Stevenson, IL - Multiple-Car Wreck, Victim Injuries on I-55 Inbound at Clarendon Hills Rd

Stevenson, IL (October 10, 2022) – On Monday night, October 10, the Stevenson Police and the Chicago Police Department responded to an accident involving two automobiles on the Clarendon Hills Road exit ramp off Interstate 55.

It was at around 6:30 p.m. when police officers started their investigation on the Inbound side of the motorway. Officials said there were long backups before Clarendon Hills Road and the Veterans Memorial Tollway, and paramedics and police officers were sent to the location to assess the situation and treat any wounded parties. The initial accident also resulted in a vehicle fire, which Chicago Fire Rescue units responded to extinguish.

There has been no confirmed victim toll, but news footage showed at least two people being taken to the hospital.

However, the cops have not provided any updates. The Stevenson Police Department has asked that anybody with more information about the event get in touch with them.

We hope for a full and speedy recovery for the injured victims involved in today’s wreck.

Car Crashes & Victim Injuries in Chicago

More than 1,025 persons lost their lives in 910 separate accidents in Illinois in 2013. Analysts have shown that speeding, hitting a stationary object, and driver inattention are the major causes of fatal car accidents in the state.

The majority of deaths and severe injuries in Cook County occur on four- and six-lane roads. Furthermore, 26% of all Illinois accidents occur in the Chicago metropolitan area.

Victims of car accidents often bear the costs of another driver’s carelessness. Also, after such tragic occurrences, injury to one’s mind and wallet may be just as destructive as damage to one’s bones. Any Chicagoan injured in a vehicle accident caused by another driver’s negligence should immediately get in touch with a lawyer.

If you were hurt in a vehicle accident that wasn’t your fault, you may sue the negligent party in Illinois and collect damages. Talking to an attorney experienced in vehicle accidents in Illinois may help you understand your rights and alternatives after a crash.

  • "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.
