Hanover Park, IL – Two-Car Crash, Injuries at East & Briarwood Aves Near Irving Park Rd

Hanover Park, IL - Two-Car Crash, Injuries at East & Briarwood Aves Near Irving Park Rd

Hanover Park, IL (August 2, 2022) – A major accident in the Hanover Park area occurred on Tuesday night, August 2, as a consequence of a collision between two vehicles on a local road.

At 7:00 p.m. in the evening, the Hanover Park Police Department was sent to the scene of the collision, and they arrived shortly after. Two cars traveling in the left three lanes allegedly crashed on the northbound side of East Avenue between Briarwood Avenue and Irving Park Road. It seems that one patient was taken to the hospital by Hanover Park emergency medical services.

Even so, the inquiry is still underway, and no other details have been disclosed.

We extend our sympathies to the victims’ families and hope for the victims’ quick recovery.

Vehicle Collisions in the Chicago Metropolitan Area

According to state statistics, more than 95,000 car accidents occurred in Illinois in 2013. Around 980 people lost their lives as a direct result of over 900 different natural disasters. Driving while intoxicated, colliding head-on with an immovable object, and driving at an unsafely high speed are the three main factors that cause deadly car accidents.

In Cook County, most fatal and injury-causing car accidents occur at or close to busy intersections. According to recently released statistics from the state of Illinois, more than a quarter of all traffic accidents occur in the greater Chicago metropolitan region.

Motor vehicle accident victims often have to deal with the consequences of other people’s carelessness. What’s more, patients must deal not just with the stress and suffering that come with having accident injuries but also with the rising expenses of medical treatment and other financial challenges.

In addition, the victims may be entitled to damages for their pain and suffering as a consequence of the injuries or for the loss of a loved one. You must speak with a Chicago car accident lawyer immediately if the collision wasn’t your fault.

In Illinois, you have the right to pursue compensation and justice for your injuries if you suffered an injury in a car accident resulting from another driver’s carelessness or inattention. In Illinois, plaintiffs engaged in car accidents are strongly urged to get legal counsel as soon as possible after the incident since, without such aid, it may be challenging to obtain just and thorough recompense from the other driver or their insurance provider.

  • "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.
