Overloaded Trucks

Chicago Overloaded Truck Accident Lawyer

Overloaded trucks can cause accidents that injure or kill innocent people. If you were injured or a family member was killed in a truck accident, the Chicago truck accident attorneys of The Horwitz Law Group will investigate to determine whether overloading caused or contributed to the truck wreck.

How Overloading Causes Accidents

Putting too much weight on a truck can cause it to become unstable, hard to maneuver, and difficult to control. Moreover, as the weight of a truck goes up, the stopping distance also increases. A truck that is hard to control and difficult to stop is a danger that puts everyone else at risk.

Each Chicago overloaded truck accident attorney of The Horwitz Law Group is well-versed in the state and federal regulations that govern how much weight a truck can haul. We will investigate to determine whether the truck involved in your accident was in violation of these regulations. If so, we may be able to obtain additional compensation in your truck accident claim by showing that the truck driver or other responsible parties knowingly violated a safety regulation.

Not every attorney is familiar with Illinois and federal truck regulations regarding weight. We use our knowledge of personal injury law and regulatory law to obtain the maximum amount of financial compensation for our clients.

To learn more about how we can assist you in a truck accident claim, please contact The Horwitz Law Group. The initial consultation is free of charge. You will pay no legal fees unless we obtain financial compensation in your personal injury claim.
