Chicago Truck Accident Attorneys
Tractor-trailers, auto transporters, delivery vans, and buses are just some of the trucks we see alongside our cars on Chicago’s streets and Illinois’ highways and toll roads. When their drivers, operators, and owners act negligently, those trucks become dangerous weapons capable of causing catastrophic injury, property damage, and death.
The statistics paint a grim picture. Nearly 75 percent of all fatal passenger vehicle cases involve a large truck, and over two-thirds of the deaths in fatal truck accidents are occupants in passenger vehicles.
The Chicago truck accident attorneys at Hammond Law LLC have seen first-hand the devastation caused when a large truck collides with a car, pedestrian, or cyclist. We know how the lives of whole families can be forever changed because of the negligence or irresponsibility of trucking companies, truck drivers, and others. That is why we fight so hard to obtain justice and compensation for the victims of such tragedies. We have the experience, determination, and know-how to hold these bad actors accountable and help our clients move forward with their lives.
Trucking Accident Cases Require Experienced Representation
In accidents involving passenger vehicles, issues of liability and fault, as well as who should pay any damages, are often relatively straightforward. But truck accidents can be significantly more complicated. These cases can involve multiple parties who may be responsible for the accident – the truck driver, the trucking company, insurance carriers, and truck manufacturers, among others. Detailed and voluminous federal laws, rules, and regulations govern the trucking industry and can play a prominent role in establishing liability in a trucking accident lawsuit. Additionally, it is not unheard of for trucking companies and drivers to falsify records or engage in other tactics designed to hide their negligence.
If your personal injury lawyer doesn’t have experience with these matters, your efforts to obtain compensation for your injuries and hold negligent parties responsible could be at risk. If you suffered injuries or lost a loved one in a truck accident and you want to obtain justice and compensation for your losses, don’t expect the trucking company or their insurer to take care of you. You need an attorney who has the knowledge and determination to uncover the truth and hold negligent parties responsible for the damage they leave in their wake.
