Chicago truck accident attorney takes on new case

Illinois semi truck crash lawyers at Abels & Annes have agreed to represent a group of Chicago residents that were injured when the vehicle they were traveling in was rear-ended. The truck accident occurred on Interstate 94 just outside of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.

The plaintiffs were at a complete stop in traffic headed westbound on the interstate when the driver of a tractor-trailer/18 wheeler failed to slow in time and rear-ended their vehicle. Witnesses to the accident stated that the defendant was traveling too fast for conditions on the road.

The accident was investigated by the Wisconsin State Police. After interviewing the parties, the state troopers issued moving violations to the defendant truck driver.

Three of the passengers riding in the plaintiff’s vehicle were children. They were all taken to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. The driver of the vehicle sustained neck and back injuries, and an adult passenger sustained back injuries. They are both treating with an orthopedic doctor in the Chicago area.
