Experience And Resources To Handle The Most Difficult Truck Accident Cases

Interstate 55 through Illinois and Highway 72 between Champaign and Quincy are major truck thoroughfares that carry thousands of commercial vehicles through the region every day. Illinois has the unfortunate distinction of being one of the most dangerous states in America in terms of accidents involving large trucks and commercial vehicles. In a typical year on Illinois roads, highways and interstates, more than 5,000 commercial trucks are involved in accidents, resulting in more than 2,500 injuries and fatalities.*

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates truck drivers and truck companies in order to provide a safe driving environment for all vehicles using our national roads. Even a minor miscue by a driver or neglecting a maintenance requirement by the truck owner can mean deadly consequences for other drivers on the road.

Why Semitruck Accident Cases Require An Experienced Lawyer

Truck companies know they face significant liability if they are sued because of negligence. Often, these companies carry additional personal injury liability insurance coverage, and many even self-insure to pay claims that exceed their coverage limits. These companies are often large, national or multinational corporations with teams of experienced defense lawyers protecting their bottom line. A common strategy is to offer an early settlement that appears sufficient, but may be significantly below the full extent of damages the victim is entitled to. We aggressively pursue full and fair compensation, and work to keep as much money in your pocked as possible.
