$2,250,000 Settlement – Catastrophic Truck Crash
A young man was riding home from college with his best friend when their car was cut-off by a huge semi-tractor trailer. The car left the roadway and rolled over multiple times – launching the young man from the car. To make matters worse, the 20-year old man was thrown onto a rural barbed-wire fence. His extensive internal injuries required emergency surgery, multiple subsequent surgeries, and extensive recuperation and therapy.
Frequently Asked Questions about Truck Accidents
A truck driver who swerved and hit my car said it wasn’t his fault; he swerved because his load shifted and caused the suspension to break. Is he right?
Truck accidents are complex. Sometimes the neglect falls on the driver — fatigue, distractions, alcohol, erratic driving; other times neglect for truck crashes falls on others – poor maintenance, improper loading, overloading, or road conditions. An experienced personal injury attorney will investigate and help you sort through your claim to identify the responsible party. The benefit of hiring an expert is knowing that you can focus on recovery while we ensure that you have access to the compensation you deserve.
A large semi-trailer truck turned and clipped the front of my car. He said it was my fault for ‘squeezing’ him while he was turning. Is he right?
Professional, licensed truck drivers are responsible for avoiding other passenger vehicles who are within designated lanes and for following other Illinois Department of Transportation guidelines. Commercial truck drivers should be aware of their surroundings, but a truck accident lawyer will know the best questions to ask about your case to ensure you get the compensation you deserve. If you have experienced a trucking accident in Illinois, give us a call today.
After the accident, I forgot to take photos at the scene. Do I risk the other party misrepresenting the situation?
Accidents are scary, and details are easy to overlook. As soon as you’re able, write down what you remember happening in your private notes. Share these notes only with your truck accident attorney who will find these notes and accounts enormously helpful in investigating who is responsible and accountable for damages.
