Truck Accident Lawyer

Accidents that involve tractor-trailers, semis, 18-wheelers and commercial trucks or vehicles only make up a fraction of the accidents on Illinois roads, but when they do occur, the injuries that result often carry greater consequences for the victims. Size and weight alone play a major role in the severity of the accident.

Determining Fault And Pursuing Compensation From Every Angle

If you have been injured in a trucking accident, it is important to discuss your options with an experienced truck accident lawyer. Personal injury claims in these cases are far more complex than the average auto accident. Claims of negligence may be filed against:

  • The driver whose errors or wrongdoing on the road caused the accident
  • The company that employs the driver and is responsible for training and adherence to safety regulations
  • The owner of the vehicle
  • The company that leased the vehicle
  • The vehicle manufacturer responsible for product defects or malfunction
  • The shipping company responsible for loading or securing freight
  • The individual or business responsible for maintaining, inspecting and repairing the truck

Because many of these cases involve multiple parties, you may face obstacles in pinning down fault, ultimately affecting your ability to recover maximum compensation when you need it.
