Chicago, IL – Auto Accident on I-80/94 at Kennedy Ave Injures Victims

Chicago, IL - Auto Accident on I-80/94 at Kennedy Ave Injures Victims

Chicago, IL (November 15, 2022) – On Tuesday, November 15, two automobiles crashed on a local highway in the Chicago metropolitan area, necessitating the dispatch of numerous first responders.

The Chicago Police Department was sent at 7:00 p.m., and officers responded promptly on eastbound I-80/94 after fielding calls about the incident. Initial reports seem to suggest that two drivers collided just before the Kennedy Avenue exit, causing traffic to back up to Burr Street. Additionally, it seems that Chicago-area emergency medical personnel transported one patient to the hospital.

Despite this, investigators continue to investigate; they have not uncovered any new information so far. The CPD has issued a request for possible witnesses in the interim.

Our thoughts and hopes for a full recovery go out to the injured victims at this time.

Causes of Car Crashes in Chicagoland

In a single year, there were around 90,000 vehicle accidents in Illinois, according to data. Approximately 1,000 individuals perished, adding insult to injury. Drunk driving, head-on collisions with stationary or fixed objects, and excessive speeding are the three major causes of automotive accidents resulting in fatalities.

A significant proportion of fatal and injury-causing incidents in Cook County occur at or near junctions with heavy traffic. More than a quarter of all traffic incidents in the state of Illinois occur in the greater Chicago metropolitan region, according to newly published data.

Victims of automobile accidents usually endure the repercussions of someone else’s irresponsibility. As if coping with physical pain and mental stress caused by an accident weren’t enough, patients frequently confront significant financial issues as a result of their treatment.

Additionally, victims may be paid for the wrongful loss of a family member or the mental suffering they had as a consequence of the catastrophe. Do not delay in contacting a Chicago automobile accident attorney if you are not responsible for the occurrence that resulted in your extensive injuries.

If you were harmed in an auto accident in Illinois that was caused by another driver’s negligence or contempt for the law, you have the legal right to demand financial compensation and justice. After a car accident in Illinois, it is advised that you get legal representation immediately.

  • "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.
