McHenry County Truck Accident Lawyers

A collision between two passenger vehicles can result in serious injuries. You can imagine that a crash involving a passenger vehicle and a large commercial truck can result in catastrophic injuries or even fatalities. The size and weight of these large trucks put other motorists at risk every day. Since trucking companies own most of these large trucks, they are willing to defend their drivers, forcing you into litigation. Understandably, you do not have the same legal experience as the trucking company’s insurance provider or its defense attorneys, which is why you need skilled McHenry County truck accident lawyers on your side.

At Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd., our injury lawyers have more than 70 years of combined experience assisting McHenry County clients with their large truck accident claims. Our goal is to protect your rights and help you get the compensation you deserve.

How McHenry County Truck Accident Lawyers Can Help

When you have been injured in an accident caused by another driver’s negligence, the claims process can feel overwhelming. We will be there, helping you at every step of the way. We will start by conducting our own investigation, reviewing the existing evidence, and hiring industry experts if necessary.

You want an attorney who has experience with trucking accident claims and how the trucking industry works. That gives you an advantage in understanding how these companies build their defense against you. Due to some industry deregulation in recent years, trucking companies now feel that they have the right to push their drivers to stay on the road longer. This leads to shorter delivery times, which mean higher profits for the trucking companies. Truck drivers are left overworked and even more fatigued while on the road. That can be deadly for you and other motorists.

Be wary of the initial contact you receive from the trucking company. They will send an investigative team out right away, possibly to the scene to start collecting evidence. They may talk to you and ask questions. Remember, they are not on your side. They are looking for ways to deny your claim or save the trucking company money. Anything you say to them is an opportunity for them to use it against you later on.

That is why retaining an attorney who has experience with truck accidents is so important. Also, you want to hire an attorney early on. Doing so keeps you from communicating with the trucking company’s investigators and claims adjusters. All communication will go through our office instead.

Causes of Truck Collisions

The most common causes of a large truck accident in Illinois stem from negligence, be it from the driver or the trucking company itself. Driver error, overloading the truck, and failure to perform safety/equipment checks are several common examples of negligence.
