Substantial Recovery for Jogger Struck by SUV Driven by Teen
The legal team at Lane & Lane secured a $2 million recovery on behalf of a jogger who was struck by a SUV.
Woman Was Dragged Under the SUV
The accident happened when our client, a 23-year-old woman, was jogging in a residential area in DuPage County. A teenage boy lost control of his SUV and struck her, dragging her under the vehicle and into a neighbor’s yard. She was seriously hurt, with neck injuries, nerve damage, a fractured pelvis, and third-degree burns on her leg, arm, and abdomen from contact with the SUV’s exhaust system.
As this case shows, a pedestrian is completely unprotected against impact with a car or truck, and the resulting injuries can be serious—even fatal.
