Chicago, IL – I-57 Site of Injury Auto Accident at Sauk Trl

Chicago, IL - I-57 Site of Injury Auto Accident at Sauk Trl

Chicago, IL (August 21, 2022) – Two automobiles were involved in a major collision on a major Chicago area roadway on Sunday afternoon, August 21.

As a result, many police cars and rescue workers were dispatched to the Chicago region. Around 4:00 p.m., officers from the Chicago Police Department were sent to the northbound side of Interstate 57. An accident involving two automobiles has closed the rightmost lanes near Sauk Trail. Supposedly one sufferer was taken by ambulance to a hospital in the Chicago area.

Despite this, detectives are still looking into the situation, but they haven’t uncovered anything new yet. However, the CPD has asked that anyone with relevant information get in touch.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the multiple-vehicle crash that occurred earlier today.

The Chicago Area’s Accident Rate and Injuries

Studies of traffic collisions indicate that there were close to 97,000 automobile accidents in the state of Illinois in 2013. From these over 910 events, over 1,025 people have lost their lives. Drunk driving, colliding with a stationary object, and driving too fast are the three most common causes of fatal car accidents.

Most of the county’s fatalities and catastrophic injuries occur at high-volume crossings and four- and six-lane highways in Cook County. More than a quarter of all traffic accidents in the state of Illinois take place in and around the greater Chicago metropolitan area, according to recently released data.

Most of the time, the victims of vehicle accidents have to foot the bill for another driver’s carelessness. Many people only think about the immediate physical consequences of an accident rather than the long-term psychological and financial effects. After a disaster, victims may also seek compensation for the emotional distress they experienced. Contact a Chicago attorney without delay if you were not at fault in the auto accident.

In Illinois, you have the legal right to seek redress and monetary compensation if you were wounded in an auto accident that was the fault of another motorist. In the event of an automobile accident in Illinois, it is highly recommended that you contact a local attorney without delay. It’s possible that you’ll have a hard time reaching a fair settlement with the negligent driver’s insurance company without a lawyer’s help.

  • "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.
