Speeding truck drivers flaunt safety and break the law

Nowhere is the axiom "time is money" more true than in the trucking industry. Truckers in Aurora often get paid more based on how quickly they can make their deliveries, and the truck companies therefore profit from more deliveries made. However, such a culture can lead truckers to engage in dangerous behaviors, notably speeding.

Unfortunately, there are way too many truckers on Illinois streets and highways that seem to view posted speed limits as suggestions, rather than laws. Doing so is a danger not just to the trucker but to others on the road. It is no wonder why drivers become anxious when they have to drive next to a speeding truck driver that is trying to overpass them or is tailgating them. These and other reckless behaviors can cause serious truck accidents that are only amplified by a semi-truck's size, that lead to victims suffering serious injuries or even fatalities.

Should a person be injured by a speeding truck driver, he or she may want to learn more about filing a personal injury lawsuit. However, it can be difficult to handle such situations alone. Instead, the services of an attorney can be invaluable in such situations.

An attorney can analyze the crash situation, with the help of crash reconstruction specialists, by speaking with witnesses and by examining data recorders, to determine what caused it. Once the cause of the accident is understood, it may be possible to prepare a solid case that meets a victim's unique individual needs. The law firm of Brady & Jensen, LLP, has a website devoted to speeding truck driver cases that may be a good resource for those who want more information on this subject.
