Chicago, IL – Injuries Occur in I-57 Multi-Vehicle Crash at Halsted St

Chicago, IL - Injuries Occur in I-57 Multi-Vehicle Crash at Halsted St

Chicago, IL (July 30, 2022) – On Saturday evening, July 30, a collision between two autos on a local road resulted in a serious accident in the Chicago metropolitan region.

The Chicago Police Department was sent to the location of the accident at 7:15 p.m. and arrived soon afterward. Supposedly, the collision occurred on the left shoulder of the incoming I-57, near the Halsted Street exit, when two vehicles moving in the left three lanes collided. It looks that Chicagoland emergency medical personnel transported one individual to the hospital. Despite this, the investigation is still ongoing, and no other information has been provided.

We wish for the victims’ speedy recovery and send our condolences to their families.

Automobile-Related Accidents in the Greater Chicago Area

According to data gathered by the state, there were more than 95,000 automobile accidents in Illinois in 2013. More than 900 distinct natural catastrophes directly caused the lives of around 980 persons. Driving under the influence of alcohol, hitting an immovable object head-on, and driving at an unsafely high rate of speed are the three primary causes of fatal motor vehicle accidents.

The great majority of fatal and injury-causing auto accidents in Cook County occur at or near heavily frequented intersections. The greater Chicago metropolitan area is responsible for more than a quarter of all traffic accidents, according to newly disclosed data from the state of Illinois.

The victims of motor vehicle accidents are often forced to endure the repercussions of the negligence of others. In addition to the stress and misery associated with having a mental illness, patients must also contend with the growing costs of medical care and other financial difficulties.

Moreover, the victims may be entitled to compensation for the pain and suffering they underwent or for the death of a loved one as a direct result of these injuries. If the crash was not your fault, it is vital that you contact a Chicago automobile accident attorney immediately.

In Illinois, if you were harmed in an automobile accident caused by another driver’s negligence or inattention, you have the right to seek compensation and justice for your injuries. Plaintiffs involved in an automobile accident in Illinois are highly advised to engage in legal representation as soon as possible after the occurrence, since it may be difficult to secure fair and comprehensive compensation from the other motorist or their insurance company in the absence of such assistance.

  • "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.
