Chicago, IL (July 7, 2022) – According to the Illinois State Police and the Chicago Police Department, a significant collision on I-57 Inbound on Thursday night, July 7, resulted in multiple victim injuries.

Traffic was backed up for approximately a mile due to the incident between I-80 and Flossmoor Road. According to further information supplied by local authorities, police responded to the two-vehicle collision at 8:00 p.m.

Victims Hurt in Chicago Automobile Crashes

Chicago, the third-largest city in the United States, is home to roughly three million citizens and attracts millions of tourists annually. It’s hardly surprising that there are thousands of automobile accidents every year on Chicago’s highways, given the number of drivers.

It may come as a surprise to some that despite the coronavirus epidemic, stay-at-home directives, and social distance, there was an increase in mortality from automobile accidents. In 2020, there was a considerable rise in speeding, according to preliminary statistics from the Illinois Department of Transportation. Officials think the absence of automobiles was a significant reason for this shift in driving behavior.

The bulk of traffic deaths happened on city streets, and many were the result of excessive speeding, impaired driving, and inattentive driving. Cook County, where Chicago is situated, was the most dangerous county for drivers in Illinois.

As a consequence, the victims wounded in vehicle accidents caused by someone else’s recklessness are particularly vulnerable. Adding insult to injury, they are also often responsible for their own medical bills. Some of those who are afflicted by these injuries must also contend with the emotional anguish that comes with growing medical bills, as well as horrific long-term pain and rehabilitation.

Luckily, you may be able to file a lawsuit if you meet at least one of these conditions. Regardless of the facts surrounding your crash, an experienced Chicago automobile accident lawyer should be called immediately if you were injured in an accident that was not your fault.

Anyone injured in a car accident that might have been avoided due to the carelessness or indifference of another motorist in Illinois has the legal right to full and fair compensation for their losses and suffering. In Illinois, the odds of an accident victim collecting substantial monetary compensation from negligent drivers or insurance companies increase dramatically if they seek legal counsel as quickly as possible after the occurrence.

  • "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.
