Chicago, IL – Victims Hurt in I-90 Kennedy Auto Accident at Lawrence Ave

Chicago, IL - Victims Hurt in I-90 Kennedy Auto Accident at Lawrence Ave

Chicago, IL (November 21, 2022) – As of Monday afternoon, November 21st, one individual was reportedly injured in a car accident on Interstate 90 in the Chicago area.

At around 3:15 p.m., a major accident happened on Kennedy Expressway, not far from Lawrence Avenue. A Chicago EMS crew delivered a patient to the hospital, but the patient’s condition is still unclear.

There was a two-hour backup due to the event. Around 5:00 p.m., the Chicago Police Department had concluded its sweep. Although an investigation has been launched, no more details have been made available at this time.

The injured victims and their loved ones are in our thoughts.

Car Accidents in Chicagoland

At least 95,000 people were injured and 400 people were killed in vehicle-related incidents in Illinois in 2017. There were about a thousand tragic occurrences, and around 970 individuals lost their lives as a consequence. Most fatal automobile crashes include either excessive speeding, intoxicated driving, or collisions with immobile objects.

Near or at major intersections is where most accidents occur for motorists in Cook County. Moreover, in the last several years, the greater Chicago region has been responsible for more than 26% of all vehicle accidents in the state of Illinois.

Everybody who sustains damages in a traffic accident that might have been avoided should review their legal options in the aftermath. This is particularly apt considering the ongoing mental anguish and stress after a car wreck adds to the patient’s burden of mounting medical bills, severe injuries, and other financial issues.

Thankfully, there may be legal recourse available if any of these problems have harmed you or a loved one. A Chicago car accident attorney should be contacted immediately if you were harmed in a crash that wasn’t your fault.

When a vehicle accident is not your fault, the injured party has the legal right to seek compensation in Illinois. What’s more, putting off negotiations with the at-fault drivers and their insurers might make the compensation process more difficult.

  • "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.
