Illinois auto accident attorneys file Cook County lawsuit against DUI driver

Chicago injury lawyers at Abels & Annes, working as co-counsel with the Elman law group, have filed a lawsuit against a drunk driver for his involvement in an April, 2009 auto accident. The collision took place in the 9100 block of S. Jeffery Blvd. in Chicago.

The plaintiff was driving southbound on Jeffrey when the defendant, who was traveling northbound in a Mercury Tracer, crossed the centerline and struck our client’s Ford Explorer. The accident was witnessed by a Chicago Fire Department Battalion Chief who verified the above version of events.

After the accident, the Chicago Police Department came to the scene. They charged the defendant was driving under the influence of alcohol.

The plaintiff was taken by ambulance to Jackson Park Hospital for back, neck, shoulder and left knee injuries sustained in the accident. She later had additional medical treatment at a family health center in Chicago.

The DUI driver was taken by ambulance to Northwestern Memorial hospital. At that time blood was taken from the defendant which showed he had a .324 blood-alcohol level, over four times the legal limit.
