Truck Lawsuit Filed After High School Student Paralyzed

The Chippewa Herald reported earlier this week on a new truck crash lawsuit filed against a Chicago truck driver and the trucking company involved in the accident, Gertsen Interstate Systems, Inc.

Earlier this year, a car was being driver to a Marine base by a Marine Corp member with his wife, sister, and infant son in the car. Around 2 p.m. in the afternoon, the car was on Interstate 94 when it collided with a semi truck near mile marker 94. The crash was intense, with extreme physical damage and injury to all those involved.

The driver required surgery on one of his legs, but was eventually able to return to his base. His wife suffered a brain injury. The infant child was struck with life-threatening injuries but luckily survived. The driver’s sister also suffered damaging injuries that eventually left her paralyzed.

The lawsuit seeks compensation for the catastrophic injuries suffered by the paralyzed young girl. Those injuries include past and future medical bills, her on-going life care needs, loss of life enjoyment, psychological trauma, and permanent disability.
