CHICAGO — An estate administrator is suing Global X-press LLC, Atlas Tube (Chicago) LLC, Freight Logistics Inc., Great Plains Logistics Inc. and driver Marcial Napoles, alleging the defendant companies' trucker is responsible for a fatal crash.
Eva Barnett, as independent administrator of the estate of Victor Amy, filed a complaint on May 1 in Cook County Circuit Court against the defendants alleging Napoles failed to properly control his vehicle.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that, on May 1, 2015, Amy sustained serious physical trauma as the result of a car crash and was pronounced dead later at Trinity Hospital. The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because Napoles allegedly failed to keep a proper lookout while operating his vehicle.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000. She is represented by Michael F. Bonamarte and Andrew J. Thut of Levin & Perconti in Chicago.
