Jury Awards over $23 Million to Victims of Tractor Trailer Accident

A jury in Will County, IL recently awarded the victims of a trucking accident more than $23 million. The victims of the accident brought the lawsuit against the driver of a truck hauling potatoes and the trucking company.

The accident, which occurred in Joliet, IL, was caused when the defendant driver’s tractor trailer collided with the first victim’s car as it slowed for an unrelated accident. This caused a chain-reaction crash involving two more tractor trailer trucks and three cares. The truck accident left two people dead and five others injured. According to the report, the truck driver was cited for false entries in her log book and driving with a suspended driver’s license.
