Chicago DUI Trucking Accident Attorneys

Truck drivers who decide to drink or use drugs and drive put everyone else on the highway at risk. The Chicago DUI trucking accident lawyers of The Horwitz Law Group pursue financial compensation for people who were injured by drug- or alcohol-impaired truck drivers. We also represent the family members of those who died in fatal truck accidents involving driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Holding Drivers and Others Accountable

Truck drivers are professionals. They must undergo special training to obtain a commercial driver’s license. As such, they are expected to perform at a higher standard than other drivers. Our Chicago truck accident lawyers will hold them to that standard. We will aggressively pursue full compensation from negligent truck drivers who drink, take drugs, and harm others.

We do not stop with the truck driver. Our attorneys know that in many cases, truck drivers do not get paid unless they are driving. Some truck drivers take stimulants in order to meet unrealistic deadlines and schedules set by the trucking company. Our law firm will investigate to determine if the trucking company’s own policies contributed to the accident.

Finally, we will determine whether a truck driver was overserved alcohol at a bar or restaurant. If so, we may pursue compensation from the establishment.

A trucker who drove while under the influence and caused an accident is likely to face criminal charges. Injured parties can pursue financial compensation for losses in civil court whether or not the driver is convicted of a crime. Our attorneys will monitor any criminal action against the driver for evidence and information that could be used in a personal injury claim.
