Chicago, IL – I-94 Site of Injury Auto Accident at Peterson Ave Near Eden

Chicago, IL - I-94 Site of Injury Auto Accident at Peterson Ave Near Eden

Chicago, IL (September 21, 2022) – On Wednesday afternoon, September 21, two vehicles collided on the outbound I-94 in Eden, necessitating the response of the police.

A collision involving two or three automobiles happened at 2:35 p.m. near Peterson Avenue, according to the police. Due to the miles-long traffic gridlock, law enforcement and medical officials were sent to the scene to investigate and treat any injured victims. After the collision, Chicago Fire Rescue was able to extinguish the fire in one of the vehicles.

There is no official number of injuries; however, footage from the scene shows two individuals being rushed to a hospital in an ambulance.

The police have not made any more statements and are currently investigating.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims, and we hope for their complete recovery.

Traffic Accidents and Injuries in Chicago

In 2013, over 1,025 people perished in accidents in the state of Illinois. Excessive speed, collisions with immovable objects, and driver attention account for the majority of fatal automotive accidents in the state.

A disproportionately high frequency of catastrophic accidents and fatalities occur on Cook County’s four- and six-lane roads. In addition, 26 percent of accident cases in the state of Illinois occur in the Chicago metropolitan region.

Vehicle accident victims often pay the price for the irresponsibility of others. In addition, seeing such acts may be painful on several levels. If you were injured in a car accident in Chicago and believe it was someone else’s responsibility, you should see an attorney immediately.

A citizen of Illinois who has been injured in an accident that was not their fault may sue the at-fault person in civil court for monetary compensation. If you were recently engaged in one in Illinois, you should consult with an automobile accident attorney. It may be difficult to negotiate a settlement with the irresponsible driver’s insurance carrier on your own.

  • "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.
