Chicago Area auto accident lawyers from Abels & Annes, P.C. have reached a settlement related to a March 25, 2008 crash that occurred in Oak Park, Illinois. Our client was southbound on Austin Blvd., just south of Austin’s intersection with Madison St. when another driver attempted to make a left turn into driveway without checking for southbound traffic or waiting for southbound traffic to clear. The defendant hit our client as he made the left turn. The at fault driver was ticketed for failing to yield the right-of-way to an oncoming vehicle when he made his left turn, in violation of 625 ILCS 5/11-902.
The plaintiff, a Chicago resident, sustained injuries to his neck, back, shoulders, head and leg. He was seen in the Emergency Room at Rush Oak Park Hospital on the date of the accident. He later sought follow up treatment with a neurologist and a chiropractic physician in Chicago.
The Oak Park car accident case settled for $13,000. AAA insurance is paying on the claim.
