Truck Accidents

Kane County Truck Accident Attorneys

Dedicated Semi-Truck Accident Lawyers in Aurora, Naperville, and Oswego

Truck accidents are some of the most deadly incidents that occur on Illinois roadways. When semis or large trucks collide with other vehicles, serious injuries and fatalities are almost inevitable. In addition to the human devastation, accidents involving trucks create complex legal cases because of the technicalities and multiple parties involved. If you or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident, it is important to obtain experienced and strong legal representation early on. Investigations must be conducted, and evidence must be preserved. These steps are vital to a successful outcome.

We proudly continue a tradition of aggressive and creative advocacy on behalf of trucking victims throughout Chicago and the state of Illinois. Our success in personal injury and wrongful death claims is reflected in the many multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements we have obtained on behalf of the brave and damaged people it has been our privilege to represent.

What Causes Trucking Accidents?

It is important to legally determine the cause of a truck accident in order to establish fault and to identify the responsible parties. In addition to the driver, the employer, vehicle owner, leasing company, repair shop, or manufacturer may be liable. The trucking industry is required to follow rules and regulations in order to ensure roadway safety for everyone. The failure to follow these rules and other common sense safety practices often results in tragedy. Some of the common causes of trucking accidents include:

  • Speeding or Aggressive Driving
  • Driver Fatigue
  • Texting/Phone Use
  • Driving While Intoxicated
  • Overloaded Trucks
  • Poorly Maintained Trucks
  • Inattentive/Distracted Driving
  • Defective Parts

When a truck accident occurs, immediate action is required to discover facts and preserve evidence. There is no substitute for an investigation by experienced and knowledgeable lawyers and the experts they retain. Trucking companies have lawyers like that working for them. You need them working for you as well. The experience needed, however, is trial experience rather than just settlement experience. Any lawyer can settle cases, and the internet and yellow pages are filled with thousands of them. But full and fair settlements are paid by trucking companies only when your lawyer is willing and able to try the case to verdict. It is only the credible threat of trial that makes true justice possible.
