Chicago, IL – Multi-Driver Crash, Injuries on I-294 at Stevenson Expy & Archer Ave

Chicago, IL - Multi-Driver Crash, Injuries on I-294 at Stevenson Expy & Archer Ave

Chicago, IL (February 26, 2023) – On Sunday afternoon, February 26, police units were sent to the scene of a car accident that had occurred on a highway in the Chicago region.

The Chicago Police Department was alerted at 3:50 p.m., and officers reached the scene on I-294 shortly thereafter. A two-car accident occurred just before the exit to Interstate 55/the Stevenson Expressway and Archer Avenue, per the Chicago PD. One person was taken by ambulance to the hospital after they sustained injuries in the wreck, but their current condition is unknown.

Despite the absence of fresh leads, the investigation persists. In the meantime, the Chicago Police Department has issued a witness call and continues to investigate the crash.

The injured victims remain in our thoughts at this time.

Traffic Accidents in Chicago

The annual number of car accidents in Illinois is estimated to be 95,000. Over 920 distinct incidents resulted in the deaths of approximately 1,010 people. Most fatal car accidents involve one or more of the following factors: intoxicated drivers, collisions with fixed objects, and excessive speed.

Death or major injury-causing accidents occur often on or near busy streets in Cook County. More than a quarter of all traffic incidents in the state of Illinois occur in and around the greater Chicago metropolitan area, according to recently released data.

When an accident occurs, the victim is often made to pay the price for the carelessness of the other motorist. The exorbitant price of treatment adds emotional and financial stress to the patient’s already difficult situation.

In addition to physical harm, victims may seek recompense for the emotional distress brought on by the disaster or the unjustifiable loss of a loved one. Do not hesitate to contact a Chicago car accident attorney if you or a loved one has been wounded in a crash that was not your fault.

If another driver’s negligence or illegal behavior caused your auto accident injuries, you have the right to seek justice and financial recompense in Illinois.

  • "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.
