CHICAGO — A deceased man's family is suing Pasquale Trucking Company Inc. and a driver, alleging negligence in a fatal collision.
Christy K. Ray, as special administrator of the estate of her husband, David A. Ray, filed a complaint on Sept. 23 in Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants alleging that David C. Hlebasko failed to properly control a tractor-trailer owned by Pasquale.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on July 25, David A. Ray suffered fatal injuries in a collision on Interstate 55. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because Pasquale employee Hlebasko allegedly failed to timely apply his brakes or to keep a proper lookout.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000. She is represented by Kevin P. Durkin and Tracy A. Brammeier of Clifford Law Offices in Chicago.
