Chicago, IL - Injuries Reported in I-80 Car Accident at Larkin Ave

Chicago, IL (June 29, 2022) – The Illinois State Police, in conjunction with the Chicago Police Department, stated that an accident on Interstate 80 on June 29, Wednesday afternoon, caused significant injuries.

The crash stalled eastbound I-80 traffic near Larkin Avenue, with backups stretching back to Houbolt Road. Additional information released by local authorities indicates that officers responded to the two-vehicle collision around 4:45 p.m.

According to preliminary reports, one person was sent to a nearby hospital with severe injuries. Due to the continuing investigation, both eastbound lanes of Interstate 80 were closed, however, the police did not release any other information about the crash.

The accident victims who were wounded are in our thoughts, and we wish them a speedy recovery.

Reports of Serious Injuries in Chicago Car Accidents

According to official figures, there were around 67,500 automobile accidents in Illinois that resulted in at least 94,500 injuries. In addition, more than 970 people died due to 950 unfortunate occurrences. According to authorities, the majority of fatal incidents were caused by automobiles colliding with immovable objects, intoxicated or drugged drivers, and excessive speed.

These and other traffic accidents are all too common in and around Cook County, with the majority happening at high-volume intersections and major thoroughfares or interstates. Nearly a quarter of all Illinois car accidents occur in the Chicago metropolitan region, according to the most recent state data.

As a consequence, those who are hurt in automobile accidents because someone else was reckless must foot the bill for their own treatment. Those who are afflicted must also deal with the emotional anguish that comes along with mounting medical bills, horrific physical injuries, and other forms of financial difficulty.

As a result of one or more of these conditions, you may be able to pursue legal action. If you’ve been injured or suffered other damages in a vehicle accident and you didn’t cause it, you should speak with a Chicago car accident lawyer right once.

You are also entitled to full and equitable compensation if you suffer injuries in one of these Illinois car accidents that might have been avoided, particularly if the accident was caused by the carelessness or indifference of another motorist. Accident victims in Illinois should get legal representation as soon as feasible after their incident occurs in order to maximize their chances of collecting substantial financial compensation from liable drivers or insurance companies.

    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.
