Chicago, IL – Victims Hurt in Car Wreck on I-57 at 127th St

Chicago, IL - Victims Hurt in Car Wreck on I-57 at 127th St

Chicago, IL (December 22, 2022) – According to the Illinois State Police and the Chicago Police Department, an accident on I-57 on Thursday evening, December 22, caused considerable traffic delays and a minor number of casualties.

From 127th Street inbound on I-57, traffic was backed up to 115th Street due to the collision. According to further information supplied by local authorities, officers arrived at the site of the two-car collision at around 9:20 p.m.

Initial reports suggested that one person had severe injuries and was transported to a local hospital. The only information provided by the authorities about the crash was that multiple lanes of Interstate 57 were restricted due to the investigation.

We are thinking about the wounded victims and their families at this time. We hope for their complete recovery.

Car Accident Rate in Chicago

According to official statistics, more than 90,000 persons were wounded in vehicle accidents in Illinois, with more than 67,000 of those occurrences involving automobiles. More than nine hundred fatal automobile accidents also resulted in the deaths of around 950 individuals. Officials estimate that collisions with immovable objects, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and high speeds account for the great majority of fatal automobile accidents.

In and around Cook County, the majority of these and other types of traffic accidents occur at busy junctions and on major roads and interstates. According to the most current state statistics, approximately one-fourth of all auto accidents in Illinois occur in the Chicago metropolitan area.

As a result, victims of negligent driving who receive injuries in vehicle accidents are accountable for their own medical expenses. Those affected must also contend with the mental pain caused by growing medical expenses, severe injuries, and a variety of other types of financial strain.

  • "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.
