Chicago, IL - Injuries Reported in Multi-Car Wreck on I-355 at I-55

Chicago, IL (October 11, 2022) – Early Tuesday evening, October 11, the Illinois State Police and the Chicago Police Department reported a multi-vehicle crash on I-355 in the Chicagoland region.

Several people were injured at the scene of the crash. Local authorities claimed that the police arrived at the site of the accident around 7:30 p.m., that the northbound I-355/Veterans Memorial Tollway at I-55 was stopped, and traffic was backed up for nearly three miles as emergency services worked in the area, and that traffic was heavy back to Finley Road.

Initial reports suggest that a severely injured individual was transported to a local hospital. During the investigation, officials were unable to comment, and more than an hour’s worth of traffic was delayed. A current inquiry is still ongoing.

We wish the injured victims of this vehicle accident a speedy recovery.

Auto Accidents with Injuries in Chicago

Chicago, the third-largest city in the United States, has a population of three million and yearly attracts millions of tourists. Consequently, hundreds of automobile collisions occur yearly on Chicago’s highways due to the sheer traffic.

Traffic-related deaths rose despite the coronavirus pandemic, stay-at-home orders, and social isolation. The Illinois Department of Transportation forecasts a significant rise in speeding by 2020, putting even more motorists at risk.

Drunk driving, excessive speeding, and reckless driving led to a substantial number of deaths on the city’s roads. Cook County is the most dangerous county in Chicago for drivers.

Consequently, persons injured in motor vehicle crashes brought on by the negligence of another are more susceptible. Additionally, they are often responsible for covering their own medical expenses. When a person has a catastrophic injury, they may also feel mental anguish as a result of escalating medical costs, intense or long-term pain, and rehabilitation.

To launch a lawsuit, at least one of the following conditions must be met. If you were injured in an accident that was not your fault, you should immediately contact a car accident attorney in Chicago.

  • "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.
