A wrongful death lawsuit has been filed in Kane County, Illinois by Levin & Perconti’s John J. Perconti. The lawsuit has been filed on behalf of a woman who was killed last fall in a serious trucking accident. The 32-year-old woman, along with her husband and 3-year-old son, were struck by a truck, causing their car to crash into the Illinois Department of Transportation dump truck in front of them. The woman’s husband and son were both seriously injured in the car crash. Allegedly, half of the brakes on the semitrailer that crashed into the family were not properly functioning and the truck driver had marijuana in his system. The personal injury lawsuit has been filed, but although the death was ruled a homicide, criminal charges have yet to be made.
