$87,000 – Our client was northbound on IL-39 in Rockford, Illinois, and as she approached a construction site, she slowed and merged with other traffic, as did the semi behind her.

Settled. Our client was northbound on IL-39 in Rockford, Illinois, and as she approached a construction site, she slowed and merged with other traffic, as did the semi behind her. Traffic then came to a stop. Two vehicles behind our client was another semi that did not stop and crashed into the rear end of the semi in front of him at full speed, which caused that semi in turn to slam directly into my client’s car. Our 28-year-old client suffered a compression fracture at T12 and a herniated disc at L5-S1. She was forced to undergo several different types of treatment, ranging from consults with a neurosurgeon to chiropractic care. Hartford.
