Chicago, IL – Several Drivers Collide on I-94 Dan Ryan at 75th St, Causing Injuries

Chicago, IL - Several Drivers Collide on I-94 Dan Ryan at 75th St, Causing Injuries

Chicago, IL (November 12, 2022) – On the afternoon of Saturday, November 12, a collision on I-94 near Chicago left at least one person critically injured.

I-94 Dan Ryan Inbound at the 75th Street exit was fully shut down by an accident at 3:35 p.m. At this point, it is unclear how the individual(s) who were transported to the hospital by EMTs in Chicago are doing.

The incident led to lengthy traffic backups. Late that night, while an investigation went on, officials from the Chicago Police Department cleansed the area and the debris.

Our thoughts remain with the injured victims and their families at this time.

Illinois’s Rate of Serious Auto Accidents

According to statistics from the state of Illinois, more than 90,000 individuals suffer injuries or pass away in car accidents every year. Around 950 individuals perished as a consequence of more than a thousand tragic incidents. According to authorities, the three leading factors in fatal automobile accidents are speeding, impaired driving, and collisions with immovable objects.

It should come as no surprise that the majority of auto accidents in and around Cook County happen close to busy roads. The Chicago metropolitan area accounts for more than a quarter of all vehicle accidents in Illinois, according to the most current state statistics available.

People injured in preventable traffic accidents must bear the cost of others’ negligence. No matter how the talk turns out, it remains the case. In addition to mounting medical expenses, terrible physical ailments, and other financial worries, patients often have to cope with the stress and agony of mental anguish.

If one of these conditions has caused injury to you or a loved one, you may be able to take legal action. If you were not at fault in an accident, consult with a Chicago automobile accident attorney right away.

If another driver’s carelessness or inattention caused you to be harmed in a car accident, you have the right to pursue justice and get full and fair compensation in Illinois. It may be extremely difficult for victims of vehicle accidents in Illinois to get enough compensation from the at-fault drivers or their insurance companies if they attempt to do it on their own. As a result, victims should consult an attorney as soon as possible after their occurrence.

  • "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.
