A Chicago area brick layer settled his Cook County personal injury case with a semi-truck driver after his vehicle was struck by the defendant. It was alleged that the Cook County trucking accident occurred when defendant improperly took a left turn in front of the plaintiff’s vehicle when the defendant truck driver’s vision was obscured by the weather conditions and the way the roadway curved.
The plaintiff suffered an acetabular fracture in the Cook County truck accident. The acetabulum is the socket part of the pelvic bone that connects the femur to the rest of the pelvis.
Recovery of such an injury can be long and difficult. Patients are often required to keep weight off their hip for up to three months. Long-term effects are also not uncommon. Patients commonly suffer from hip arthritis, and even need hip replacements later in their lives.
The plaintiff is now disabled and unable to return to his usual work. The Chicago trucking accident case was settled on the plaintiff’s behalf for $2 million.
