The Dinizulu Law Group represented Michael Hassan, a Lewis University college student, who was a passenger at the time of the trucking crash. Our client was a passenger in a vehicle that was attempting to make a left hand turn in an intersection from Route 53 onto University Parkway in Romeoville, Illinois. While making a left hand turn, a semi-trailer tractor ran a red light, crashing into the vehicle our client was in, and three other cars. The crash resulted in our client being placed in a medically induced coma, and suffering from brain damage and serious internal injuries.
The semi truck driver was identified as Sherrard McKnight from North Carolina who was working for Interstate Trucking Company Moonlight Logistics at the time of the crash. It was alleged that the semi-truck driver was under the influence at the time of the trucking crash. McKnight has a previous arrest record of robbery and assault.
The Plaintiff received a $100,000 partial policy as a settlement; in addition, a more significant tortfeasor defendant is pending.
