Illinois Trucking Accident Lawyers

Truck drivers operate incredibly large motor vehicles, with significant loads attached, and they have a responsibility to others on the road to handle their trucks with the appropriate level of care. Truck driver negligence can result in catastrophic accidents with significant injuries and deaths.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a trucking accident caused by truck driver negligence, you may be entitled to compensation through a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.

Types of Truck Driver Negligence

Truck driver negligence can include:

Speeding

• Unsafe lane changes

Inattentive driving

Truck driver fatigue

Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs such as methamphetamines

Failing to properly secure or balance loads

• Driving in excess of the maximum allowed hours or miles per day or per week

Understanding the Complexities of Truck Accident Lawsuits

Trucking accidents often involve several legal complexities that an auto accident lawsuit may not. For instance, a trucking accident lawsuit frequently involves multiple defendants, each of which may be responsible for the accident in some capacity, including the truck driver, the trucking company, the shipping company, and any employers or contractors.

Trucking companies also understand their potential liabilities and are prepared to any potential trucking accidents. Trucking companies promptly investigate an accident in an attempt to assemble favorable evidence. Accordingly, it is important to retain legal counsel that is highly familiar with the factual and legal issues involved with a trucking accident lawsuit, including issues such as truck driver negligence, truck driver fatigue, and third party claims.

At Ankin Law Offices, our skilled Illinois truck accident attorneys are well-versed in the complexities involved with trucking accidents. If a loved one has been injured or killed in a trucking accident caused by truck driver negligence, contact the knowledgeable Chicago trucking accident attorneys at Ankin Law Offices to discuss a possible personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
