical injuries are often overlooked.

In addition, victims may be reimbursed for the mental pain they went through as a consequence of the disaster or the death of a loved one. If you were not at fault for the collision, you should contact a Chicago car accident lawyer as soon as you possibly can.

If another driver’s negligence or recklessness caused your automobile accident injuries, you have the right to pursue justice and financial recompense in Illinois. Seeking legal counsel after a car accident is a must for anybody in Illinois. Recovering full and adequate compensation from the at-fault driver or their insurance company may be challenging without legal representation.

  • "Excellent Law Firm!"

    I cannot recommend D&W Law Group enough. From the moment I met the team, I felt confident that I was in good hands. They kept in touch with me every step of the way. My attorneys fought the insurance company, and we settled my case without having to go to court. Excellent law firm!

  • "Great Settlement"

    When I had my accident, the insurance company dragged its feet. I tried to handle the case on my own. I am so glad I decided to hire D&W Law Group. They kept my case moving, and I was awarded a great settlement. I hope I never need an attorney again, but if I do I will call them.
