Chicago Truck Accident Attorney

Truck Accident Claims

Many truck drivers are hard working honest people with years of experience and superior driving skills who responsibly operate within the law.  Like other hard working people they carry out their duties diligently despite pressure to cut corners.  As in any other line of work there are some trucking companies and some drivers who are willing to gamble with the safety of others and put profits first.  When drivers are forced to violate federal regulations or to drive trucks which have not been properly maintained and others are injured, it is time for a Chicago personal injury attorney to take action. 

Truck Accident Lawyer in Chicago

By federal regulation drivers of commercial trucks must meet certain requirements, have certain training and basic skills.  They must be capable of inspecting a truck to ensure it is properly operational before taking it on the road.  These operators must also ensure a truck is properly loaded otherwise it can go out of control.  Trucking companies have a duty to ensure trucks are properly maintained, truck operators are qualified and comply with the applicable federal regulations. 

When the company, the truck operator or both violate any of the regulations in order to "increase profits" and an injury or fatal accident results, the trucking company's insurance carrier swings into action to protect its profits and the trucking company by doing everything possible to prove the truck operator innocent of any liability.  A skilled truck accident lawyer at our firm has the expertise to carry out an investigation into the trucking company, the operator, and the shipper to locate and preserve evidence crucial to proving your case.
