Chicago, IL – Victims Hurt in Car Accident on I-94/Tri-State Tollway at Deerfield Rd

Chicago, IL - Victims Hurt in Car Accident on I-94/Tri-State Tollway at Deerfield Rd

Chicago, IL (April 12, 2023) – One or more individuals were hurt in an automobile collision on the Tri-State Tollway (I-94) at Deerfield Road on the afternoon of Wednesday, April 12.

At 2:10 p.m. in the Oak Brook area, all northbound traffic on Interstate 94 was blocked at the exit to Deerfield Road due to the accident. At this time, authorities say that a patient whose identity has not been revealed has been transferred to a Chicago hospital.

Because of the collision, the roadway was nearly completely closed for about two hours. Authorities in the Oak Brook region and the surrounding area of Chicago were able to clear the scene and remove debris over the course of the initial on-scene inquiry.

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

Motor Vehicle Crashes in the Greater Chicago Area

Most traffic-related deaths and injuries in Cook County have taken place in or around high-traffic thoroughfares. Recent data released by the state of Illinois shows that the greater Chicago metropolitan region accounts for almost a quarter of all traffic incidents in the state.

Sadly, victims of car accidents often bear the consequences of others’ carelessness. Patients with mental illness have to deal with the stress and grief of their condition and the growing expenses of treatment.

Those who have suffered or lost a loved one as a consequence of these injuries may be eligible for financial compensation. Contact a Chicago car accident attorney without delay if you were not at fault for the incident.

In Illinois, if another motorist caused your injuries in a car crash due to their carelessness or inattention, they should pay for your medical bills and other expenses and face punishment. Plaintiffs involved in a vehicle accident in Illinois should contact an attorney as soon as possible after the incident since doing so on their own may make it harder to get a satisfactory settlement from the other driver or their insurance provider.

  • "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.
