Truck Accident Lawyer Chicago

Accidents involving trucks are often seen in areas like Chicago, where business is booming. In addition to the trains, airplanes, and other forms of transportation used for moving different types of goods, large trailers are excellent for carrying larger loads. 

With a much larger population than many cities and significant traffic, truck accidents are particularly common in Chicago. While the causes of truck crashes differ, many can be traced back to negligence on the part of the truck driver or trucking company. If you suffer injuries in a crash, identifying liability is critical, and you should contact a truck accident lawyer in Chicago right away. 

What Do I Do If I Am Involved In A Truck Accident?

It can be challenging to remain calm and know what to do following a traumatic truck crash. However, it is important to take certain steps to protect yourself and your legal rights. If you can, do the following in the immediate aftermath of a trucking accident:

  • Call 911 and report the accident to the police
  • Get the medical help that you need for your injuries
  • Gather as much evidence as possible
  • Discuss your rights with a truck accident lawyer in Chicago

Who Is Responsible For a Truck Accident?

Truck accidents are often more complex than any other kind of road accident. This is because there are many parties and highly technical machines involved, as well as many additional federal truck regulations. While truck drivers might be to blame, other liable parties might include:

  • The trucking company that owned the truck or employed the driver
  • Third-party cargo-loading crews
  • Truck or tire manufacturers

It is important to identify all liable parties because there might be additional sources of compensation for your losses. This way, we can work to ensure you receive the full amount you deserve, even if it exceeds the truck driver’s policy limits. 

Should I Hire a Truck Accident Lawyer For My Case?

Every truck accident victim should have the right legal assistance when it comes time to file one or more insurance claims. An experienced truck accident attorney can help with every aspect of the case, including:

  • The investigation into what caused the crash
  • Preparing and filing all necessary insurance claims
  • Communicating and negotiating with insurance companies on your behalf
  • Filing an injury lawsuit if needed to obtain the full amount you deserve

Insurance companies – especially those representing large trucking corporations – know how to take advantage of unrepresented accident victims. It is important to have a skilled and respected truck accident lawyer handling your case. We can identify when an insurer is trying to get you to accept far less than you deserve, and we will fight for enough to cover your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses.
