After a truck accident and injuries, you may want to get this devastating chapter of your life over with and move on as soon as possible. These feelings are only natural, but acting on them could leave you with regrets for many years to come.

Insurance carriers for the trucking company or the truck driver who caused your accident may try to reach out to you as soon as possible after your crash.

What Causes Truck Accidents?

When you hire an attorney, one of the first steps they will take is to determine how your truck accident happened and who is liable. Truck accidents can stem from many causes, with the majority of them leading back to the truck driver or trucking company negligence or error. The most common causes of truck accidents in Illinois include:

  • Driver fatigue from not following federal regulations or knowing their own limits
  • Truck mechanical failure from a manufacturing defect or lack of proper truck maintenance and inspections
  • Driver intoxication from alcohol or other substances
  • Driver distraction due to cell phone use, animals or other people in the cab of their truck or even eating
  • Lack of adequate training and skills
  • Cargo that is improperly loaded or too weighty for the type of truck
