Injuries Reported in Chicago Auto Accidents
According to Illinois authorities, roughly 67,455 auto accidents resulted in 94,165 injuries to those involved in these collisions. Moreover, around 950 fatal incidents killed more than 1,030 victims. The deadliest accidents, authorities report, were caused by a vehicle colliding with a stationary object, drunk or drugged drivers, and excessive speed.
Regrettably, these and other types of traffic accidents are unfortunately commonplace in and around Cook County, with many occurring at heavily trafficked junctions. In fact, per state officials, the Chicago metropolitan region accounts for nearly one-fourth of all vehicle accidents in the Prairie State.
When those involved in a preventable traffic accident are wounded as a result of someone else’s carelessness, they and their families bear the brunt of the consequences. This is true regardless of how the incident occurred. Victims must deal with the stress and trauma of emotional pain, as well as mounting medical bills, not to mention painful physical injuries and other related financial obstacles.
