Chicago, IL – Car Accident on I-294 Tri-State at 31st St Injures Victims

Chicago, IL - Car Accident on I-294 Tri-State at 31st St Injures Victims

Chicago, IL (November 22, 2022) – On the evening of November 22nd, a car accident occurred on the Tri-State Tollway (I-294), near 31st Street, injuring at least one person.

A collision on southbound Interstate 294 near 31st Street in the Oak Brook region caused the highway to be closed at about 8:20 p.m. A patient whose name has not been disclosed is now being treated at a hospital in Chicago.

The accident caused the route to be blocked for close to two hours. During the preliminary on-site investigation, authorities in Bridgeview and the neighboring areas of Chicago were able to clean the scene and remove debris.

We are thinking of the wounded victims and their loved ones at this time.

Motor Vehicle Crashes in Chicago

According to official statistics, there were over 95,000 car accidents in Illinois in 2016. Almost 980 individuals perished as a direct result of over 900 disasters. Drunk driving, colliding with a stationary object, and excessive speeding are the most common causes of death for those involved in automobile accidents.

The majority of traffic-related fatalities and injuries in Cook County have occurred on or near major roads. According to newly disclosed statistics from the state of Illinois, about a quarter of all traffic accidents in the state occur in the greater Chicago metropolitan area.

Victims of vehicle accidents often end up paying the price for the reckless actions of others. Patients with mental illness not only have to cope with the emotional toll of their wounds, but also the mounting costs associated with caring for themselves.

Those who have experienced harm or lost a loved one as a direct result of these incidents may be entitled to monetary compensation. If you were not at fault in an automobile accident in Chicago, you should speak with an attorney right once.

If another driver’s negligence or recklessness caused an accident that injured you in Illinois, that driver must compensate you for your losses and face legal consequences. Legal representation should be sought out as quickly as possible after a car accident in Illinois; doing so on one’s own may make it more difficult to get a fair settlement from the other driver’s insurance company.

  • "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.
