Truck Accidents

Truck Accidents

Trucking accidents routinely result in a catastrophic injury for the victims due to the pure size and weight of a trailer. Anyone who has been hit by a negligent truck driver or who was injured due to a negligent trucking company has every right to file a claim and fight for fair compensation. We are here to fight for you.

Causes Of Commercial Trucking Crashes:

It is an undeniable fact that most truck collisions are preventable and drivers are often not the sole party responsible for an accident. Determining whom to hold liable and seek compensation from can be one of the most frustrating and confusing aspects of your case, which is why it is important to determine the exact cause and any contributing factors. Common causes include the following:

  • Driver fatigue or distraction
  • Violation of traffic laws
  • Drug and alcohol abuse
  • Poor maintenance history
  • Manufacturing defects
  • Violation of safety regulations and hours of service limitations

“We have the experience, the compassion that’s necessary, and we get results.”

Your Challenges Following A Chicago Truck Accident

While you are being rushed to the hospital for the treatment of your injuries after an accident with a truck, the driver’s employer is contacting its legal team in preparation for your claim. You need to focus on taking care of your injuries rather than worrying about where you are going to find the money to pay for your medical bills. However, the parties that are responsible are often two steps ahead in manufacturing a way to avoid responsibility. This reality can be infuriating and leave you confused as to how to proceed with your claim so that you aren’t left in a financial hole.

You may also be dealing with a lot of pain and need to be able to focus on your rehabilitation— rather than talking to insurance companies that are only trying to find ways to fool you into giving up your rights. Having an attorney representing your needs and interests will allow you to focus on what truly matters— getting better.

FAQs 

ACCIDENTS HURT, EXPERIENCED ATTORNEYS CAN HELP.

Do I need a lawyer?

When it comes to making this decision we ask our clients to keep in mind that defendants frequently have teams of attorneys on staff prepared to find ways to pay out as little as possible on every claim. So why not hire a team of accomplished attorneys who focus on personal injury litigation to level the playing field for you?

What is the first step I should take if I am injured?

k the medical attention that you need. The most important thing is taking care of your injury. Forget about the case, medical care trumps everything.

What is negligence?

Negligence is a large factor of a personal injury case. This involves someone who is careless or reckless and causes harm to another person. No one ever asks to be injured, but when one person’s negligence has significantly impacted another person’s life we are here to care about, defend and protect you. Proving negligence in a personal injury case is essential to helping our clients obtain the compensation that they deserve.

Should I accept an offer from the insurance company?

It is common for an insurance company to offer a settlement after an accident occurs. To some, the settlement may seem like a good offer but you need to understand why it is not. These insurance companies make money by offering you the least amount of compensation possible. Your case is most likely worth a lot more than what the insurance company will offer you. It is highly recommended that you never accept an offer from an insurance company without speaking to an attorney first. We can provide you with better care and compensation than any insurance company can offer.
