Chicago Car Accident on the Loop Critically Injures Four People

In Chicago, five people were rushed to the hospital early today following a two-auto collision that occurred on the Loop. The Illinois motor vehicle crash, which occurred at Franklin and Madison streets after 1am, involved a Pontiac Sunfire, which was heavily damaged, and a Chevy Ventura van that landed overturned on a pedestrian crosswalk.

Four of the five people that were injured sustained critical injuries. Two of them were transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital while the other two were transported to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County. The four people riding inside the van declined medical care.

The cause of the Chicago car accident is not known at this time and an investigation is pending.

Every car crash is different, which is why, if you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, it is important that you are represented by an experienced Chicago motor vehicle collision law firm that knows how to investigate and pursue your case. A good Chicago car accident law firm will know how to fight for your right to financial recovery. Not only does this include having the knowledge and experience to examine the evidence and prove liability, as well as advocating on your behalf when dealing with insurers and their legal representation, but your injury attorney must also know know how to assess your injuries and losses so that you receive all the compensation that you are entitled to and need.

Especially during accidents involving catastrophic injuries, your Chicago personal injury lawyer will need to know how to make sure that your ongoing and future medical expenses and any lost wages can be factored into the equation when advocating for your settlement or arguing for your verdict before a Chicago jury.

Spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, severed limbs, and severe burn injuries can take years—if not a lifetime—to cope with. A good Chicago catastrophic injury attorney will have the manpower and resources to make sure that you are taken care of and that your family has what they need.
