Last Thursday, January 3, 2008 in the southwestern suburbs of Chicago three people were injured when a semi truck lost control and rolled over shortly after it entered the Southbound lanes of the Stevenson Expressway (I-55) at LaGrange Road. The Cook County truck crash took place just after noon and blocked all South lanes of the highway. By 2:00 pm all but one lane had been re-opened. The three people injured in the motor vehicle accident were taken to Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital by ambulance.
David Abels & Associates, P.C. has been retained by one of the injured to pursue a negligence claim against the truck driver and truck owner. She sustained back and neck injuries and is seeing a Chicago doctor. She was driving in the far left lane and her vehicle was struck by a Ford Taurus that had been forced into her lane by the semi truck. The truck driver reportedly was not sure was caused him to lose control of the vehicle and thought that he may have hit a patch of black ice.
