Hammond, IL – Injuries Reported in Multiple-Car Wreck on I-80/94 at Calumet Ave

Hammond, IL - Injuries Reported in Multiple-Car Wreck on I-80/94 at Calumet Ave

Hammond, IL (August 5, 2022) – Due to a collision between two cars on a local route, several authorities were dispatched to the site of the incident, which took place in the Hammond area early on Friday morning, August 5th.

The Hammond Police Department was sent to the site of the crash at 7:50 a.m., and they arrived soon afterwards on westbound Interstate 80/94. Two vehicles traveling in the left three lanes are said to have collided before the Calumet Avenue exit, and it seems that one patient was transported to the hospital by Hammond emergency medical personnel.

Nonetheless, the investigation is still ongoing, and no more information has been provided. HPD officials requested that any witnesses with further information come forward.

We send our condolences to the families of the victims and wish for their speedy recovery.

Vehicle Collisions in the Greater Chicago Area

According to official records, there were over 95,000 automobile accidents in Illinois in 2013. Approximately 990 individuals perished directly from over 900 distinct natural catastrophes. Driving under the influence of alcohol, hitting an immovable object head-on, and driving at an unsafely high speed are the three leading causes of fatal vehicle accidents.

The majority of fatal and injury-causing automobile accidents in Cook County occur at or near busy intersections. More than a quarter of all traffic accidents occur in the greater Chicago metropolitan area, according to newly published figures from the state of Illinois.

Victims of motor vehicle accidents often bear the repercussions of the irresponsibility of others. In addition to the stress and suffering associated with accident-related injuries, patients must also contend with increased medical costs and other financial difficulties.

In addition, the victims may be entitled to compensation for their pain and suffering or for the death of a loved one as a result of the injuries. If the accident was not your fault, you must immediately contact a Chicago automobile accident attorney.

If you were injured in a vehicle accident caused by another driver’s negligence or inattention in Illinois, you have the right to seek compensation and justice for your injuries. In Illinois, plaintiffs involved in vehicle accidents are highly encouraged to get legal representation as soon as possible after the occurrence since it may be difficult to secure fair and comprehensive compensation from the other driver or their insurance company without such assistance.

  • "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.
