Primary Causes of Truck Accidents

More than 120,000 collisions involving at least one truck have been investigated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and the federal agency has come up with one convincing figure. Driver negligence is responsible for around 87 percent of all truck collisions.

Chicago Truck Accident Compensation

We prepare a list of the expenditures and losses that must be covered. When anticipating what future needs will be there are many things to remember. There may be expenses for those severely injured not immediately related to the accident. In addition to the usual earnings loss estimate, work retraining may also be required. It may take extensive renovation to accommodate a wheelchair to allow a victim of a truck accident to stay in his or her home. There are also other cases where coverage is required and our team of truck accident lawyers ensures that they are included in the compensation received.

Our team is responsible for ensuring that concrete evidence from the accident scene, such as the driver's logbook, is preserved, and eyewitnesses are found and interviewed. We employ well-respected experts from the crash scene to rebuild the crash scene and ensure that no blame is transferred.

Partial Responsibility in Illinois for Accidents

You may have contributed in a variety of ways to the truck crash but that doesn't automatically mean you can't file a lawsuit against the party responsible. Illinois follows modified laws on comparative negligence, so you can still claim compensation for your losses, but your proportion of the blame will be deducted from your award.
