Chicago Truck Accident Law Firm: Woman Files Illinois Personal Injury Lawsuit Over Multi-Auto Collision on Interstate 57

A woman who says she sustained permanent injuries in an Illinois multi-vehicle accident is suing KD Express, one of its drivers, and the executor of a dead man’s estate for personal injury. Elizabeth Jackson says she experienced permanent pain, disability, mental anguish, and disfigurement from the truck-auto accident and she is seeking over $225,000 plus costs.

According to her Illinois personal injury complaint, filed in Madison County Circuit Court, Jackson was injured last November on I-57 when her Dodge Charger was struck by a 2007 Chevrolet Impala driven by David A Jack. Jack’s vehicle swung into Jackson’s lane after it was struck by a 2007 International Ha Trucktractor. Jack died in the deadly Illinois truck crash.

Now, Jackson is accusing truck driver Brian DeAngelis of hitting Jack’s car and failing to reduce his speed. She contends that Jack was negligent when he drove on I-57 at a speed lower than the posted speed limit.

If you have been injured in an Illinois auto accident, there may be more than one party that can be held liable for your injuries. This is why you should speak with an Illinois auto crash law firm who is experienced in dealing with all kinds of motor vehicle accidents. Truck accidents, car collisions, motorcycle accidents, train crashes, and pedestrian accidents are very different kinds of traffic accidents, which is why you need to speak with someone who understands the nature and complexities associated with the type of collision that you were involved in. In certain cases, the liable person may be deceased, and there are steps that your attorney can take to make sure that you recover from the person’s estate.

In many cases, serious injuries will lead to costly medical expenses and time off work. You will need all of the financial help you can get to pay for the services that you need to heal and recover, as well as be able to take care of living expenses in the event that you have to take days off from your job without pay.
