Chicago, IL – Three Adults, One Child Hurt in Vehicle Collision at 83rd & State Sts

Chicago, IL - Three Adults, One Child Hurt in Vehicle Collision at 83rd & State Sts

Chicago, IL (March 24, 2023) – A state trooper from Illinois and four other persons, including a child, were injured in a Chatham-area collision on Thursday, March 23.

The incident occurred at the 83rd Street and State Street intersection, just off the Dan Ryan Expressway.

The Chicago Fire Department shared images of two damaged vehicles at the site. The Fire Department said that a state trooper and four victims, including a 10-year-old child, were hurt.

All accident victims were sent to local hospitals in good condition.

Per officers, a stolen vehicle was involved, though it was unclear which of the two automobiles in the CFD photographs had been stolen. An investigation remains active at this time.

The victims and their families are in our thoughts, and we hope they recover fully soon.

Car Crashes in the Chicago Metro Area

According to official state data, more than 90,000 accidents involving motor vehicles were recorded in Illinois in the last year alone. Over 900 incidents resulted in a total death toll of just under 1,000 people. The primary factors in automobile accidents that result in deaths include head-on collisions with stationary objects, drunk driving, and reckless speeding.

Unsurprisingly, major junctions or close by are where most traffic-related deaths and injuries in Cook County occur. Recent figures from the state of Illinois show that more than a quarter of all traffic accidents occur in the greater Chicago metropolitan region, and all too many are caused by driver negligence.

However, if the victims of such accidents suffer bodily injury or pass away as a consequence, they may be entitled to compensation. You should speak with a Chicago car accident lawyer if you were in an accident that wasn’t your fault.

If you were hurt in an automobile accident due to the carelessness or negligence of another motorist, an Illinois court would award damages and provide justice. Consult a lawyer as quickly as you can if you’ve been in a vehicle accident in Illinois. You can find it difficult to negotiate a reasonable settlement with the other motorist or their insurance company without a lawyer.

  • "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.
