Chicago, IL – Victim Injuries Reported in Car Crash on Cedar Lake Rd at Countryside Ln

Chicago, IL - Victim Injuries Reported in Car Crash on Cedar Lake Rd at Countryside Ln

Chicago, IL (August 11, 2022) – On the evening of August 11, two cars collided at a busy junction in the Chicago region, prompting the deployment of many law enforcement units.

The Chicago Police Department was called to the intersection of Cedar Lake Road and Countryside Lane around 7:30 p.m., and officers responded shortly after receiving the call. A major backup of traffic was caused by an accident involving two automobiles in the left three lanes. Near the greater Chicagoland area, emergency medical services reportedly took one patient to the hospital.

Despite this, detectives are still looking into the matter and have found nothing new thus yet. Those with knowledge were asked to contact the CPD.

We pray for the well-being of the injured and extend our deepest condolences to the victims’ loved ones.

Accidents & Victim Injuries in the Greater Chicago Area

According to statistics, there were around 97,000 vehicle accidents in Illinois in 2013. Over 1,025 people lost their lives in over 910 unique situations. Drunk driving, head-on collisions with fixed objects, and high speeds are the top three causes of fatal car accidents.

Most fatal and injury-causing accidents in Cook County occur at or near heavily used intersections. Recently released data from the state of Illinois shows that the greater Chicago metropolitan region is responsible for more than a quarter of all traffic accidents.

Automobile accident victims often bear the consequences of someone else’s recklessness. After suffering injuries in an accident, patients have to deal with the emotional toll it has on their lives and the financial burden of paying for treatment.

Victims may also be compensated for the wrongful loss of a family member or the mental anguish they endured as a result of the tragedy. Contact a Chicago car accident attorney without delay if you were not at fault for the collision.

You have the legal right to pursue financial compensation and justice if you were injured in a car accident in Illinois that was caused by another driver’s carelessness or inattention.

  • "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.
