Illinois school bus accident attorneys at Abels & Annes have settled a lawsuit that stems from a June 4, 2008 collision in the Western suburb of Woodridge.
At the time of the accident, our client was a passenger on a Pace bus that was rear-ended by a school bus. The accident happened at 63rd and Woodard. Several other passengers were injured in the bus accident.
The accident was investigated by the Woodridge Police Department. After interviewing the parties involved, they issued the school bus driver a citation for driving too fast for conditions.
Our client was taken by ambulance to Hinsdale Hospital after the accident. There, she was treated for back and neck injuries. X-rays taken at the hospital that were negative for fractures.
Over the next several days, her pain only got worse. She sought follow-up treatment with a chiropractic physician in Bolingbrook, Illinois. There, our client underwent a course of treatment that lasted just under two months. Her pain resolved by the time of her last appointment.
The case settled for $9,500 within weeks after filing a lawsuit.
