Des Plaines, IL – Several Drivers Collide on Mannheim Rd at Prospect Ave, Causing Injuries

Des Plaines, IL - Several Drivers Collide on Mannheim Rd at Prospect Ave, Causing Injuries

Des Plaines, IL (August 25, 2022) – On Thursday night, August 25, two vehicles were involved in a rear-end collision on a major route in the Des Plaines neighborhood, just within Chicago’s borders.

Images from the scene of the accident on the news showed a large number of police vehicles and rescue personnel. Des Plaines Police Department officers arrived at the intersection of Mannheim Road, Prospect Avenue, and Ash Street at about 11:05 p.m. to conduct an investigation into the crash. According to reports, an ambulance transported one injured person to a hospital in the Chicago region.

Despite continuing their inquiry, the police have released no updated information. However, the DPPD has requested that anyone with details about the incident get in touch with them.

The victims involved in today’s multi-vehicle crash are in our thoughts, with hopes for a full recovery.

Chicagoland’s Serious Car Accidents and Injuries

Over 97,000 accidents in 2013 involved drivers from Illinois, according to statistics collected by local police. More than 1,025 persons have perished as a result of these 910 incidents. The three leading causes of fatal car accidents are intoxicated driving, colliding with a stationary object, and excessive speed.

The majority of fatalities and serious injuries in Cook County occur at high-volume crossings and on four- and six-lane freeways. More than a quarter of all traffic incidents in Illinois take place in the Chicago metropolitan region, according to data that has already been made public by traffic researchers.

Victims of car crashes often end up paying the price for the negligence of others. The mental and financial costs of accidents are often overlooked in favor of the immediate physical ones. People who have suffered emotional distress as a direct result of the disaster are also eligible to file a claim for damages. If you were wrongly accused of causing an auto accident and you live in Chicago, don’t hesitate to contact a lawyer.

If an accident that you were injured in was caused by another driver, you could file a claim against that driver for damages in Illinois. If you’ve been hurt in a car crash in Illinois, it’s a good idea to speak with a local attorney. You may have trouble negotiating a reasonable payment with the negligent driver’s insurance company if you do not have legal representation.

  • "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.
