Clinton Couple Hurt in Illinois Car Crash Files Personal Injury Lawsuit Against Driver

In Illinois, John B. Roach and Louis M. Roach are suing Lauren D. Lewis for personal injuries they say they sustained on US Highway 50 on November 1, 2007. Their four-count car accident lawsuit is seeking over $200,000 plus other costs and relief.

According to their Illinois car crash complaint, Lewis was trying to swerve around another auto that was making a left turn when she hit Rhody R. Campbell’s vehicle. This caused Campbell’s auto to strike another car. The Roaches were riding in Campbell's vehicle when the traffic collision happened.

The couple says their injuries include head, shoulder, and neck injuries, a traumatic brain injury, multiple facial and body structure injuries, fractured vertebrae, multiple bruises, a spinal sprain, and ongoing knee and rib pain. John Roach also says that his post-concussion symptoms have led to memory loss, decreased vision, tingling, numbness, and problems concentrating.

The plaintiffs are each claiming loss of consortium, society, companionship, affection, love, and. They are accusing Lewis of failing to maintain a proper look out, disregarding the safety of others while driving, driving too fast, neglecting to properly use the brakes, not keeping her car under control, neglecting to exercise due care, failing to swerve or stop to avoid a crash, and failing to yield the right of way. The Roaches say they incurred medical bills and lost wages because of their personal injuries.
