Illinois Car Accident Lawsuits: Two Women File St. Clair County Circuit Personal Injury Complaints

A woman who says the baby she was carrying died when she was involved in an Illinois car accident is suing the driver of the other car for personal injury. Jamie Heusohn filed her complaint in St. Clair County Circuit Court on her behalf and as the mother of baby Heusohn. The defendant of her Illinois personal injury complaint is Arthur Coplen.

According to Jamie, Coplen struck the vehicle she was driving on May 2, 2007 as he tried to make a U-turn out of a private residence. Her car ended up in a ditch. As a result of her injuries, Jamie says that the baby she was carrying died. She also sustained injuries to her wrist, stomach, and nerves and her car was totaled.

Her complaint accuses Coplen of trying to make a U-turn onto a highway and failing to yield the right-of-way. Jamie says the loss of her baby and her own injuries resulted in medical expenses, loss of enjoyment, pain and suffering, expenses from the damages to her vehicle, and lost earning capacity. She is seeking over $60,000 in damages.

In another Illinois car accident lawsuit, filed in St. Clair County Circuit Court, Fershon Lockett is suing Patricia Takmajian for personal injuries. Locket says that Takmajian “violently struck” her car on May 22, 2007.

Lockett claims that she sustained serious injuries to her knees, neck, back, & body and, as a result, she accrued hospital expenses, could not tend to her usual tasks, and experienced anguish and pain. Her Illinois personal injury lawsuit accuses Takmajian of failing to observe her, failing to keep a proper lookout, failing to step on the brakes, failing to slow down her speed so that the accident wouldn’t happen, neglecting to give proper warning, failing to turn so she wouldn’t hit the plaintiff, and driving too closely to Lockett's vehicle. Lockett is seeking more than $50,000 plus costs.
