Kane County Lawsuit Regarding Vehicle Collision

Lawsuit Involving Municipal Ambulance

Accidents involving municipal vehicles, such as police cars, ambulances, fire trucks, city vehicles, etc. can present challenges in determining liability and getting accident injury compensation.

A recent article discussed a lawsuit involving a Kane County collision involving an ambulance responding to a call and another vehicle.  The article is seen in the December 27, 2015 Daily Herald article titled “Judge dismisses lawsuit over Geneva ambulance crash.”

Notable excerpts from the article include:

A Kane County judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a man seeking damages for injuries sustained in 2011 when he was rear-ended by a Geneva ambulance responding to a call.

also:

Attorneys for the city successfully argued the city and Baum are protected under state law and “are immune from injuries caused by the negligent operation of a motor vehicle when responding to an emergency call,” according to court documents.

According to the article, the underlying accident happened at Kirk Road and State Street, and the roadway may have been covered in black ice.  As those familiar with black ice know, black ice often creates extremely hazardous driving conditions where loss of vehicle control can occur.
