Mother and Daughter Killed in Illinois Semi-Truck Crash

Lorraine McNeil, 69, and her daughter Kathleen Wilcox, 45, died last week in an Illinois semi-trailer crash on Interstate 80. The two women, who are both from Ottawa, were pronounced dead at the truck accident site. The accident took place at the County Highway 15 and Morris Road intersection a mile south of Marseilles.

According to the Morris Daily Herald, while there are rumble strips and stop signs at the intersection on Morris Road, there are no stop signs on CH 15. Investigators are trying to figure out whether traffic control devices were a factor in the deadly crash. Marseilles Police Chief Jim Hovious calls the intersection where the semi-trailer accident happened a dangerous one where several traffic crash deaths had already occurred.

Police are trying to determine exactly what happened.

Illinois Truck Accidents
If the truck driver did anything that contributed to causing the collision, the women’s family may be able to file an Illinois truck crash claim against the trucker, the trucking company, and other parties involved with the truck, such as the owner of the truck, or the company that is using/leasing the truck. A lot of it will depend on who/what caused the collision.

Time and again, our Chicago tractor-trailer accident lawyers have seen the devastating injuries that can come about from this type of crash and the impact it has on surviving loved ones. We are not afraid to go up against large trucking companies to make sure that you obtain all of the personal injury or wrongful death recovery that you are owed.

Illinois Semi-Trailer Crash on Highway 34 Kills One Trucker

Trucker Bradley Conkle is dead following an Illinois truck accident involving three semi-trucks on Highway 34. The multi-vehicle collision occurred at around 3am on Monday and the road had to be shut down for several hours so clean up crews could do their job.

According to investigators, Conkle appears to have lost control of the white 1996 Kenworth dump trailer that he was driving, which caused the semi-truck to overturn. The semi-truck driven by trucker Danny Brown then crashed into the dump trailer, which was also struck by a semi-trailer operated by James Farmer. Conkle was pronounced dead at the Illinois truck crash site while Farmer and Brown were treated at the hospital for their injuries.

Distracted Driving a Factor in Illinois Tractor-Trailer Crash Causes Multi-Vehicle Collision on I-77 That Sends Two to the Hospital

Tractor-trailer driver James T. Kruger was cited for failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident after allegedly causing a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 77 on Wednesday. Six vehicles were involved in the Illinois 18-wheeler truck accident.

According to police, Kruger didn’t notice that traffic had stopped until it was too late because he was reaching down to throw something in the trashcan. The semi-truck struck and drover over a car that was being towed on the back of the U-Haul, rear-ended the truck, which then hit a Nissan and a Honda. The cars then struck a Mercury Marquis. The impact of the crash lodged the tractor-trailer and U-Haul together, and the two vehicles kept going into the median. Two people were transported to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries from the chain-reaction crash.

Distracted Driving
Once again, distracted driving has likely played a role in causing a collision that could have lead to serious injuries and minor injuries. That said, even minor injuries can take a toll on a Chicago truck crash victim, who may have to take time off work to recover from a sore back, neck problems, aches and pains, and other “minor” injuries.

Motorists cannot afford to take their eyes off the road or their mind off the task at hand. A few seconds of distraction is all that it takes for a catastrophic Illinois traffic crash to occur.

According to the US Department of Transportation, there are three main kinds of distraction:

Visual—eyes are off the road
Cognitive—mind is not on the task at hand
Manual—hands off the steering wheel

Any non-driving task that a driver engages in while driving is distracted driving.

Appeals Court Affirms $23.75M Will County Tractor-Trailer Accident Award Over Man’s 2004 Illinois Wrongful Death

The Third Appellate Court has decided to affirm the $23.75 million Will County, Illinois semi-truck crash verdict awarded over the 2004 multi-vehicle traffic accident on Interstate 55 when a 40-ton tractor-trailer loaded with potatoes that crashed into stopped traffic. The 10-auto collision involved a number of large trucks. The total verdict amount is for three separate causes of action that were consolidated into one civil trial.

