Chicago, IL (July 13, 2022) – According to the Illinois State Police and the Chicago Police Department, numerous people were injured in a major incident on Route 394 in the Chicagoland region on July 13, Wednesday night.

Due to the incident, Route 394 northbound at Burville Road was blocked for about a mile. Local authorities supplied a few further information, reporting that police arrived at the site of the two-vehicle collision at around 8:25 p.m.

We hope that the victims of this vehicle accident recover fast.

Victims of Automobile Crashes in Chicago

Chicago, the nation’s third-largest city, is home to three million people, and millions more come annually. It is not unexpected that hundreds of automobile accidents occur each year on Chicago’s highways due to the sheer amount of traffic.

Despite the coronavirus outbreak, stay-at-home orders, and social isolation, the incidence of fatal driving accidents increased. According to the most recent projections of the Illinois Department of Transportation, speeding will considerably rise in 2020. Officials think that the scarcity of accessible automobiles was primarily responsible for this shift in driving behavior.

The bulk of traffic deaths happened on the city’s biggest thoroughfares, and many were caused by drunk driving, excessive speeding, and negligent driving. Cook County in Chicago ranked the most dangerous for drivers.

Consequently, persons wounded in vehicle accidents caused by someone else’s recklessness are particularly fragile. Even worse, women are often responsible for their own medical costs. Some victims of severe wounds must also endure the mental anguish caused by escalating medical expenses, intense long-term pain, and rehabilitation.

You may be eligible to file a lawsuit if at least one of these conditions applies to you. If you were injured in a vehicle accident that was not your fault, you should call an experienced Chicago car accident attorney as soon as possible.

In Illinois, anybody injured in a vehicle accident that might have been avoided due to the carelessness or negligence of another driver is entitled to full and fair compensation for their losses and suffering. The sooner an accident victim in Illinois finds legal counsel after the occurrence, the greater their prospects of winning a substantial monetary settlement from negligent drivers or insurance companies.

  • "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.
