Gary, IL – Victims Hurt in Car Crash on I-80/94 Near Grant St

Gary, IL - Victims Hurt in Car Crash on I-80/94 Near Grant St

Gary, IL (April 24, 2023) – Two automobiles allegedly crashed on a local highway in the Gary area outside of Chicago on Monday, April 24, leaving a handful of victims with injuries.

The scene of the accident was surrounded by police and emergency vehicles, as seen by news reports. On the westbound side of I-80/94 at Grant Street in Gary, police officers arrived at about 7:25 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 new details. However, the GPD has requested that anybody with details about the incident get in contact.

Our thoughts are extended to the injured victims and their loved ones at this time.

Injury Car Crashes Across Illinois

Nearly 97,000 accidents occurred in Illinois in a recent year alone, according to police data. Nearly 1,025 people have lost their lives as a result of these 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 Illinois occur in the Chicago metropolitan region, according to publicly accessible figures.

Thankfully, those who have suffered physical injuries and emotional distress due to a crash are also eligible to file a claim for damages. If you’re a Chicago resident harmed in an automobile accident due to another driver’s carelessness, you should contact an attorney immediately.

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.

  • "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.