The family of Thomas Sanders was awarded $8.5 million. The jury awarded Naperville resident Joseph G. Sperl's family was initially awarded $7.25 million, although the trial court later lowered that amount to $7 million. Aurora resident William Taluc, who was critically injured and broke 17 bones during the Will County tractor-trailer accident, was awarded $7.7 million.

DeAn Henry, the trucker blamed for causing the multi-vehicle pileup, was sentenced to two and a half years probation after she pled guilty to the charges that she falsified her logbook and didn’t slow down her truck to avoid causing an accident. She also had to give up her commercial truck driver’s license for two years. Henry, truck owner CH Robinson Worldwide, and her employer Todd L. Dragonfly were the defendants of this Will County, Illinois semi-truck collision case.

Our Chicago 18-wheeler truck crash lawyers covered this case last year on our blog site. It is so important that victims injured in an Illinois semi-truck collision and their families receive the Will County personal injury or wrongful death damages that they are owed. So much is lost when a loved one dies unexpected. Obtaining injury won’t bring your loved one back but it can provide some relief.

Did a Weak Rear Guard Play a Role in Your Loved One’s Chicago Tractor-Trailer Crash Death?

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is reporting that the rear guards used on big rigs may not be strong enough to prevent a smaller vehicle from rolling under the large truck during a traffic crash. This is disturbing news, seeing as underride truck crashes cause serious injuries and deaths each year. Our Chicago semi-truck accident law firm is all too familiar with the devastating injuries that can result when one has been involved in this type of rear-end truck collision.

The IIHS says that its own vehicle testing showed that current rear guards could fail even when the truck crash is one occurring at a low speed. The Institute is hoping to remedy this problem and has petitioned the government to mandate stronger underrides that can stay in place during a rear-end truck accident. The IIHS also wants this sturdier protection to become a requirement for more trailers and big rigs.

Seeing as, per the IIHS’s analysis of Large Truck Crash Causation Study truck crash cases, underride was a common result in the 115 truck crashes involving a passenger auto hitting a semi-trailer or large truck, the sooner that tougher rear guards are mandated, the better. Also, out of 28 incidents involving someone in a passenger vehicle dying, serious underride damage was a factor in 23 of these accidents.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that about 423 people are killed annually in accidents involving passenger vehicles rear-ending a large truck. Over 5,000 other passenger vehicle occupants end up injured.

If you were injured in any type of large truck crash, do not hesitate to contact our Chicago 18-wheeler truck accident law firm right away. There may be parties who should be held liable for your injuries. Possible liable parties could include the truck driver, the driver of the passenger vehicle that you were a passenger in, a truck manufacturer, or the trucking company.

Illinois Truck Accident Lawsuit Filed in Pedestrian Death

Marilyn Headley is suing truck driver Kevin J. Cobb and Beelman Truck Co. Inc. for wrongful death. Her Illinois truck crash complaint is on behalf of Robert W. Schaefer’s estate.

Schaefer died last year after he was struck by a tractor-trailer driven by Cobb while walking across a Granite City intersection. The intersection was unmarked.

Headly contends that the defendants were negligent. She is seeking over $100,000.

Illinois Wrongful Death
In Illinois, you have two years from the date of injury to file your Chicago wrongful death claim. This may seem like a lot time from now, but in fact, there is a lot that your attorney will need to do to successfully pursue your Chicago semi-truck crash lawsuit and the sooner he/she gets started, the better. Your Illinois injury attorney may have to consult with accident and medical professionals to build your case and determine the full scope of your injuries and the damages you should receive.

Trucking companies can be especially tough when it comes to denying or diminishing liability. What cannot be diminished is the unquantifiable loss of someone’s life—especially when so unexpectedly and in such a traumatic manner in a Chicago tractor-trailer collision.

Pedestrians hit by a large truck will likely sustained serious, if not fatal injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, crush injuries, organ damage, and head injuries. Truckers owe a duty of care to ensure that they aren’t involved in any type of crash, especially as it is the other parties that are most likely to get hurt.

Father and Son Injured in Illinois Truck Crash File $6M Federal Lawsuit

Brian Benning and his son Brett suffered serious injuries on February 1 when they were injured in an Illinois tractor-trailer crash. Their family is suing the Schneider National Carriers trucking company and trucker Jason T. Lawler for $6 million.

