Chicago, IL - Injuries Reported in Car Crash on I-294 at 95th St Near Bridgeview

Chicago, IL (July 27, 2022) – A car accident on the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) near Bridgeview occurred on the evening of July 27, Wednesday, and left a handful of people with injuries.

The southbound side of Interstate 294 was completely stopped around 95th Street at 9:40 p.m. due to an accident. An unknown patient has been sent to a Chicago hospital at this time, but their present condition was not made available.

Traffic was halted for about two hours as a result of the accident. During the investigation, authorities in Bridgeview and Chicagoland were able to clean up the site and remove the debris.

We offer our condolences to the victims and their families and wish for a speedy recovery.

Greater Chicago-area Auto Accidents

Figures provided by the state show that there were more than 95,000 car accidents in Illinois last year. Nearly 980 individuals died as a direct result of over 900 disastrous disasters. Auto accidents that result in at least one fatality are most often caused by drivers engaging in head-on collisions with stationary objects, drinking and driving, or driving at an unsafely high speed.

In Cook County, the majority of traffic-related fatalities and injuries occur at or near busy intersections. Illinois has published new figures showing that the greater Chicago metropolitan area is home to more than a quarter of all traffic incidents.

Motor vehicle accident victims often endure the brunt of other people’s recklessness. It’s not enough for patients to cope with mounting medical costs and other financial burdens; they also have to deal with the stress and sorrow that comes with suffering from mental illness.

The victims of these injuries may also be entitled to compensation for their suffering or perhaps death as a direct result of the damage they sustained. If you were not the one who caused the accident, you should get in contact with a Chicago auto accident lawyer as soon as possible.

If you were injured in an automobile accident in Illinois because of another driver’s negligence or inattention, you are entitled to compensation and justice. As soon as possible following a car accident in Illinois, plaintiffs should seek legal assistance, as it may be difficult to get a large settlement from the other driver or their insurance company without it.

  • "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.
