Chicago, IL – Victims Hospitalized After Truck Accident on I-290 at Mannheim Rd

Chicago, IL - Victims Hospitalized After Truck Accident on I-290 at Mannheim Rd

Chicago, IL (December 11, 2022) — A handful of people were hurt, according to Chicago police, after a car near Eisenhower jackknifed or rolled early on Sunday morning.

Per officials, the accident happened at around 12:45 in the morning close to the Mannheim Road exit on I-290. According to reports, this caused significant traffic bottlenecks on 9th Avenue.

According to the authorities, a couple of the patients were taken to Northwestern Hospital, and they are expected to fully recover. According to the police, the truck driver also sustained injuries; however, it is uncertain how serious they were.

There is still an investigation going on.

Our thoughts are now with the victims who were hurt. We hope for their complete recovery.

Illinois Rollover Vehicle Accidents

Car rollovers are only involved in 4% of all vehicle accidents overall, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but they cause more than 31% of all fatal traffic fatalities. A third of all collision deaths in 2018 were caused by rollover accidents, which claimed over 11,000 car passengers’ lives. 91% of these incidents involving rolling automobiles take place on roads with a 55 mph or higher speed limit.

Every accident might endanger the well-being of the people involved, but rollovers are the most dangerous. The likelihood that victims may have severe neck and head injuries when a car flips considerably rises.

Our Chicago law firm’s personal injury lawyers are aware of how damaging these incidents can be for anybody in a moving vehicle. This is why we exert so much effort to aid in our customers’ recuperation.

Many things, such driver error and faulty auto equipment, may lead to rollover accidents. These incidents might have devastating effects on the victims, regardless of the reason. Injured people must deal with wage loss in addition to high medical expenses and significant property damage. If you suffered injuries in a car rollover brought on by someone else’s negligence, get in touch with an Illinois car accident lawyer to safeguard your legal rights.

An automobile often flips over after a collision because of the enormous force produced. For both drivers and passengers, this dramatically raises the risk of severe or catastrophic injuries.

Among the most hazardous characteristics of a rolling car are roof collapse, cracked windshields, and vehicle fires. Sadly, this suggests that victims may sustain serious injuries, such as full-body trauma and shattered bones, internal hemorrhage, organ damage, or even death.

If you were in a rollover accident, you can suffer permanent disabilities and have a difficult time recovering. You should not be responsible for any expenditures related with the incident if you did not cause it.

If you were hurt in a vehicle accident that wasn’t your fault, speak with a lawyer right away.

  • "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.
