Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Many factors can cause or contribute to a truck accident. The Chicago truck accident attorneys of The Horwitz Law Group understand where to look for these potential causes and how to hold the negligent parties responsible. Our law firm aggressively pursues full and fair compensation for those injured in accidents involving large commercial trucks.

Common causes of commercial truck accidents can include:

Sometimes the cause of the accident cannot be determined without a study by an accident reconstructionist. When necessary, our lawyers will retain accident reconstruction specialists to find out what factors led to the accident that injured or killed an innocent person.

Once we know what caused the accident, our next step is to determine who is at fault. More than one person or company may share legal responsibility for the accident. We then use our experience and legal knowledge to pursue full compensation for all of our client’s accident-related damages, from medical bills and rehabilitation expenses to lost wages and property damage.
