A commercial truck can weigh about 25 times as much as a typical car. Due to this increase of weight, most accidents result in serious and even fatal injuries. Truck accidents are usually not the fault of the driver but the result of road hazards or the negligence of other drivers. If the truck is carrying hazardous or flammable materials, secondary injuries can occur.
The liability may not be limited to the truck driver. In some cases, contractors, employers, and trucking companies may be required to compensate for injuries. The manufacturer or shipper of any hazardous materials carried may also be held liable for injuries. Some damages that can be won from a lawsuit is compensation for physical, emotional, and financial losses as a result of the accident. To ensure any possible claim is properly assessed it is important to consult an experienced attorney. The attorneys of The Horwitz Law Group have the experience, resources and skill required to fight your Illinois Trucking Accident case.
