Chicago, IL (May 16, 2023) – On Sunday morning, four people, including two children, were injured in a Washington Park-area collision on Chicago’s South Side.

The Chicago Fire Department reported that around 11:50 a.m., they were sent to the 5700 block of South State Street in response to a two-car collision.

Fire rescue team members said two toddlers were transferred to Comer Children’s Hospital and in serious condition.

Further reports also indicated that two other individuals were hurt and were transported in serious condition to the University of Chicago Medical Center.

Officers with the Chicago Police Department reported to the scene for their investigation, though they have not publicly provided further details about the incident.

Our thoughts go out to the injured victims and their loved ones at this time.

Injury-Causing Crashes in Chicago

Recent investigations and analysis from traffic experts indicate that there were about 97,000 incidents involving motor vehicles in Illinois in a single year. About 1,010 persons were seriously hurt or killed as a result of the more than 910 car accidents. The three leading causes of fatal car accidents are intoxicated driving, collisions with immobile objects, and high speeds.

In Cook County, most accidents that result in death or serious injury have occurred on or near major thoroughfares with many lanes. More than a quarter of all traffic accidents in the state of Illinois take place in the greater Chicago metropolitan area, according to recently published statistics from the state of Illinois.

People who are involved in car accidents often pay the price for the carelessness of others. Patients suffering from injuries sustained in accidents must also deal with the added burden of ever-increasing medical bills, among other financial difficulties.

You have the legal right to pursue financial compensation and justice if you were hurt in an automobile accident in Illinois that was the fault of another driver’s negligence or inattention. Obtaining legal advice as quickly as possible after a car accident in Illinois is highly recommended.

    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.