In their Illinois personal injury case, the Bennings are accusing Lawler of truck driver negligence. Their complaint contends that the trucker failed to keep control of his large truck, which allowed his semi-trailer to jackknife before crossing the center line on Illinois 75. The family believes that Lawler was going too fast on a snowy day.

Brian, who sustained a traumatic brain injury and other “particularly devastating” injuries, was finally released earlier this month from the ICU. He is now in rehabilitation. Having undergone a number surgeries, Brian's recovery is expected to be long. Brett, whose injuries weren’t as serious, is no longer at the hospital.

The family wants compensation for medical bills, physical pain, mental anguish, and lost wages.

Truck Jacknife Accidents
Common causes of Chicago truck jackknife crashes include:

• Sudden application of the brakes
• Accelerating on a surfaces that has low friction
• Downshifting
• Rushing into a curve
• Loss of control on a slippery road
• Swerving and braking at the same time

Main kinds of Illinois truck jacknife crashes:
Tandem Trailer Jacknife: Involves a truck cab pulling two trailers.

Classic Truck Jacknife: Usually involves the trailer swinging out and the truck cab swinging into it.

Chicago Family Sues Fedex Over Semi-Truck Crash that Claimed Three Lives

The Chicago family of Victor Chacon, 26, Brianna Chacon, 10, and Tatyana Alvarez, 11 are suing FedEx and truck driver George Grimes Jr. over the deadly semi-truck accident that resulted in their wrongful deaths. The three victims died late last month when they were ejected from their vehicle on U.S. Interstate 65. Four other family members, Victor Chacon, 49, Melissa Gonzalez, Yaznylie Chacon, 2, and Victor Chacon, 5, were sent to the hospital for their injuries.

The family was driving back from Florida where the younger adult Victor had just gotten married to Melissa’s best friend when then the catastrophic truck accident happened. According to police, at around 3:30am on February 23, the FedEx semi rear-ended the Nissan Pathfinder SUV that was transporting the Chicago family. Per relatives, the elder Victor Chacon, who is married to Melissa and is the father of the three girls and the two younger Victors, broke two bones in his spine. Yaznylie broke her legs and suffered head trauma. Victor, 5, sustained serious injuries.

With their large trucks, Fedex drivers must be careful not to become involved in a collision. Yet, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, over the years, there have been hundreds of truck crashes involving a FedEx truck. Often, it is the people involved that weren’t in the truck who end up getting hurt. FedEx companies that use large truck include, FedEx Express, FedEx Ground Package System Inc., FedEx Freight, Inc., FedEx Ground Package System Ltd, Fedex Supply Chain Systems, Inc., and FedEx National Ltl., Inc.

Regardless of who owns the large truck that you or a loved one was involved in a traffic crash with, it is important that you explore your legal options. Suing for Chicago truck accident damages is not the same as filing a car accident claim. Getting legal help increases your chances of obtaining the maximum recovery possible.

$5M Illinois Semi-Truck Settlement Reached Between Hospital Corporation and Attorney’s Estate

The estate of Richard J. “Dick” Berry has settled its Illinois truck crash case with OSF Saint Francis Inc. for $5 million. Berry was killed on December 2009 in a two-auto collision at routes 23 and 17 close to Streator.

The deadly Illinois semi-truck accident happened when truck driver David A. deFrance did not stop at a stop sign. The large truck he was driving then struck Berry’s car. OSF Saint Francis Inc. owns the semi-truck that deFrance was driving.

Although nothing can ever compensate you for the loss of a loved one, obtaining Illinois wrongful death recovery can assuage some of the costs and damages while allowing you to hold the negligent party liable. It doesn’t matter whether the liable party is held responsible in criminal court. Your civil case would be completely separate in terms of the legal process and its outcome.

Coping with the death of a loved one is never easy. In addition to the absence of that person in from life and all that is lost along with that—companionship, a life together, loss of a mother, father, son, or daughter—there also may be financial losses, such as those of income, benefits, retirement funds, etc., that your family member would have earned if his/her life had not been cut off so abruptly.

