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

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

Edens, IL (March 16, 2023) – Authorities report that on the evening of March 16th, a multi-vehicle accident took place in the Edens neighborhood of the Chicago metropolitan area.

There was a rear-end collision between two cars on I-90/94 Outbound around 59th Street, as reported by multiple reliable local sources. According to preliminary reports from the Chicago Police Department, the accident occurred at 10:10 p.m. and resulted in multiple injuries and the closure of most lanes on the expressway.

Two victims were allegedly taken to a neighboring hospital for treatment of minor to severe injuries; however, their conditions are unknown.

The most up-to-date information suggests that no citations have been issued in relation to the incident. In the meantime, authorities are still trying to piece together what led to the disaster.

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

Vehicle Collisions in the Chicago Area

At least 90 thousand people were hurt in car accidents in Illinois in 2013, according to official statistics. Sadly, over 900 of these collisions caused the deaths of nearly 650 people. Authorities found that the leading causes of fatal car accidents were running into fixed objects, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and driving too fast for conditions.

In Cook County and the surrounding area, these kinds of incidents tend to happen at major intersections. New data from the state shows that a quarter of all Illinois car crashes occur in and around the Chicago metropolitan area.

Victims of automobile accidents who sustain injuries due to the carelessness of others are frequently forced to shoulder the financial burden of those medical bills alone. In addition to growing medical bills, horrific physical injuries, and other monetary concerns, patients must contend with psychological anguish and stress.

If you or a loved one were hurt as a result of any of these situations, you could seek compensation in a number of different ways. Consult a Chicago automobile accident lawyer without delay if you were not at fault for the collision.

If you were wounded in an auto accident that was the fault of another driver in Illinois, you have the right to seek justice and adequate compensation. Victims of accidents in Illinois who don’t retain legal representation quickly after the incident are less likely to succeed in getting compensation from at-fault drivers’ insurers.

  • "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.
