Chicago, IL – I-80/94 Site of Injury Car Accident at Kennedy Ave

Chicago, IL - I-80/94 Site of Injury Car Accident at Kennedy Ave

Chicago, IL (October 1, 2022) – On Saturday, October 1st, two vehicles collided on a local roadway in the Chicago region, prompting the deployment of multiple law enforcement agencies.

The Chicago Police Department was sent at 3:55 p.m., and officers quickly arrived on westbound I-80/94 after receiving word of the incident from dispatch. Just before the exit for Kennedy Avenue, a collision involving two automobiles caused traffic to back up to Burr Street. Additionally, it appears that emergency medical services in the Chicago region took one patient to the hospital.

Despite this, detectives are still looking into the matter; they haven’t learned anything new thus yet. In the meantime, the CPD has issued a call for any potential witnesses to come forward.

The injured victims are in our thoughts at this time, and we hope for their complete recovery.

Car Accidents in the Greater Chicago Area

According to statistics, there were roughly 95,000 car accidents in Illinois in only one recent year. About 1,010 people lost their lives in over 920 separate incidents. Drunk driving, head-on collisions with fixed objects, and excessive speeding are the three leading causes of fatal automobile accidents.

A large number of fatal and injury-causing accidents in Cook County take place at or near high-traffic intersections. According to recently released figures, more than a quarter of all traffic accidents in the state of Illinois occur in the greater Chicago metropolitan area.

As a result of someone else’s negligence, car accident victims frequently bear the consequences. As if dealing with physical pain and emotional trauma from an accident wasn’t enough, patients also face substantial financial challenges due to their treatment.

Victims may also be compensated for the wrongful death of a family member or the mental anguish they endured as a result of the tragedy. Do not hesitate to get in touch with a Chicago car accident attorney if you are not to blame for the incident that has left you with myriad damages.

You have the legal right to pursue financial compensation and justice if you were injured in a car accident in Illinois that was caused by another driver’s carelessness or disregard for the law. Seeking legal counsel as soon as possible after an automobile accident in Illinois is strongly recommended. Without legal representation, collecting full and fair compensation from the at-fault motorist or their insurance company may be challenging.

  • "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.
