Injuries From Chicago Motor Vehicle Crashes

The Federal Highway Administration (FHA) reports almost 2.5 million accidents annually at congested junctions, major roads, and interstates. The majority of these collisions are caused by inattentive or left-turning motorists. According to statistics, over 46% of all automotive accidents in the United States occur at these crossings.

Unfortunately, traffic accidents are frequent in Cook County, with many happening at heavily used intersections. A quarter of all car accidents in Illinois, according to state authorities, occur in and around the Chicago metropolitan area.

When people are injured due to the negligence of others, they and their families face the brunt of the repercussions. Regardless matter how the event happened, this is true. Victims must endure tremendous mental anguish, hefty medical expenses, and financial hardships.

If you were harmed in one of these situations or lost a family member as a result of one of these incidences, you may have a variety of legal remedies available to you. After being involved in an event that was not your fault, you should immediately contact a Chicago automobile accident attorney.

In the event that you were injured in an automobile accident in Illinois due to another driver’s irresponsibility or inattention, you have the legal right to seek justice, as well as fair and complete compensation.

  • "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.
