Chicago, IL - Several Drivers Collide on I-90/94 at Garfield Blvd, Injuring Victims

Chicago, IL (November 30, 2022) – At least one person was hurt earlier on Wednesday, November 30, when a car accident occurred on Interstate 90/94 in the Chicago region.

At approximately 6:45 p.m., a major accident occurred on I-90/94 Dan Ryan Outbound near Garfield Boulevard. At least one person was taken to the hospital by Chicago EMTs, but that person’s status is unknown at this time.

The accident resulted in hours of delays. By nightfall, all of the Chicago Police Department’s investigators had swept the scene, but the investigation is still ongoing at this time.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their loved ones.

Injuries Reported in Chicago Car Accidents

More than 96,000 people were hurt or killed in car accidents in Illinois last year, according to official statistics. There were more than a thousand terrible things that took place, leading to the deaths of more than 970 persons. Government statistics show that drunk driving, collisions with fixed objects, and excessive speeds are major causes of fatal car accidents.

Many accidents in and around Cook County happen at busy intersections. According to the most up-to-date data from the state, almost 25% of all auto accidents in Illinois take place in the Chicago metropolitan area.

The negligent driver is liable for the damages caused by the collision. This remains true whatever the conclusion of the debate. In addition to physical and emotional pain, patients often have to worry about growing medical bills, horrific injuries, and other expenditures.

If you or a loved one have been harmed as a consequence of one of these diseases, you may have legal grounds to launch a lawsuit. If you’ve been in an automobile accident in Chicago and you weren’t to blame, you need to talk to a lawyer as quickly as possible.

If you were hurt in a vehicle accident in Illinois and the other driver was at fault, you have the right to hold that person or company accountable and demand that they pay you in full for your injuries.

  • "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.
