At least two people were seen being transferred to the hospital via news footage, although there is no official tally of casualties as of yet.

Rate of Car Accidents Across Chicago

In one recent year alone, well over 1,020 individuals were killed in 910 separate instances throughout the state of Illinois. It has been shown that the primary causes of fatal automotive accidents in the state include high speeds, collisions with stationary objects, and driver distraction.

Four- and six-lane roadways account for the great majority of deaths and severe injuries in Cook County. To add insult to injury, close to 27% of all accidents in the state of Illinois occur in the Chicago metropolitan area.

Typically, when someone else causes an accident, the victims must bear the costs. In the aftermath of such disasters, mental and financial damage may be equally as devastating as physical injuries. Anyone in Chicago who is injured in an automobile accident that they feel was caused by another driver’s negligence should immediately contact an attorney.

If you were injured in a vehicle accident that wasn’t your fault, you might file a personal injury lawsuit in Illinois against the negligent individual who caused your injuries and seek compensation for your losses. After an automobile accident in Illinois, it may be simpler to comprehend your legal choices and rights if you contact a lawyer who specializes in such matters. It may be tough to bargain with the at-fault driver’s insurance carrier on your own.

  • "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.
