A man has filed suit on behalf of himself and his two minor children for the personal injuries they suffered in a head-on collision.
According to the suit Daniel Duff filed on May 10 in Illinois’ Madison County Circuit Court on May 10, his then 15-year-old son Tyler Duff was driving west on U.S. 40 with his father and brother, Ashton Duff, as passengers on June 13, 2008, when defendant Tammy Bloebaum, who was eastbound on U.S. 40 at the time, veered into the westbound lane and collided with their vehicle head-on shortly after 5:30 p.m.
Daniel Duff claims the collision caused him to suffer injuries to his neck, back, shoulders, chest, wrist, ribs, and left knee and a loss of income and incur medical expenses. He claims Tyler Duff suffered injuries to his left arm and wrist and Ashton Duff suffered injuries to his neck, head, and face. He claims all three experienced great pain and mental anguish and have been unable to attend to their normal life duties.
The suit alleges negligence on the part of Bloebaum for failure to maintain a proper lookout, failure to see things that were clearly visible, failure to maintain proper control of her vehicle, failure to keep her vehicle on the proper side of the road, and failure to use every precaution to avoid a collision.
Daniel Duff seeks damages in excess of $200,000, plus costs, from the four-count suit.
