Chicago, IL – Victims Hurt in I-90/94 Car Accident at Ohio St

Chicago, IL - Victims Hurt in I-90/94 Car Accident at Ohio St

Chicago, IL (September 16, 2022) – Two automobiles collided on Interstate 90/94 in Chicago on Friday evening, September 16, prompting a police reaction.

At 11:30 p.m., police were looking into an accident involving two to three cars on Ohio Street. Due to the miles-long traffic gridlock, law enforcement and medical professionals were sent to the scene to investigate and treat any victims who may have been injured in the crash. One of the automobiles involved in the collision caught fire after the accident, but Chicago Fire Rescue was able to extinguish it.

The number of victims is unknown; however, according to news footage showing Chicagoland EMTs on the scene, two persons were seen being taken to the hospital by ambulance.

In any case, the police have not released any further information and are continuing their investigation.

We send our best wishes for the injured victims’ complete and swift recovery at this time.

Deaths and Serious Injuries in Chicago Car Accidents

In 2013, around 1,025 people died in Illinois as a result of 910 separate accidents. Excessive speed, collisions with immovable objects, and driver distraction have all been recognized as important causes of fatal car accidents in the state.

A high frequency of serious crashes and fatalities occur on Cook County’s four- and six-lane highways. Furthermore, the Chicago metropolitan region accounts for 26% of all accidents in Illinois.

Accident victims often pay the price for other drivers’ careless behavior on the road. Furthermore, witnessing such occurrences may cause physical, psychological, and financial trauma. Accident victims in Chicago who believe their injuries were caused by the carelessness of another motorist should contact an attorney right away.

A victim of an accident that was not their fault in Illinois may file a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party in order to collect compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. If you have just been involved in an automobile accident in Illinois, you should consult with a lawyer who specializes in such matters. It may be difficult to negotiate a settlement with the at-fault motorist’s insurance company on your own.

  • "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.
