Lawsuit Filed Against Construction Company After Truck Collision Results In Career-Ending Injury

May 11, 2015

Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C., filed suit against a construction company and its employees today in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois. The action arose out of an injury that occurred when a large box truck struck a pickup truck in a local scrap yard. The collision threw down a roofer working in the bed of the pickup truck, and also injured his wife who was sitting in the cab. The roofer suffered career-ending injuries as a result of the accident. The lawsuit alleges that the driver of the large truck negligently failed to keep a proper lookout as he maneuvered his large box truck in reverse through the scrap yard, striking the roofer's pickup truck.
