Chicago, IL – Injuries Recorded in Car Crash on I-90 at Lawrence Ave

Chicago, IL - Injuries Recorded in Car Crash on I-90 at Lawrence Ave

Chicago, IL (January 4, 2023) – As of Wednesday evening, January 4, it was reported that one person was hurt in a vehicle collision on Interstate 90 in the Chicago metropolitan region.

At around 3:25 p.m., a significant collision occurred on Kennedy Inbound near Lawrence Avenue. An EMS team from Chicago transported a patient to the hospital, but the patient’s status remains unknown.

The crash caused a two-hour delay, per authorities who responded to the scene. The Chicago Police Department finished its first check of the accident scene at around 5:00 p.m.

Although an inquiry has been initiated, no more information is currently available. Witnesses were asked to come forward if they had additional details to aid the investigation.

Our thoughts are extended to the injured victims and their loved ones.

Rate of Car Crashes in Chicagoland

In Illinois, at least 95,000 people were wounded, and 400 other victims died in vehicle-related accidents in 2017. There were around one thousand catastrophic events, and approximately 970 people perished as a result. Most fatal automotive accidents include excessive speeding, driving under the influence, or collisions with stationary objects.

Cook County motorists are involved in most accidents at or at major junctions. In addition, the greater Chicago area has been responsible for nearly 26% of all car accidents in Illinois during the last few years.

Everyone who receives injuries in a car collision that may have been prevented should investigate their legal possibilities thereafter. This is especially pertinent given that the patient’s growing medical expenditures, serious injuries, and other financial concerns compound his or her continued emotional pain and stress following a vehicle accident.

Thankfully, legal redress may be available if any of these issues has damaged you or a loved one. If you were injured in a collision that was not your fault, you should immediately contact an auto accident attorney in Chicago.

In Illinois, the injured individual has the legal right to seek compensation when the accident was not their fault. In addition, delaying conversations with the at-fault drivers and their insurance may complicate the reimbursement procedure.

  • "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.
