Northbrook, IL (August 27, 2022) – On Saturday, August 27, two cars collided in reverse on a major road in the Northbrook neighborhood, just north of Chicago.

A significant number of police cars and emergency vehicles could be seen at the location of the collision, per news footage. At 4:20 p.m., officers from the Northbrook Police Department arrived at the scene of the incident on northbound Tri-State Tollway/I-294 near Dundee Road to begin their investigation. Reportedly, one wounded individual was taken by EMS to a hospital in the Chicago area.

Fatal Automobile Crashes & Injuries in the Chicago Area

Police reports indicate that Illinois drivers were involved in almost 97,000 accidents in 2013. There have been almost 1,025 fatalities from these 910 occurrences. Regrettably, drunk driving, hitting a stationary object, and driving too fast are the three most common causes of fatal automobile accidents.

Most deaths and severe injuries in Cook County take place at high-traffic intersections and on four- and six-lane motorways. According to publicly available statistics, the Chicago metropolitan area accounts for more than a quarter of all traffic accidents in the state of Illinois.

The victims of vehicle accidents often bear the costs associated with the carelessness of others. Consequences to one’s mind and wallet from accidents are often disregarded in favor of the more obvious physical ones. Those who have experienced mental anguish as a direct result of the catastrophe may also seek compensation. Don’t wait to get in touch with a lawyer if you’re a Chicago resident who was unfairly hurt after a negligent motorist caused your car accident.

In Illinois, you have the right to seek compensation for injuries sustained in an auto accident caused by another party. Consult an Illinois personal injury lawyer if you suffered injuries in a vehicle incident. Without legal assistance, you may have problems obtaining a fair settlement with the insurance company of the irresponsible motorist.

  • "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.
