Chicago, IL (July 14, 2022) – In the early evening of Thursday, July 14, the Illinois State Police and the Chicago Police Department reported a multi-vehicle accident on I-294 in the Chicagoland region. The crash left a number of people injured at the scene.

According to local officials, the police arrived at the site of the collision at 6:10 p.m. For almost a mile, I-294 southbound at 75th Street was shut down while responders worked in the area.

A man with serious injuries was sent to a local hospital, according to initial reports. While the investigation was ongoing, officials were unable to comment, and several lanes of traffic were shut down for more than an hour.

We fully hope that the victims of this vehicle accident get well soon.

Accident Victims in Chicago

Chicago, the third-largest city in the United States, has a population of three million people, and millions more come to visit each year. Thus, hundreds of automobile accidents occur on Chicago’s freeways each year because of the sheer amount of traffic.

Deaths from car accidents rose despite the coronavirus pandemic, stay-at-home orders, and social isolation. The Illinois Department of Transportation predicts that speeding will rise dramatically by 2020, putting many drivers even further at risk.

Drunken driving, excessive speeding, and irresponsible driving were all factors in a large number of the city’s traffic deaths. Cook County is Chicago’s most dangerous for motorists.

Consequently, persons injured in vehicle accidents caused by someone else’s negligence are particularly at risk. On the other hand, they are also frequently forced to pay for their own medical care. When someone is seriously injured, they may also have to deal with the emotional anguish that comes with the mounting medical bills, agonizing long-term pain, and rehabilitation that comes along with it.

In order to file a lawsuit, you must meet at least one of the following conditions. A Chicago car accident lawyer should be contacted quickly if you were injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault.

If a driver’s carelessness or negligence caused an Illinois automobile accident that might have been avoided, the victim is entitled to full and fair compensation for their losses and suffering. One of the best ways to get a large payout from negligent drivers or their insurance companies is to hire an Illinois accident attorney as soon as possible.

  • "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.
