Top Chicago Truck Accident Lawyers

In 2019, 12,505 truck accidents occurred in Illinois, and 1,935 of these accidents resulted in injuries, while 114 caused fatalities. If you have suffered serious injuries due to a truck accident, our top Chicago truck accident lawyers at the Horwitz Law Group are ready to assist you in recovering the maximum financial compensation available for your truck accident injuries. 

The Complex Nature of Chicago Truck Accident Claims

Compared to other collision types, including auto accidents, truck accidents are simply more complex because of the multiple parties that can be held liable and the insurance providers who defend them. Likewise, since most truck drivers are employees, they are backed by companies who have ample experience in defending injury claims and lawsuits involving personal injuries and wrongful deaths.  

What’s more, the injuries that victims sustain are more serious (sometimes deadly) when large trucks are involved. Truck accidents typically cause debilitating and life-threatening injuries that don’t just leave injured victims physically hurt but unable to work and support their families due to overwhelming medical expenses. Injuries that we commonly see from truck accidents include: 

  • Multiple shattered bones and compound fractures
  • Internal bleeding
  • Severe lacerations and bruising
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Severe spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Loss of limb

Many truck accidents are caused by driver fatigue and driver error, and our legal team regularly handles cases where victims are severely injured in truck accidents that involve the following: 

  • Intersection collisions
  • Rear-end crashes
  • Head-on collisions
  • Left-turning crashes
  • Rollovers
  • Jackknife crashes
  • Poor and/or improper truck maintenance
  • Driving at excessive speeds

The Value of Truck Accident Claims

The value of truck accident claims is normally higher than other types of vehicle accident claims. Trucks are much bigger than other motor vehicles and cause more damage. Also, trucking is a business, which means more chances of higher compensation amounts. In addition, injured victims typically face more serious injuries, others don’t fully recover, and some die. 

But the specific value of a truck accident claim would depend on the victim’s individual losses and what they are specifically trying to recover. In any case, injured victims have the right to recover non-economic and economic damages through a settlement or lawsuit. These damages can include all medical costs associated with the accident, lost earnings, pain and suffering, property damage, and/or punitive or exemplary damages.

If the truck accident resulted in death, the deceased victim’s family members can seek justice and recover compensation for the loss of their loved one.
