Woman files lawsuit after 2013 Illinois crash

According to court documents, a woman filed a civil lawsuit alleging she received injuries in an accident that occurred on Feb. 28, 2013. The complaint was filed in Madison County Circuit Court on Dec. 19, 2014.

According to the allegations contained in the complaint, the woman stated she was driving her 2008 Ford pickup truck west on Route 3 in Alton. She alleges that as she drove through the Broadway intersection, a man driving east on Landmark Boulevard ran a stoplight and struck her truck.

She is suing for more than $150,000 in addition to court costs. The woman indicates the injuries she received as a result of the accident are permanently disabling. She is seeking compensation for her medical expenses, property losses, and pain and suffering. Her lawsuit alleges that the man failed to look out for other traffic, obey a traffic control device and properly control his vehicle. The lawsuit also claims that the man was driving too fast at the time.

The woman’s lawsuit demonstrates the significant expenses and losses people may incur when they are the victims of an automobile accident. When people are involved in a serious crash, their injuries may permanently alter their quality of life, and they may require ongoing rehabilitative care.

By filing a personal injury lawsuit against a driver whose negligence caused the accident, a victim could recover damages to financially compensate them for the losses they suffered as a result. An attorney may review a person’s individual case, including the police reports and medical records, to identify all grounds for the civil complaint.
