Elmhurst, IL (July 2, 2022) – According to the Illinois State Police and the Elmhurst Police Department, a collision on westbound Route 38/Roosevelt Road on July 2, Saturday evening, caused major injuries.

According to early reports, one individual suffered significant injuries and was taken to a local hospital. Several lanes of Roosevelt were restricted due to the ongoing investigation, but police did not give any other details regarding the collision.

We are thinking about the injured accident victims and wish them a swift recovery.

Serious Injuries in Elmhurst Automobile Accidents

According to official statistics, around 67,000 automotive accidents occurred in Illinois, resulting in at least 94,000 injuries. Furthermore, 930 terrible events claimed the lives of over 950 persons. The majority of deadly accidents, according to police, were caused by autos colliding with immovable objects, inebriated or drugged drivers, and excessive speed.

These and other types of traffic accidents are all too prevalent in and around Cook County, with the vast majority occurring at high-traffic junctions and major thoroughfares or interstates. According to the most current state statistics, the Chicago metropolitan area accounts for over a quarter of all Illinois vehicle accidents.

As a result, persons injured in car accidents because someone else was careless must pay for their own treatment. Those suffering from the disease must also cope with the mental misery that comes with growing medical costs, horrible physical injuries, and various sorts of financial trouble.

You may be able to take legal action as a consequence of one or more of these criteria. If you were wounded or experienced other losses in a car accident that you did not cause, you should contact a Chicago car accident lawyer straight once.

  • "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.
