This case takes place in Illinois and involves a male Plaintiff who suffered serious and permanent injuries after an accident in the parking lot of a large shopping mall. The man had left the store with his purchases and was pushing a cart towards his car when a vehicle crashed into him in a crosswalk. The man was carried on the hood of the vehicle for several meters before the car crashed into a large sign, pinning him between the front of the vehicle and the sign. It is alleged that the parking lot lacked important safety features that could have prevented this incident, such as speed bumps and appropriate signage. The Plaintiff has suffered significant and permanent injuries, including paralysis below the waist, and will require a lifetime of ongoing care.
