Truck Accident Injury Attorneys/Lawyers

Rockford Personal Injury Lawyers Assist Victims of Truck Accidents

Seasoned Illinois attorneys seek maximum compensation for truck accident victims

While any motor vehicle accident can result in injury, accidents involving commercial trucks can be particularly devastating. The sheer weight and size of semi-trucks and tractor-trailers elevate the potential for fatal damage — and the tenacity and resources of trucking companies mean they’ll protect themselves at any cost. At Brassfield, Krueger & Ramlow, Ltd., our trucking accident attorneys have spent more than seven decades advocating for the rights of Rockford citizens injured in truck accidents. From analyzing the evidence to maximizing the impact of your case with field expert testimony, our lawyers leave no stone unturned when optimizing your claim. Aggressive and fearless in resolving your case, Krueger & Ramlow is the Illinois name you can trust for the compensation you deserve.

Tireless litigators who know how trucking companies build their cases

In recent years, the trucking industry has become increasingly deregulated. As these regulations are lifted, trucking companies push their drivers to drive faster and shorten delivery times. The result is often overworked truck drivers suffering from sleep deprivation and driver fatigue — putting the lives of other drivers, especially those in passenger cars, in danger. No matter who or what caused a truck accident, the trucking companies start their own investigations within minutes. They send investigators and insurance adjusters to the scene and collect only the evidence that favors their defense. That’s why, following a truck accident, you need attorneys whose powerful resources and determined advocacy can match those of the trucking companies. Our Rockford personal injury attorneys have both the skill and experience to successfully resolve your truck accident claim.

Have you been in a trucking accident due to driver or trucking company negligence?

Whether you’re injured in a rear-end collision, rollover or hit-and-run accident due to driver fatigue or improper truck loading, our experienced truck accident attorneys can help. We leverage knowledge gained from experts in the field and witness testimony to craft an aggressive strategy for your case.

As an experienced truck accident law firm, Brassfield, Krueger & Ramlow works hard to prove the trucking company or driver was at fault due to one or more of the following factors:

  • Driver error. Of all the causes of trucking accidents, driver error is ten times more likely to be the cause of a crash than any other factors, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA). Usually the result of fatigue, common truck-driver errors include distraction, intoxication and general inattention.
  • Equipment failure. The second-most common cause of trucking accidents is equipment failure, which includes inadequate reflectors, insufficiently maintained brakes or tires and otherwise ignored FMSCA equipment guidelines.
  • Overloaded trucks. Many truck accidents result from overloaded trucks or improperly loaded cargo. Items such as falling logs, pipes and appliances present serious hazards to other drivers when a truck’s load is overweight or imbalanced.
