Woodstock is a beautiful place to live, with a rich history, a unique downtown, and gorgeous natural surroundings. But as a small town, many of its inhabitants leave on a daily or weekly basis for work and entertainment. What’s more, large trucks are often seen traveling on US Route 47, which runs through the city, and Illinois Route 120 in order to bring in goods and products. As critical as these roads and large trucks that use them are, they can also be dangerous.
While major truck accidents involving Woodstock residents are rare, they do happen. At the law offices of Brassfield Krueger & Ramlow, Ltd., our Woodstock truck accident lawyers are here to fight for you if you are harmed in a crash.
Truck accidents should never happen, and when they do, it is usually because of a human error, not an act of nature. Indeed, the most common causes of truck accidents in Woodstock include:
If you have been involved in a truck accident, you must first determine who/what caused the accident. Unless you can prove fault, the insurance company of the liable party will not pay your claim. Liable parties in a truck accident in Woodstock might include the truck driver, the trucking company, a shipper or loader of cargo, or a vehicle part manufacturer. Sometimes, a third-party driver may be found at fault. You may even have some of the blame for the accident put your shoulders, a claim that we can help you refute if necessary.
In order to determine liability for your crash, our attorneys investigate your accident and gather all evidence related to the collision and damages you have sustained. We work with numerous other professionals in the process to preserve your claim’s best chances of success.
We know what you are dealing with if you have been in a truck accident.