There are specific steps and strategies that can be employed when filing for recovery in a Chicago truck crash.

Bus Driver Files Illinois Truck Accident Lawsuit Over Her Disabling Injuries

A bus driver who was involved in a Pontoon Beach traffic crash two years ago is now suing the truck driver for Illinois truck accident injuries. Denise D. Bourbon says she sustained serious and disabling injuries on February 16, 2009 when the county transit bus she was driving was struck by a large truck.

Bourbon contends that trucker Scotty B. Wentworth drove too fast, did not keep a proper lookout, neglected to yield-the-right of lane, failed to drive within a single line, and did not stop at a stop sign while attempting to make a right turn. The plaintiff says that in addition to her physical injuries, she also suffered emotional distress and could not execute her usual duties.

Bourbon is seeking over $100,000 plus costs. Wentworth’s employer, Howell's Motor Freight, is also a defendant. She claims the freight company was negligent for entrusting the truck to Wentworth when it allegedly knew he would operate the truck in a careless, reckless, and incompetent manner.

Truck crash cases are tough. This is why working with the right Chicago truck accident law firm is so important. Not only are trucking companies often ready to combat allegations of liability, but also determining which parties are responsible can be challenging.

Often, truck logs can often help shed light on whether any Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations were violated. Truck maintenance records can also show whether a truck is up-to-date on its inspections. An experienced Illinois truck crash law firm will know what evidence and data to gather so that you can receive the recovery that you are owed.

Mark Berndsen, a Breese police officer, is suing garbage truck driver Kenny Dale Ewing and Brisk Sanitation Inc. for his Illinois truck crash injuries. Berndsen is seeking over $100,000 in Illinois personal injury compensation.

According to his Illinois truck crash complaint, Berndsen was driving his police car in Breese when his vehicle was struck by a garbage truck driven by Ewing. The trucker/sanitation driver allegedly did not stop at the intersection, which caused him to strike the officer’s patrol car.

Berndsen’s police car rolled over during the collision. He says he hurt his back and neck.

Chicago, Illinois Garbage Truck Accidents
Large and heavy in size, garbage trucks can cause serious Illinois personal injuries. Not only are they challenging to maneuver, but it can also be difficult for the truck driver to see what’s around him/her—especially in the vehicle’s blind spots.

Garbage truck drivers cannot afford to become distracted or disobey traffic laws when driving. They need to pay attention to the activity around them, drive at the speed limit, obey all traffic signs, make sure there aren’t any pedestrians that have suddenly appeared behind the vehicle, and, before proceeding, check that workers riding on the truck are not in the vehicle’s way.

69-Year-Old Olney Woman Killed in Illinois Tractor-Trailer Accident

A 69-year-old woman is dead following a catastrophic Illinois semi-truck crash on Tuesday night. Police say that Patsy J. Witte was driving a sport utility vehicle on Illinois 161 Extension about a mile from Illinois 130 when she collided with the tractor-trailer.

According to a preliminary probe, trucker Daniel H. Greifzu was trying to back his semi-truck, which was using both lanes of travel, into a private driveway, when Witte, failing to realize that the tractor-trailer was in the eastbound lane, struck the large truck with her SUV. She was pronounced dead at the truck crash site. Meantime, Greifzu received a citation for improper backing.

In other recent collision news, a pedestrian was killed in a Chicago truck crash last week in the Bridgeport neighborhood. The city-owned truck was backing up when it hit the pedestrian.

Back-Over Accidents
Backover crashes are a common cause of injuries. In some cases, the driver who is backing up does not see the pedestrian, bicyclist or other vehicle. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, common back-over injuries include injuries to the legs, arms, face, neck, or head, as well as abrasions, contusions, internal injuries, and fractures.

It is important that anytime a vehicle is backing into or out of a lane, driveway, or parking lot, he or she do so in a manner that doesn’t create a dangerous situation for others on the road. Collisions with any type of large truck increase the chances of serious injuries, so drivers have a duty of care to be extra cautious especially when they know they are engaged in an activity that can increase the risk of a Chicago truck crash.
