Chicago, IL – Multiple Drivers Crash on I-90/94 at Diversey Ave

Chicago, IL - Multiple Drivers Crash on I-90/94 at Diversey Ave

Chicago, IL (September 29, 2022) – On the evening of September 29th, an automobile collision occurred on Interstate 90/94 in the Chicago region, leaving one person with moderate injuries.

A major accident occurred on Kennedy Street heading outbound near Diversey Avenue at around 8:45 p.m. At least one person was taken to the hospital by Chicago EMS workers, but that person’s status is currently unknown.

There was a two-hour delay because of the accident. By the time nighttime rolled around, the Chicago Police Department had finished clearing the site.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accident Injuries in the Chicago Area

In 2017, around 96,000 people were injured or lost their lives in traffic accidents in Illinois. Nearly 970 people perished as a result of the nearly one thousand horrific occurrences. Excessive speeding, intoxicated driving, and collisions with stationary objects are the three most common causes of fatal car accidents.

It has been found that busy intersections in and around Cook County are the most common places for car accidents to happen. Recent statistics show that the greater Chicago area accounts for more than a quarter of all auto accidents in the state of Illinois.

The negligent driver is accountable for compensating anyone who suffers monetary harm as a result of a preventable car crash. One fact survives as the talk winds down. As if dealing with rising medical costs, serious injuries, and other financial concerns weren’t enough, patients now have to deal with the stress and misery of mental anguish.

If you or a loved one has suffered harm due to having to deal with one of these conditions, you may be entitled to take legal action. If you were hurt in an automobile accident in Chicago and it wasn’t your fault, you should consult an attorney as soon as possible.

If you were hurt in an auto accident that was someone else’s fault in Illinois, you could file a claim for damages. If you’ve been in an accident in Illinois, you should talk to an attorney as soon as possible thereafter. Waiting might make it harder to pursue a reasonable settlement with the drivers who caused the accident and their insurance carriers.

  • "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.
