Illinois woman injured in crash near state police headquarters

Illinois woman injured in crash near state police headquarters

Date: August 21, 2013

A woman was injured in a crash that occurred on U.S. 54 on Aug. 16, 2013. A 19-year-old man reportedly rear-ended her when he had reached down to pick up his cell phone that he dropped in his car. The man’s vehicle sustained major damage, while the woman’s vehicle only had minor damage.

However, even though the woman’s vehicle was unharmed, she had to be taken to Illini Community Hospital in Pittsfield. The 19-year-old man was uninjured in the car accident. The man was, however, cited with failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.

The woman who was injured in the crash could decide to file a personal injury lawsuit against the 19-year-old man to attempt to seek compensation for her injuries. If won, a personal injury lawsuit could potentially allow her to receive reimbursement for her hospital bills, medical expenses and wages that she lost due to time missed from work. She could also attempt to claim compensation for pain, suffering and other punitive damages. Her claim could allege that if the man wasn’t acting negligently by taking his eyes off the road to search for his cell phone on the floor of his car, he wouldn’t have rear-ended her, causing her to become injured.

Personal injury lawyers might be able to help people who want to seek compensation for their injuries prepare the statements for their claims. They might also be able to help them assess if they even have the grounds to file a claim and gather any necessary evidence in order to validate their claims. Most personal injury lawsuits are settled outside of court, and lawyers might be able to help people negotiate settlements for their claims in a timely manner.
