Injury Car Accidents in Chicago

Annually, there are around 2.5 million accidents at high-traffic intersections, major highways, and interstates, according to data from the Federal Highway Administration (FHA). Usually, drivers who aren’t paying attention or who are turning left are to blame for these kinds of accidents. Over 46% of all traffic accidents in the US happen at these intersections, according to data.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of traffic accidents in Cook County, and many of them occur near highly used crossroads. Officials from the state of Illinois report that one in four auto accidents takes place in or around the greater Chicago region.

Victims and their loved ones bear the brunt of the consequences when someone else’s carelessness causes someone else harm. This holds true whatever the specifics of the situation. The emotional pain, physical costs, and monetary strains suffered by victims are enormous.

If you or a loved one were injured or killed as a consequence of any of these incidents, you might be eligible for compensation via various legal channels. If you were recently engaged in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, you should get in touch with a lawyer practicing in Chicago’s civil court system right away.

You have the right to seek justice and fair and comprehensive compensation if you were harmed in a vehicle accident in Illinois that was the fault of another driver’s negligence or recklessness.

  • "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.
