$6,521,000 Auto Accident
A 31 year old woman was driving her car eastbound on North Ave. in Lombard, IL when she was struck head-on by a drunk driver. She was then rear-ended by a semi-truck traveling in the same direction. Both impacts caused massive damage to her car. She suffered multiple fractures of her legs, pelvis and wrist, requiring multiple surgeries. She was hospitalized for nearly 5 months post accident. She has very significant difficulty walking today and has multiple scarring over most of her body. A Cook County, IL jury found both the drunk driver and semi-truck driver responsible. The jury awarded our client $6,521,000. In addition, a settlement was reached with the tavern where the drunk driver was drinking for another $60,000.
