Personal Injury Attorneys Serving Truck Accident Victims in Belvidere, IL

If you have been hurt in a truck accident in Belvidere, IL, chances are that you have sustained fairly serious injuries. In January 2013, a 55-year-old Arlington Heights woman was pronounced dead at the hospital shortly after a Freightliner semitrailer truck collided with her 2002 Mazda Protégé in Wheeling. The driver of the truck walked away from the accident without any injuries.

This is typical in truck accidents – the driver of the passenger car dies, while the truck driver does not sustain any injuries. Most accidents that involve passenger cars, bicyclists, or pedestrians and commercial trucks often end with devastating results. The vast difference in weight between the two vehicles elevates the potential for fatalities.

Driver Negligence in Truck Accidents

Unfortunately, the majority of truck accidents occur because an error the drivers of the passenger vehicles make. However, not all truck accidents are caused by the motorists of the smaller cars. Truck drivers can be neglectful and cause truck accidents, as well.

Remember, when you are going up against the company that the truck belongs to, you are often battling obstinate lawyers with a variety of resources. They are paid to protect the company, and the insurance company for the trucking company will do the same. If you have been injured in a truck accident in Belvidere, IL, you need to protect your interests, too.
