Chicago, IL – Injury-Causing Wreck Reported on I-294 at Ogden Ave

Chicago, IL - Injury-Causing Wreck Reported on I-294 at Ogden Ave

Chicago, IL (December 28, 2022) – On December 28, in the late afternoon, the Illinois State Police and the Chicago Police Department received reports of a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 294.

According to initial accounts from the site, the collision happened at about 2:00 p.m. and caused at least two injuries. As emergency personnel worked in the area, the northbound side of I-294, also known as the Tri-State Tollway, close to Ogden Avenue was closed, and traffic began piling up. According to the authorities, the left lanes leading all the way back to Finley Road were extremely jammed.

Initial information from authorities on the site stated that one or two injured people were sent to a local hospital, and broadcast video showed a semi-truck that had flipped over at the scene. However, no other information was provided, and the inquiry continues.

We are thinking of the injured victims and their families at this time.

Car Accident Frequency in Chicago

Chicago is the third-largest city in the United States and a well-known tourist attraction, with a population of three million. Due to the city’s heavy traffic, hundreds of automobile accidents occur yearly in Chicago, putting drivers and passengers at risk.

Despite the coronavirus epidemic, stay-at-home orders, and greater social isolation, traffic-related mortality climbed. By 2020, the Illinois Department of Transportation anticipates that speeding will have greatly increased, putting more drivers at risk.

Numerous lives have been lost on metropolitan roadways as a consequence of intoxicated, speeding, or otherwise negligent drivers.

Consequently, victims of automobile accidents who were not at fault are in a more dangerous position. Typically, they are also responsible for paying for any necessary medical care. Such an event’s emotional impact may be as devastating as its physical and monetary implications.

Before bringing a lawsuit, one of the following conditions must be met. If you or a loved one were harmed in a car accident that was not your fault, you should immediately contact an auto accident attorney in Chicago.

If the carelessness or negligence of another motorist might have averted an accident in Illinois, the injured party is entitled to compensation. Employing an accident attorney in Illinois as soon as possible is one of the most efficient ways for negligent drivers to get considerable compensation from insurers.

  • "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.
