Chicago, IL – I-294 Site of Injury Auto Accident at Archer Ave

Chicago, IL - I-294 Site of Injury Auto Accident at Archer Ave

Chicago, IL (December 8, 2022) – Two to three victims were reportedly hurt in an automobile collision on the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) near Archer Avenue on the evening of Thursday, December 8.

At 6:50 p.m., all southbound traffic on I-294 at Archer was blocked as a result of the crash. Shortly thereafter, EMTs arrived and transferred a few of the victims, whose identities are unknown, to a Chicago-area hospital.

Because of the collision, the roadway was closed for almost two hours. During the on-scene portion of their investigation, officials in Bridgeview and Chicagoland were able to clean up the scene and remove the debris. However, the investigation is ongoing, and no further details have been provided.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families.

Car Accidents in Chicagoland

More than 95,000 incidents involving motor vehicles were reported in Illinois last year, according to data compiled by the state. Close to 980 people lost their lives as a direct consequence of more than 900 catastrophic events. Most fatal car crashes include one or more people being killed because of factors including drunk driving, hitting a stationary object, or traveling at an unsafely high speed.

When it comes to traffic-related deaths and injuries in Cook County, main thoroughfares are the most dangerous places to be. Illinois has revealed new numbers revealing that the greater Chicago metropolitan region is home to more than a quarter of all traffic accidents.

Those who are unfortunate enough to be involved in car accidents often bear the consequences of the carelessness of others. Patients with mental illness not only have to deal with the stress and grief of dealing with the aftermath of a car accident but also with the growing expenses of treatment.

Thankfully, these victims may be entitled to fair, full financial compensation. If you suffered injuries in an accident for which you were not at fault, you should get in touch with a Chicago car accident lawyer as soon as possible.

In the event that you were harmed in a vehicle accident in Illinois due to another driver’s negligence or inattention, you could be entitled to robust recompense.

  • "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.
