Corboy & Demetrio filed two suits Monday morning emerging out of the situation on Sat. Afternoon in which a Town of Chicago van driver ran down several pedestrians on the sidewalk at the corner of Rush Street and Cedar Street in Chicago’s Gold Coast. The lawsuits press release distributors filed against the City of Chicago and its employee Dwight Washington were filed on behalf of a 20-month-old babe, Tyler Jones, and her 25-year-old carer, Jennifer Anton, who was pushing the young girl in a stroller. Thomas A. Demetrio stated, “The firm sought and obtained an emergency order of protection, which was entered by Circuit Court of Cook County Judge Michael Panter, requiring the Town to save the truck, its contents, Dwight Washington’s staff file, and any surveillance videotape so the firm and pros retained by the firm can check them.” Demetrio added the reason his firm moved swiftly for court protection is that, based on its experience, proof sometimes gets lost or altered. . “Any time a driver is negligent and somebody is severely injured, it is tragic,” claimed Corboy & Demetrio partner, Dan Kotin.

“But when you add the eyewitness accounts of the driver’s clear inebriated condition and the criminal charges brought against him, the conduct becomes reprehensible and can certainly create a great deal of outrage.” . The lawsuits also include counts against the Town of Chicago for negligent supervision of its worker. “There had been an inebriated City worker driving a Town lorry in acrowded neighborhood. In addition, based on eyewitness accounts, the City truck was traveling at a unrestrained rate of speed. Somebody with the City of Chicago should have prevented this,” claimed Kotin.

Demetrio mentioned “Jennifer Anton suffered multiple grim splinters to her pelvis, hips, and legs, as well as dreadful degloving wounds to her legs. She has undergone surgery, and her condition remains serious.” . Demetrio also said that, “Thankfully, little Tyler’s injuries are even less severe. She has been discharged from Children’s Commemorative Hospice, but is following up with orthopedic surgeons with regard to a possible leg fracture.” . According to Kotin, “Witness accounts indicate that Jen Anton was a true hero.
