Family Sues Towing Company for Chicago Personal Injury After Truck Attempts to Tow Vehicle with Girl Still Inside

The family of Yessina Cruz is suing Tuff Car Co. Inc. for Chicago personal injury involving injuries to a minor. Cruz was injured in 2009 after one of the towing company’s trucks tried to tow away the pickup truck that she was sitting in.

Cruz had just returned home after undergoing an appendectomy. Because she wasn’t feeling well, she remained in the backseat of her dad’s 1993 Ford F-150, which was parked outside their Cicero residence.

The driver of the tow truck saw the pickup and took steps to impound it. Even though the young girl was visible inside the pickup, the Chicago injury lawsuit claims that the truck driver did not check inside the vehicle.

As the truck driver attempted to tow the pickup, Yessina opened the back door and fell out while trying to escape. According to the Chicago injuries to minor complaint, the fall accident caused her stitches to tear. She ended up having to spend days in the hospital and undergo additional medical treatments.

The Chicago personal injury lawsuit is seeking over $50,000 for Yessina’s physical injuries, emotional suffering, and mental trauma.
