Chicago, IL – Injuries Reported in Multi-Car Accident on I-55 at I-80

Chicago, IL - Injuries Reported in Multi-Car Accident on I-55 at I-80

Chicago, IL (May 30, 2022) – According to local officials, a multi-vehicle collision occurred in the Chicagoland region on Monday afternoon, May 30.

The driver of a passenger vehicle was going northbound on Interstate 55 after exiting the I-80 ramp when they collided with another automobile, causing a rollover collision, according to Chicago Police. When the accident happened at 12:30 p.m., both automobiles were in the right lanes.

Two persons were injured, but their present statuses were not disclosed. They received mild to moderate but non-life-threatening injuries. While the CPD worked the area, traffic was backed up to U.S. Highway 6.

Charges in connection with the incident are not presently pending, according to police. The inquiry is still ongoing, however.

We’re thinking about the accident’s wounded victims and hoping for a full recovery for everyone involved.

Motor Vehicle Accidents Causing Injury in Chicago

Each year, the Federal Highway Administration (FHA) records more than 2.5 million incidents at both busy intersections and major highways and interstates. Inattentive or left-turning drivers cause the majority of these incidents. According to officials, these crossings are responsible for more than 43% of all car accidents in the US.

Unfortunately, Cook County has a high prevalence of traffic accidents, with many of them happening at busier intersections. Furthermore, one-quarter of all car accidents in Illinois occur in and around the Chicago metropolitan area, according to state authorities.

When people are injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, it is they and their families that face the brunt of the repercussions. This is true regardless of what caused the accident. Victims must travel a difficult and painful path that involves agonizing psychological pain, high medical costs, and financial hardship.

You may be able to pursue a variety of legal alternatives if you’ve been hurt in one of these incidents or if you’ve lost a loved one as a result of one of these events. You should call a car accident attorney in Chicago as soon as possible after being involved in an event that was not your fault.

  • "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.
