Gary, IL – Injury Car Accident on I-80/94 at Grant St Under Investigation

Gary, IL - Injury Car Accident on I-80/94 at Grant St Under Investigation

Gary, IL (August 28, 2022) – Two automobiles crashed while reversing in the Gary area outside of Chicago on Sunday, August 28.

The scene of the accident was swarmed by police and emergency vehicles, as seen by television reports. On the eastbound side of I-80/94 at Grant Street in Gary, police officers arrived at 5:50 p.m. to begin their investigation. As traffic piled up at the Illinois–Indiana border, one injured person was reportedly transferred by EMS to a hospital.

Although the inquiry is ongoing, the police have not released any fresh details. However, the GPD has requested that anybody with details about the incident get in contact.

We wish the victims of today’s multi-vehicle collision a swift and full recovery.

Injury Car Crashes Across Illinois

Nearly 97,000 accidents occurred in Illinois in 2013, according to police data. Nearly 1,025 people have lost their lives as a result of these 910 incidents. Tragically, the three leading causes of fatal car accidents are drunk driving, striking a stationary object, and excessive speed.

The majority of fatalities and serious injuries in Cook County occur on highways with four or six lanes of traffic. Moreover, a quarter of all accidents in the state of Illinois take place in the Chicago metropolitan region, according to publicly accessible figures.

Car accident victims sometimes end themselves footing the bill for someone else’s irresponsibility. Accidental harm to one’s psyche and bank account is often overlooked in favor of more visible bodily harm. Those who have suffered emotional distress as a direct result of the disaster are also eligible to file a claim for damages. If you’re a Chicago resident who was harmed in an automobile accident due to another driver’s carelessness, you should contact an attorney right away.

If someone else’s negligence caused your injuries in a car accident, you have the legal right to seek financial restitution in the state of Illinois. If you were hurt in a car accident in Illinois, you should talk to a lawyer about your options. You may have trouble negotiating a reasonable payment with the negligent driver’s insurance company if you don’t have legal representation.

  • "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.
