Attorney suffers fatal injuries when driver fails to heed stop sign 

Richard Berry, 57, was traveling northbound on a rural two-lane highway. Roe, who was delivering medical supplies for his employer, was driving east on another roadway. The two vehicles collided at an intersection.

Berry suffered fatal injuries. He had been an attorney earning about $200,000 annually and is survived by his wife and three adult children.

Berry’s wife, on behalf of his estate, sued Roe’s employer, alleging Roe had failed to heed a stop sign.

The parties settled before trial for $5 million.

Citation: Berry v. Doe, No. 2010 L 14 (Ill., LaSalle Co. Cir. Feb. 22, 2011).

Plaintiff counsel: AAJ members Robert J. Bingle and Thomas A. Demetrio, both of Chicago.
