A man's estate is suing over a bus accident in Mexico that allegedly caused him great injuries before death.

Maria Del Carmen Avira, as administrator of the estate of Francisco Hernandez, filed a complaint on July 28 in Cook County Circuit Court against Autobuses Latinos Inc., Gardunio Management LLC and Transportes Leasing Co. LLC.

On Dec. 25, 2013, Hernandez was a passenger in a bus operated by a Autobuses Latinos Inc. employee, heading south on Miguel Ramos Arizpe Blvd., just north of Saltillo in Mexico. The driver of the bus, the lawsuit states, Navarro Garcia, then left the road and crashed, causing serious and permanent injuries to Hernandez that also contributed to his loss of a normal life, pain and suffering, and medical expenses until his death.

The plaintiff seeks damages of more than $300,000, plus costs. The plaintiff is represented by Daniel H. Streckert of Goldberg, Weisman and Cairo of Chicago.

Cook County Circuit Court case number 2015L007653.
