Chicago, IL – Multi-Vehicle Wreck, Injuries on I-90 Outbound at Nagle & Montrose Aves

Chicago, IL - Multi-Vehicle Wreck, Injuries on I-90 Outbound at Nagle & Montrose Aves

Chicago, IL (August 22, 2022) – On the evening of Tuesday, August 22, two cars collided in a rear-end incident on a major highway in the Chicago region.

Numerous police vehicles and rescue personnel were consequently sent to the Kennedy area. The Chicago Police Department dispatched officers to the intersection of I-90 Eastbound and Nagle Avenue at approximately 7:45 p.m. As you approach Montrose Avenue, the rightmost lanes are closed due to an accident involving two vehicles. Reports indicate that one patient was brought by ambulance to a hospital in the Chicago region for treatment.

Police are still investigating, but they haven’t found anything new. However, the CPD has requested that anyone with information regarding this matter get in touch with them.

The people involved in today’s multiple-vehicle accident are in our thoughts.

Statistics on Accidents and Injuries in the Chicago Area

Statistics on car crashes in 2013 in Illinois show that there were about 97,000 accidents involving Illinois drivers. More than 1,025 persons have lost their lives as a result of these more than 910 incidents. The three leading causes of fatal car accidents are intoxicated driving, hitting a fixed object, and excessive speed.

The majority of fatalities and severe injuries in Cook County occur at high-volume crossings and on four- and six-lane freeways. According to previously published statistics, the Chicago metropolitan area accounts for more than a quarter of all traffic accidents in the state of Illinois.

Unfortunately, it is usually the victims of car accidents who end up footing the tab for the negligence of others. The immediate physical impacts of an accident are often the only thing on people’s minds, and they fail to consider the long-term psychological and financial effects. People who have suffered emotionally as a result of a tragedy may also file a claim for damages. If you were not to blame for the car crash, you should get in touch with a Chicago lawyer immediately.

If another driver caused an accident that left you injured, you have the right to hold them financially responsible under Illinois law. If you’ve been in a car accident in Illinois, you should contact a local attorney right away. You may find it difficult to negotiate a reasonable payment with the insurance company representing the irresponsible driver without legal representation.

  • "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.
