Illinois Truck Accident Lawyer

The injuries (and property damage) that arise out of truck accidents are usually severe due to the truck’s size and weight. If the accident occurs while a truck is going at high speeds, the injuries and property damage are often even worse.

If the truck accident that has left you catastrophically injured is due to someone else’s negligence, you deserve maximum compensation for your medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

At SAM LAW OFFICE, LLC, our trucking accident attorney aggressively pursues personal injury claims on behalf of our clients. Please contact us today to set up a free initial consultation to discuss your situation and how we may be able to help you.

Aggressive. Honest. Efficient. Semi-Truck Injury Attorney.

Attorney Susan Marks will thoroughly investigate your accident and possibly enlist accident reconstruction specialists and other experts to ensure that all parties liable for the accident are held responsible. Many factors, including all types of truck driver errors, may contribute to a semi-truck crash and can result in many serious injuries such as:

  • Closed head injury
  • Spinal cord injury and paralysis
  • Crush injuries
  • Burns, broken bones, and amputation
  • Wrongful death

Although truck accidents often occur with cars, these accidents also occur with motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians. The injuries arising out of these kinds of accidents can be some of the most traumatic due to the lesser protection afforded the victim.

Trucking Accidents Caused By Truck Driver Errors

To maintain the commercial driver’s license required to do their job, truck drivers must adhere to strict federal trucking laws and obey the rules of the road. Truckers are held to a higher standard than drivers in regular passenger vehicles, and for excellent reasons. Given the size and weight of semi-trucks and other large commercial trucks, accidents involving such vehicles are likely to cause serious or fatal injuries to other motorists.

Despite strict laws and regulations designed to prevent tractor-trailer accidents, these devastating crashes are still widespread. One reason for the many truck accidents is truck driver negligence. Examples of truck driver negligence and/or errors include:

  • Fatigued driving
  • Failing to secure the truck’s load properly
  • Failing to thoroughly check equipment, including brakes, tires, and lights
  • Violating weight restrictions for the road or vehicle
  • Speeding, including over the posted limit or too fast for current conditions
  • Failing to maintain a safe distance between vehicles
  • Unsafe or aggressive driving
