Chicago man wins $20 million settlement for tow truck eye injury

On June 28, 2017, a Chicago jury awarded a tow truck driver $20 million for the loss of his eye due to a manufacturer's defect on his work vehicle. The man had argued that the maker of his 1997 tow truck had failed to equip it with a way to secure its hood in the upright position, a feature that he contended would have ultimately protected him from injury.The man had been driving in the southwest Chicago suburb of Summit on January 23, 2012, when his 1997 tow truck, a Kenworth T-800, began choking on a bitterly cold day. It was as he neared the intersection between 60th Street and Harlem Avenue that he pulled it over on the side of the road.As he raised the hood of the truck in an attempt to diagnose what had gone wrong, a strong gust of wind blew by, causing it to slam shut on his face. When the man saw doctors soon thereafter, he discovered he had not only suffered a number of fractures to his face, but that his right eye had been so severely damaged it would need to be fully removed.At the time of the man's accident, the tow truck's manufacturer, PACCAR, Inc., had not yet begun equipping its fleet with an arm to stabilize the hood while it was open. They argue that this design flaw contributed to the man's injury and justified PACCAR, Inc. in being held accountable for his injuries.

How to file an injury case against the city of Chicago

When it comes to injuries suffered on its property, the city of Chicago is subject to the Immunity Act, a law that specifies that neither the government itself nor any one of its employees can be sued while carrying out everyday tasks related to their jobs. At the same time, government entities are responsible for ensuring that their actions are not seen as being either unreasonable or negligent as well.

Nursing home sued after woman falls while visiting mom

A woman, who alleges she was injured in a slip and fall while visiting her mother at the Glen Elston Nursing and Rehab Center in Chicago on June 27, 2015, has filed a lawsuit against the assisted living facility. The lawsuit that was filed with the clerk of courts on March 9, 2017 seeks damages for the injuries she alleges she suffered as a result of a slip and fall on the facility's premises.

Why slips and falls occur and how to avoid them

While fatal car accidents account for the largest percentage of all accidental deaths, trips, slips and falls come in at a not-too-distant second at 15 percent. Among the three, they are not only different in terms of how they occur, but as far as how each can be prevented as well.
