'Servicemen's Cases Can, At Times, March Forward" is the title of an article available free from Clifford Law Offices. The Chicago law office is posting legal articles on their website, Personal Injury Attorneys, to educate the public about legal matters.
Here is an introduction, with a link to the full article below:
"A 65-year-old grandmother was driving on a Chicago tollway when a man test driving a fast new sports car lost control and rear-ended her at a tollbooth. The impact left the once healthy woman a paraplegic.
The defendant driver was a member of the U.S. Marines, awaiting dispatch to Iraq for months at a time to defend his country in a time of war.
It is a different battle for the elderly plaintiff. Instead of enjoying her golden years, she is faced with numerous surgeries, painful rehabilitation and their incumbent medical bills. She filed a personal injury lawsuit to collect the damages she suffered. But a law prevents the aging woman from proceeding, even though the serviceman is insured by a property casualty insurer and liability is not in dispute."
Robert Clifford, Chicago personal injury attorney, examines the law regarding the liability of active servicemen both in Illinois and around the country when they're sued in a civil action. "This article is intended to help educate the public about legal issues", said Robert Clifford.
