Chicago injury lawyer to represent woman injured in Interstate 290 car accident

Chicago car accident lawyers at Abels & Annes have entered into an agreement to represent a South side woman who was injured in a rear end collision on the Eisenhower Expressway. The accident happened in September of 2010 in the eastbound lanes around 1st Avenue in Maywood, Illinois.

Our client was traveling at a normal rate of speed when she noticed a vehicle approaching behind her at a very high rate of speed. The speeding vehicle then struck the plaintiff’s vehicle from behind.

The Illinois State Police responded to the accident. After an investigation, the trooper issued the at fault driver a ticket for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident. The driver told police he wasn’t paying attention at the time of the collision.

At the scene of the accident our client immediately had an onset of neck and back pain, left arm pain and severe headaches. She was seen a short time later at the St. Bernard Hospital emergency room. There she was examined by physicians and given pain medication.

Due to ongoing severe pain, she is now seeing a medical doctor. It is not yet known what her course of treatment will consist of.

The at fault driver is insured by Travelers.
