Abels & Annes

Chicago personal injury lawyer to take on Illinois truck accident case

Illinois accident attorneys at Abels & Annes have entered into an agreement to represent a Shorewood resident that was injured in a Will County truck versus car crash. The collision occurred on Interstate 80 near Larkin Road in Joliet, Illinois.

Our client was driving his 1994 Pontiac Bonneville eastbound in the right lane of the highway. At that time a semi truck was in the eastbound left lane. The truck driver moved his vehicle to the right Lane and failed to observe our client, striking the Pontiac on the driver’s side of the vehicle. This caused the plaintiff’s vehicle to fishtail. The Pontiac was heavily damaged in the crash.

The Illinois State Police handled the accident investigation. After interviewing the parties involved, they issued the truck driver citation for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident. The trucker admitted to police that he never saw the plaintiff’s vehicle.

Our client sustained low back and neck injuries in the accident. He was seen a short time later at St. James Hospital where he was examined by physicians and prescribed hydrocodone for pain.

Over the days following the accident his pain worsened. He is now undergoing treatment with a medical doctor.
