Chicago, IL – Injuries Occur in Two-Car Accident on I-90 at Barrington Rd

Chicago, IL - Injuries Occur in Two-Car Accident on I-90 at Barrington Rd

Chicago, IL (November 11, 2022) – Two vehicles collided on Friday, November 11, in South Barrington, according to police.

Chicago Police said that two sedans were involved in a rear-end accident on westbound I-90/Jane Addams Tollway near Barrington Road, close to about 6:50 p.m.

Two individuals were wounded, though the details about their identities and the specifics of their injuries were unclear. Their injuries ranged from from minor to moderate, but thankfully were not fatal.

Law enforcement reports that there are no open cases related to the incident. There has been no conclusion to the probe as of yet.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families.

Chicago Motor Vehicle Accidents

The Federal Highway Administration (FHA) receives about 2.5 million reports of incidents annually from the nation’s busiest intersections and major highways and interstates. Distracted drivers and those making left turns account for the vast majority of these crashes. More than 40% of all car accidents in the United States occur at these crossroads, according to government estimates.

There is a high rate of car accidents in Cook County, and many of them happen at the busiest intersections. Further, the Chicago metropolitan area accounts for a quarter of all vehicle accidents in Illinois, as reported by state officials.

Victims and their families will have to deal with the most fallout from an accident caused by someone else’s irresponsibility. This is true regardless of the causes of the crash. Victims must endure a harrowing ordeal that includes mental anguish, financial hardship, and a mountain of bills.

Legal recourse may be available to you if you or a loved one has been hurt in any of these ways, or if you have lost a loved one as a direct result of any of these things. If you were involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you should call a Chicago personal injury lawyer right once.

If you were hurt in an automobile accident that was the fault of another motorist in Illinois, you may take legal action to seek compensation from that driver. Since it may be difficult for accident victims to get full and fair financial compensation from drivers or their insurance companies, it is crucial that accident victims in Illinois employ the services of professional Illinois legal counsel.

  • "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.
