CHICAGO, Aug. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Stephan Blandin, a principal in the
law firm of Romanucci & Blandin, LLC, based here, today filed a lawsuit in
the circuit court of DeKalb County (Hessler v. Busca, et al., case number
07 L 62) against the NAPA company on behalf of a man who was injured when a
monster truck performing stunts in DeKalb, Ill., on August 9 plowed into a
crowd of spectators. A total of nine people were injured.
Gregory Hessler, 45, of Aurora, a general manager for a local business
located near the street where the truck was performing, was a bystander
when the truck lost control as it was attempting to drive over and crush
four cars. After plowing through the crowd, the truck went through a fence
and stopped on railroad tracks.
Hessler was treated in the emergency room of a DeKalb Hospital for
injuries sustained to his leg. He is still undergoing medical treatment and
has not returned to work.
"We believe this accident will show a willful and wonton neglect by the
NAPA dealership, its parent company, the driver of the truck and his
company," said Blandin.
