Here are some truck accident cases from Illinois for fractures/broken bones and their settlements:
- 2014, Cook County – In downtown Chicago, a sanitation truck mounted the curb and drove onto the sidewalk, directly toward a group of people. The truck struck one young woman, who suffered broken bones in her hips, legs, and pelvis. It was determined that the truck driver was intoxicated at the time and the case was settled out-of-court for $7.4 million in favor of the plaintiff.
- 2009, Cook County – A man attempted to jump onto the bed of a pickup truck, and the driver began moving the vehicle forward before the first man was onboard; the short fall fractured his tibia bone. The case for negligence went to trial, as each man accused the other of being intoxicated, and the first man was awarded $250,000 in damages by the jury.
- 2009, Cook County – A man was rear-ended with considerable force by a tractor-trailer, resulting in multiple broken bones and herniated discs as well as a kidney-laceration; he sued both the driver and trucking company for negligence. While the defendants denied all responsibility for the accident, the case went to trial and a jury awarded the plaintiff about $121,000 for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
