Driver Files Illinois Tractor-Trailer Accident Seeking Over $150,000

Samuel Clines is suing Charles K. Foster III, Curt Foster doing business as Foster Brothers' Salvage and Recycling, and Steven R. Hilton for his Illinois tractor-trailer crash injuries. He is seeking a judgment greater than $150,000 plus costs.

According to Clines’ Illinois truck accident lawsuit, on May 30, 2008 he was in O’Fallon and stopped for traffic on West Highway 50 when he was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer being driven by Hilton. Clines contends that the trucker failed to stop his large truck.

The plaintiff is also accusing Hilton of negligent driving, including following too closely behind the vehicles ahead of him, not keeping a proper lookout, driving too fast, failing to properly control his tractor-trailer, and operating his truck in a manner that caused the traffic collision.

Clines says that he sustained injuries to his neck, back, arms, shoulders, spine, ribs, spinal cord, vertebrae, joints, invertebral discs, bones, and skin, and that he suffered neck pain, headaches, back pain, nausea, swelling, nervousness, inflammation, dizziness, the impairment of his natural functions, and limitation of motion. He claims that some of these injuries continue to remain active. Cline says that as a result of his injuries, not only has he incurred medical bills but also his ability to enjoy life has been diminished.

Negligent truckers and their trucking companies can be held liable for a victim’s personal injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one. Illinois truck crash lawsuits can be tough to win without an experienced 18-wheeler truck accident law firm representing you. The sooner you get legal help the easier it will be for your tractor-trailer crash lawyers to begin pursuing your compensation.
