Chicago, IL – I-94 Site of Injury Vehicle Accident at 75th St

Chicago, IL - I-94 Site of Injury Vehicle Accident at 75th St

Chicago, IL (September 23, 2022) – An accident on Friday evening on Interstate 94 in the Chicago metropolitan area injured at least one person critically.

At around 7:30 p.m., an accident completely blocked the 75th Street exit on I-94 Dan Ryan Outbound. EMTs in Chicago rushed at least one patient to the hospital, but information on that patient’s current condition is not yet available.

The accident caused hours of delays in traffic. As of late that night, the scene had been cleaned up and debris removed by officials from the Chicago Police Department, who are currently conducting their investigation.

We hope that the injured people involved in the crash will recover quickly.

Major Injuries Caused by Chicago-area Accidents

According to official figures, more than 96,000 people were injured or killed in vehicle accidents in Illinois last year. More than a thousand terrible events resulted in the deaths of around 970 people. Authorities report that speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and collisions with stationary objects are the major causes of fatal car accidents.

Most traffic collisions in and around Cook County occur at high-volume junctions. According to the most up-to-date data from the state, more than a quarter of all vehicle accidents in Illinois take place in the greater Chicago region.

A person hurt in a traffic accident that might have been avoided must bear the costs of that carelessness. This is true no matter the conclusion of the conversation. Patients have to deal with the stress and suffering of mental anguish in addition to rising medical costs, horrible physical injuries, and other financial concerns.

You or a loved one may have legal options if one of these illnesses has caused you harm. Do not delay in seeing a Chicago car accident lawyer if you were not at fault for an accident.

You have the legal right to seek justice and full and fair compensation if you were injured in an automobile accident in Illinois that was caused by another driver’s negligence or inattention.

  • "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.
