Edens, IL - Two-Car Accident on I-90/94 at 59th St Injures Victims

Edens, IL (March 16, 2023) – According to local authorities on Thursday evening, March 16, a multi-vehicle accident occurred in the Edens area of the greater Chicago metropolitan region.

All local sources confirmed that two automobiles likely collided in a rear-end accident on I-90/94 Outbound around 59th Street. The wreck, which occurred at 10:10 p.m., allegedly caused injuries to several people and shut down most of the highway’s lanes, per early reports from the Chicago Police Department.

While their present conditions are unknown, two victims reportedly required treatment for minor to severe injuries at a nearby hospital.

According to the most recent information, no citations have been issued in connection with the event. Investigations into the accident’s surrounding circumstances continue in the interim.

Our thoughts are now with the wounded victims and their families.

Multi-Vehicle Crashes in Chicagoland

Per official figures, at least 90,000 individuals were injured in automobile accidents in Illinois in 2013. Tragically, more than 900 of these crashes also resulted in the deaths of almost 650 persons. According to authorities, collisions with stationary objects, drunk or drugged driving, and excessive speed were the main contributors to fatal car accidents.

Most of these and other traffic events in and around Cook County occur at busy junctions. And according to the latest state data, the Chicago metropolitan region accounts for one-fourth of all vehicle accidents in Illinois.

Automobile accident victims are often wrongly expected to pay out of pocket for their injuries because of the negligence of others. Patients must deal with mental trauma and stress on top of mounting medical costs, horrifying physical injuries, and other financial problems.

Thankfully, you would have access to a range of legal remedies if one of these circumstances caused harm to you or a member of your family. If you were not at fault for the crash, speak with a Chicago car accident lawyer right away.

In Illinois, you have the right to seek for justice and reasonable compensation if you were hurt in an automobile accident brought on by the negligence or inattention of another motorist.

  • "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.
