Chicago injury attorneys for an Illinois man injured by falling ice are seeking more information about the accident. Their client, Peter Morano, sustained serious injuries to one side of his face when his windshield was shattered by a sheet of ice which fell from the roof of a semi truck. The injured party does not have full vision in his left eye in spite of emergency surgery to attempt to repair the damage. Most likely several more surgeries will be necessary to repair his face and try to restore vision to his eye.

Currently, there is very little information available on the truck and its driver. The driver may be unaware that his or her vehicle caused the ice accident. Mr. Morano’s Chicago injury attorneys have filed a discovery motion and are actively seeking leads and witnesses to the ice accident.

While the injured party will most likely seek compensation for his injuries, pain and suffering, that is not all he hopes to acheive by possibly filing a lawsuit. It is important to Mr. Morano that other drivers do not suffer from preventable ice accidents such as this one. He is hoping this incident will raise awareness about ice accidents. There are currently only four states who have laws in place to prevent ice accidents. New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey currently require truck drivers to clear off their vehicles before driving to avoid ice accidents such as this one.

Winter can be a hazardous time due to unsafe driving conditions which are unavoidable. However, ice accidents such as this are completely avoidable if motorists would take a little extra time to clean off their vehicles before operating them – semi truck drivers and passenger vehicle drivers alike.
