Northern Illinois Accidents Caused by Truck Driver Fatigue

Elgin Truck Accident Lawyers

Truckers are often paid by the mile and feel pressure to log significant miles. When truckers drive for significant durations without adequate sleep or rest breaks, their ability to focus on the road and drive safely is significantly impaired. As a result, truck driver fatigue is a contributing factor in many truck accidents.

Federal trucking laws require commercial truckers to take adequate rest breaks. Other laws and safety regulations place a duty on semi-truck drivers and other commercial truck drivers to safely operate their vehicles. Unfortunately, truck driver fatigue and other forms of truck driver errors are still far too common.

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.

We Thoroughly Investigate Accidents and Act Decisively

Truckers and trucking companies carry insurance policies that often have significant policy limits. As a result, insurance companies for the trucking industry are very aggressive in investigating truck accidents and in defending truck accidents claims.

To counteract aggressive defense tactics, our attorneys handle each case with meticulous care. We investigate the cause of accidents, speak with witnesses, identify all responsible parties, conduct thorough discovery and prepare each case for the possibility of trial.

Our thorough case management sends a message to the insurance companies that we mean business. By building a strong case and demonstrating our preparation for trial, we are often able to help our clients obtain full and fair recoveries by negotiated settlement agreements. When the insurance companies are not willing to be fair, we are fully willing and prepared to advocate vigorously for our clients at trial.
