Chicago, IL – Man Hurt in Multi-Vehicle Accident at DuSable Lake Shore & Jackson Drs

Chicago, IL - Man Hurt in Multi-Vehicle Accident at DuSable Lake Shore & Jackson Drs

Chicago, IL (April 21, 2023) – In Chicagoland, authorities say the Friday afternoon commute was disrupted by a major accident that resulted in serious injuries.

The collision forced the temporary closure of northbound DuSable Lake Shore Drive just before Jackson Drive, per reports from officers with the Chicago Police Department.

The Chicago Fire Department reported that one individual, identified only as an adult male, was sent to Northwestern Hospital. News footage from the scene showed emergency personnel gathered at the site and working to evaluate all of the victims involved.

Officials are investigating possible causes of the wreck and have not provided further details. The investigation remains active and ongoing in the meantime.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of their full recovery.

Serious Vehicle Accidents in Illinois

Despite a general decline in mortality from other motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian deaths in the United States have climbed by roughly 40% in recent years, many of which are caused by hit-and-runs. Illinois is home to a number of the most populous and walkable cities in the United States, including Chicago and Springfield. In the busy streets of these densely populated locations, pedestrians also face an elevated risk of death or serious injury.

However, hit-and-run accidents can also affect other drivers, where one motorist strikes a car and then leaves the scene following the crash.

In the aftermath of such a terrible event, victims may feel hopeless in the face of their continued physical suffering, extreme mental torment, and/or significant financial obligations. Many of these accident victims do not survive, leaving behind bereaved family members and burial expenses.

If you or a loved one were injured or killed in an auto accident, you might have the right to file a lawsuit. After consulting with a Chicago automobile accident lawyer, you may find that you’re entitled to full and reasonable monetary compensation.

The Illinois Wrongful Death Act allows victims of car accidents caused by the negligence or recklessness of another motorist to file a claim for damages. In the case of a successful lawsuit, the family and dependents of the plaintiff are entitled to compensation.

Thus, family members must consult a lawyer as soon as such an incident occurs in Illinois. The D&W Law Group will do all possible to ensure that you get the maximum compensation to which you are entitled in the event of the loss of a loved one or an avoidable injury.

  • "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.
