Chicago, IL - Injuries Reported in Multi-Vehicle Wreck on I-290/Eisenhower at Ashland Ave

Chicago, IL (September 5, 2022) – The Chicago Police Department was called to an accident involving two vehicles on the Ashland Avenue exit ramp from Interstate 290 on Monday night, September 5th.

On the I-290/Eisenhower Outbound near Ashland Avenue, police began their investigation at around 9:30 p.m. There were reportedly huge delays that extended back to Morgan Street, and police and paramedics were sent to the scene to investigate and treat any injuries. There was a vehicle fire caused by the initial collision, and Chicago Fire Rescue crews put it out.

There is no official count of casualties, but at least two persons were seen being transported to the hospital via news footage.

However, there have been no updates from the police.

All of our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of today’s accident as they make a complete and rapid recovery.

Traffic Accidents and Injuries in the Chicagoland Area

Throughout 2013, more than 1,025 people died in 910 different accidents throughout the state of Illinois. Researchers have found that three of the leading causes of fatal car accidents in the state are excessive speeding, colliding with a stationary object, and driver distraction.

Major accidents on Cook County’s four- and six-lane highways account for the county’s highest number of fatalities and serious injuries. Additionally, the Chicago metropolitan region is responsible for 26% of all accidents in the state of Illinois.

Accident victims often end up paying the price for another driver’s recklessness. In addition, after seeing such horrors, damage to one’s mind and pocketbook may be just as devastating as physical harm. Any Chicago resident who sustains injuries in a car crash that they believe was caused by another driver’s carelessness should get in contact with an attorney without delay.

In Illinois, you may file a personal injury lawsuit against another party who was irresponsible and get compensation for your losses if you were wounded in a car accident that wasn’t your fault. If you were involved in a car accident in Illinois, it might be beneficial to speak with a lawyer who specializes in cases like yours. It can be difficult to handle negotiations with the negligent driver’s insurance company on your own.

  • "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.
