Where your injury case is all that matters

Semi and car collide in Illinois, leading to critical injuries

A serious accident took place on Illinois' Route 15, and the driver of a semi-truck had to be airlifted from the scene with critical injuries. The accident happened on a Wednesday morning, and reports show that it took place at about 8:30. The road had to be shut down in both directions for about two hours after the incident. This all took place close to St. Libory.

The police have said that a woman who was involved in the accident was behind the wheel of a Chevy Malibu, a mid-sized sedan. She was traveling down Veney Road. She attempted to make a westward turn so that she could get onto Route 15, but she was not successful. Instead, she smashed her Malibu into the front end of the semi-truck.

The man driving the semi is 58 years old. He was seriously injured in the accident, and the helicopter took him to an unspecified hospital in the St. Louis area.

The woman driving the car was also injured in the crash, and she had to be taken to a hospital in Belleville. The exact nature of her injuries or the extent of them was not reported.

Police are still carrying out an investigation into the specifics of the crash.

Despite their larger size, semi-trucks can suffer serious damage in truck accidents with smaller cars, and the drivers can be quite badly injured. Anyone who has been injured like this may have high medical expenses, and they should know if they have a right to seek compensation from the other driver in their case.

    Mark [Mathys] is very professional. He responds almost immediately, via email, to any question, comment or concern I have and if he is not able to respond right away, he will let me know. I have been very satisfied with Mark so far and I am happy to be his client.

  4. "Easy to talk to"

    Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid were very professional and easy to talk to. Prior to working with them, my wife and I had no real experience with the legal system beyond a house closing, yet Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid explained the whole process to us very well. I knew that whenever I had a concern about our case or the legal system in general I could call their office or send an email and receive answers the same day... -Larry

  5. "Provided very wise advice"

    I've dealt with attorneys on a variety of issues, almost all of them since leaving college and entering the workplace. Mr. Mathys was the first attorney I had any real experience with, and I was impressed then and remain so. He provided very wise advice and always kept me informed. In the end, he delivered a favorable result. I recommend him highly.

    Mark [Schneid] is an excellent and skilled attorney and demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the law when he helped settle my dog bite lawsuit resulting from a traumatic incident. He explained what was needed of me and how I should handle the situation in a professional manner.

  7. "They went to bat for me"

    Not long ago I was involved in a car accident where I was hit by a gravel truck at an intersection. After I called Mathys & Schneid, even though I didn't have a very large case, they made me feel like I was one of their most important cases. They went to bat for me with the trucking company's insurance and got me a settlement. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. -Dan H.
