On March 27, 2012, Tim Cavanagh and Matt Rundio of Cavanagh Law Group filed a wrongful death lawsuit for the family of Susana Pintor. On March 23, 2012, Susana was a passenger in the back seat of a vehicle driven by Mario Mandujano. Mandujano's vehicle was allegedly hit by another car and then crashed into a pole near the 4900 block of South Pulaski Road. Susana was killed in the crash and three other people in the car sustained serious injuries.
The lawsuit, filed in Cook County Circuit Court, accuses Mandujano of failing to maintain proper control of his vehicle, proceeding at a speed which was greater than reasonable and proper, and operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol. Susana Pintor leaves behind a 2 year-old daughter, Arianna Torres. The case is entitled Susana Guajardo, Guardian and Next Friend of Arianna Torres, a minor, as Special Administrator of the Estate of Susana Pintor, deceased v. Mario Mandujano, case number 2012 L 003283. The case is pending before Judge Diane J. Larsen. For media coverage of the crash, please click on the following links:
