Man attacks hospital staff, troopers after crash

After a crash, the person who is responsible for hurting or killing others is held liable through their insurance. Not all of these types of incidents will have criminal charges filed. Even if there is not a criminal case, it's still possible to file a civil lawsuit against the other party.

That's good for people who are hurt or who lose loved ones in collisions or as a result of a driver's actions. For example, there was a case from Dec. 30 reflecting on the crash involving a man who became violent at a local hospital. The man, 37, was taken to St. Mary's Hospital, and it's believed that he was intoxicated when he caused the crash.

At the hospital, he became irate after he was told there was a warrant out for his arrest. He threatened the medical staff and two troopers at the scene. He spit at a nurse who was treating him as well. It's claimed he also attempted to bite an officer once he was cleared to take the man to Lake County Jail.

While no one was hurt in the crash, the same wasn't true at the hospital. As a result, the man has been charged for battery with bodily waste for attacking the nurse, and he has also been charged for disorderly conduct, intimidation and other crimes.

In cases like this, it's easy to see that some people should not be on the roads. If you're hurt by them on the road or when you come into contact with them elsewhere, make sure you know your right to compensation.

John J. Hopkins: From Working Iron To
Representing Those Who Work

ALTON —Like any successful trial lawyer, John Hopkins knows the importance of preparation. But he usually doesn’t write out the questions he plans to ask witnesses in depositions or in court.

View Article “I like to react to what the witness is saying—not only what they’re saying, but how they’re saying it,” Hopkins says.
