Truck Accident Attorneys Calumet City

We depend on tractor trailers, 18-wheelers, and other big rigs to deliver the products and goods we rely upon on a daily basis. Unfortunately, sharing the road with these massive vehicles can endanger other motorists. When truck accidents do occur, it is often other drivers who suffer the most severe injuries. At The Horwitz Law Group., we provide the strong legal representation you need when these types of accidents occur. Our Calumet City truck accident attorneys have more than 20 years of combined experience defending the rights of victims in these cases and can help you get the compensation you are entitled to for your injuries. 

Protecting You Against Truck Accidents in Calumet City

According to statistics from the Illinois Department of Transportation (DOT), more than 1,200 truck accidents occur in Calumet City and the surrounding Will County area each year. Due to the massive size and weight of the vehicles involved, these crashes can cause major damage. While truck drivers are often protected in these accidents, it is often other motorists involved who suffer the most serious damages. 

At The Horwitz Law Group., our Calumet City truck accident attorneys represent clients who suffer the following types of injuries in these crashes:  

  • Soft tissue injuries and broken bones;
  • Severe cuts and lacerations;
  • Burn injuries, due to contact with hot engine parts and fluids;
  • Crushing injuries, which can cause internal bleeding and damage to body organs;
  • Back and neck injuries, such as whiplash and damage to the spinal cord or discs;
  • Head injuries, resulting in a concussion and traumatic brain injuries. 

We Hold At-Fault Parties Accountable

When truck accidents leave you with serious injuries, The Horwitz Law Group., can help you hold responsible parties accountable. According to the Federal Motor Carrier Administration (FMCSA), these accidents are often due to the following causes: 

  • Reckless behavior on the part of the truck driver, such as speeding, driving distracted, and driving under the influence;
  • Mechanical defects and improper truck maintenance, such as failed brake systems and tire blowouts;
  • Dangerous practices on the part of trucking companies, such as providing improper training, overscheduling, and not allowing for adequate breaks.
