Helping People in Elgin, Schaumburg and Across the Chicagoland Area
Semi trucks are the largest, most imposing vehicles on the road. Most of us, at one time or another, have felt a fully-loaded 18-wheeler breathing down our back. When tractor-trailers collide with other vehicles, it is rarely a fender bender. Truck accidents can cause devastating, disabling injuries, including brain injuries or spinal cord injuries. In the worst accidents, people are killed.
If you have been injured in a truck accident, or if a loved one was injured or killed in a car accident, an Elgin truck accident attorney can be instrumental in helping you get the monetary damages you need for your medical expenses, lost income and other expenses. We are the attorneys of Brady & Jensen. Our firm has been in operation since 1868. Across that time, we have faithfully served countless injured people across Northern Illinois. Trucking companies and their insurers will take every step they can within the law to limit what they pay in claims. Our law firm will provide tenacious, dedicated representation aimed at helping you get the compensation you need.
Commercial truck drivers are trained professionals with an obligation to drive safely. Unfortunately, truck drivers are also under crushing burdens to deliver their cargo as soon as possible. Unrealistic deadlines can lead to the injury or death of innocent people. Truck accidents can have any number of potential causes, including:
- Driver fatigue
- Driver error
- Construction sites
- Drug or alcohol abuse
- Distracted driving
- Other truck driver error such as failure to check blind spots, failing to signal turns
- Overloaded or improperly loaded trailers
We will use all evidence, including the truck's electronic data recorder, also known as the "black box," to find out what happened. We will also locate every potentially responsible party. In truck accidents, there can be any number of companies that share in liability, from the owner of the truck, the owner of the trailer, the company responsible for loading the cargo, and the company responsible for maintaining the truck. You can rely on our personal injury attorneys to identify these parties and put forth a strong effort to hold them accountable.
