Truck Accident Lawyer By Me

Large commercial truck accidents are a major public health problem in Illinois. According to data collected and published by the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), there were more than 11,000 tractor trailer accidents in the state in 2014 alone. Victims of these accidents often sustain severe, even life-altering, injuries. If you or a family member has been hurt in a tractor trailer crash, you have legal options available. Please contact a nearby truck accident lawyer as soon as possible.

Liability in Illinois Truck Accident Cases

Illinois operates under the ‘comparative negligence’ standard. Essentially, this means that parties will be held legally liable for an accident in direct proportion to their level of ‘fault’ for that crash. Of course, assigning fault in a commercial truck accident case can prove to be incredibly complex. Indeed, in some cases, multiple parties, even the victim, may end up sharing blame for the accident. In other cases, the trucking company will be fully at-fault, but will try to fight to push liability onto the injured parties. The bottom line is simple: If liability is contested in your case, you need to get an aggressive attorney involved today.

You Deserve Compensation For Your Injuries

Under Illinois law, eighteen wheeler accident victims have a legal right to be made ‘whole’. This means that injured truck accident victims can seek financial relief that is equivalent to the value of their damages. This includes compensation for intangible losses, which are notoriously difficult to measure. Our team can help you maximize your recovery. Specifically, we may be able to help you fight for:

  • Compensation for vehicle damages;
  • Recovery for all of your medical expenses, including rehab costs;
  • Lost income, including diminished earning capacity;
  • Long-term disability;
  • Pain and suffering; and
  • Compensation for severe physical trauma, such as disfigurement and loss of limb.
