Accidents Caused by Truck Driver Errors

Northern Illinois Truck Accident Attorneys

Truckers are required to maintain a commercial driver's license, abide by strict federal trucking regulations and obey all traffic laws. Truckers are held to exacting standards for good cause. Semi-trucks and other large tractor-trailers have the ability to cause serious and fatal injuries to other motorists. Due to the sheer size and weight of such vehicles, even crashes at low speeds can have disastrous consequences.

Despite strict trucking laws and regulations that are designed to reduce the incidence of truck accidents, such accidents are still far too common. Frequently, such accidents are the result of trick driver errors, which may include:

  • Truck driver fatigue
  • Failure to properly secure loads
  • Failure to check brakes, tires and lights
  • Failure to maintain a safe distance
  • Unsafe driving in adverse weather conditions
  • Weight violations
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding

If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, contact an experienced personal injury attorney at Brady & Jensen. We serve injured persons throughout Northern Illinois, including the Chicago metro area, Cook, Kane, DuPage, Lake, McHenry, DeKalb, Boone and Winnebago counties. To speak with a personal injury attorney at our firm, contact our law offices in Elgin or Geneva, Illinois.

Experienced and Knowledgeable Truck Accident Attorneys

To properly handle a truck accident case, a personal injury attorney must have a thorough understanding of complex insurance coverage issues, trucking company policies and commercial trucking laws. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling truck accident claims and understand how to build strong cases on behalf of injured clients.

We take time to investigate the cause of accidents. When necessary, we have access to accident reconstruction experts and other expert witnesses who may assist in the effective prosecution of truck accident claims. Due to our experience in truck accident cases, we understand what issues to examine, what questions to ask and what evidence is critical to the success of such claims.

We have considerable experience in cases involving serious and catastrophic injuries, including broken bones, back and neck injuries, spinal cord damage and brain damage. We have also successfully obtained compensation on behalf of many family members in wrongful death claims.

We understand that our clients may have significant medical bills they have incurred and may require extensive medical services in the future. If you have suffered serious injuries, you may also have had to take time off of work. If you have suffered a disabling injury, your ability to earn a living may be impacted for life. Our attorneys are committed to vigorously pursuing the full compensation you are entitled to receive for past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other forms of available relief. As skilled negotiators and trial lawyers, we can provide the vigorous representation you require.
