A couple has filed a personal injury suit against a trucking company and one of its employees, claiming that a tractor-trailer rear-ended their vehicle, causing them to sustain personal injuries.
According to the suit they filed on January 9 in Illinois’ St. Clair County Circuit Court, Nancy Glander was eastbound near Rock Springs, Wyoming in an 18-wheeled tractor-trailer with her husband, Gary Glander, as her passenger when the collision took place.
Another 18-wheeled tractor-trailer driven by Dariusz Rosol, who was employed by KLC Global Services when the collision occurred, was behind the one driven by Glander when it collided with the rear of Glander’s truck, according to the suit.
The Glanders claim that the collision caused them to sustain serious and permanent personal injuries and great pain and suffering and they will no longer be able to attend to their usual affairs. They also claim to have lost enjoyment of a normal life and incurred substantial medical expenses.
Gary Glander also claims the loss of love, companionship, consortium, and society of Nancy Glander.
The suit alleges negligence on the part of Rosol for failure to maintain proper control of his vehicle, failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, failure to maintain a proper lookout, and driving too fast. The suit alleges that KLC Global was negligent through Rosol.
The Glanders seek damages in excess of $450,000, plus costs, from the six-count suit.
