Chicago, IL – Multi-Vehicle Wreck, Injuries on I-94 Inbound at 130th St

Chicago, IL - Multi-Vehicle Wreck, Injuries on I-94 Inbound at 130th St

Chicago, IL (August 9, 2022) – On August 9, in the early evening, two automobiles collided on a local route in the Chicago region, prompting the dispatch of many police enforcement authorities.

The Chicago Police Department was sent to the crash location at 6:10 p.m., and officers arrived shortly afterward on I-94 Inbound, Bishop Ford. Two automobiles moving in the left three lanes collided before the 130th Street exit, forcing traffic to back up. It seems that one patient was carried to the hospital by emergency medical professionals in the Chicago region.

Despite this, the inquiry continues, and no new information has been released. The CPD urged that any witnesses with more information come forward.

We extend our condolences to the relatives of the victims and wish them a complete and swift recovery.

Automobile Accidents in the Greater Chicago Area

According to government records, there were around 97,000 vehicle accidents in Illinois in 2013. Over 910 distinct sorts of these occurrences caused the lives of around 1,010 people. Drunk driving, head-on collisions with immovable objects, and excessive speed are the three most common causes of fatal automobile accidents.

The majority of fatal and injury-causing collisions in Cook County occur at or near busy intersections. According to newly released data from the state of Illinois, more than one-fourth of all traffic accidents occur in the greater Chicago metropolitan region.

Automobile accident victims often bear the consequences of others’ recklessness. In addition to the stress and agony caused by accident-related injuries, patients must struggle with escalating medical expenses and other financial challenges.

Additionally, the victims may be entitled to compensation for their suffering or for the unjustified death of a family member. If you were not at fault for the collision, you must immediately consult with a Chicago car accident attorney.

    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.
