Chicago car crash lawyers at Abels & Annes have signed on to represent a South Side woman that was injured in a March, 2011 traffic collision. The accident occurred in the 1800 block of 71st Street around 7:30 AM.
The plaintiff was driving her 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee on 71st in the left eastbound lane. The defendant, who was also driving eastbound on 71st, was in the far right lane. At that time the defendant, who was driving a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am, attempted an illegal left turn from the far right lane, striking our client’s vehicle.
The plaintiff’s car was knocked off the road, sideswiping a pole, and then came to a rest on some railroad tracks next to the street.
The accident was witnessed by Chicago police officers. They then prepared police report and issued the defendant a citation for an improper left turn.
Shortly after the collision our client started experiencing headaches, and neck and back pain. She was seen after the accident at St. Bernard Hospital.
Over the days following the accident, the plaintiffs pain did not resolve. She has since started medical treatment with her primary physician.
