Chicago Truck Accidents
Dedicated Personal Injury Attorneys You Can Trust
Semi-trucks can weigh upwards of 80,000 pounds, which means they can create
a significant amount of damage in a crash. Truck accidents may not occur
as frequently as car accidents, but those involved in trucking crashes
face a much higher risk of sustaining serious injury.
While all motorists have a responsibility to drive safely, truckers are
expected to take special care because their large rigs can cause more
damage than most. In the event that the driver or trucking company acted
negligently, they should be held responsible for their actions. If you
were injured in a trucking accident through no fault of your own, you
may have a personal injury case.

About Truck Accidents
There are many ways in which trucks can become dangerous on the road. Trucking
companies may act carelessly, truckers may drive irresponsibly, or truck
part manufacturers could potentially create or design faulty equipment.
In any case, if you were injured in an accident because of another’s
negligence, you should seek compensation.
Common causes of truck accidents include:
- Driver fatigue
- Driver intoxication
- Improperly loaded truck trailers
- Inadequate truck inspection
- Manufacturing errors (regarding either the truck or trailer)
- Negligent hiring practices
- Untrained or unqualified drivers
Any of these careless acts could lead to serious accidents, including jackknife
accidents, rear-end accidents, rollover accidents, or crashes caused by
brake failure. Whatever the circumstances of your crash, if you were wrongfully
injured, we want to help.
