Have you been injured in an Illinois truck accident?
Interstate 80 through Illinois is a major truck thoroughfare that carries thousands of commercial vehicles throughout the region every day. Illinois has the unfortunate distinction of being one of the most dangerous states in American in terms of accidents involving large trucks and commercial vehicles. In a type 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.
Accidents involving commercial trucks can be much more devastating and complicated than a typical car accident. Truck crashes are serious because when a truck, several times larger than your car, hits you, it can destroy your vehicle and seriously injure you. Many of these accidents are fatal and survivors almost always suffer life-altering injuries. In addition to the human devastation, accidents involving trucks create complex legal cases because of technicalities and multiple parties involved.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident, it is important to obtain experienced and strong legal representation early on. Investigations must be conducted and evidence must be preserved. These steps are vital to a successful outcome. It is important to realize how complex truck collisions can be, as many different parties may be liable for damages.
