When we investigate truck-car collisions, we find that the causes of truck collisions typically fall into a few categories: driver error or negligence, trucking company negligence, or problems with the truck itself. Depending upon the evidence, we may be able to bring a claim against the insurance carrier for the truck driver, the trucking company, or possibly a product liability claim against a trucking manufacturer if the design or manufacture of the vehicle contributed to the injuries.

Trucking Negligence - A young girl was killed when she was struck by a vehicle that had previously collided with a bus that was traveling too fast for conditions. After a ten-day jury trial, a Cook County jury returned a verdict in favor of the family. According to the Jury Verdict Reporter, this is a record high verdict for the wrongful death of a minor in a motor vehicle collision. There was no offer for settlement by any defendant.

Tractor Trailer Collisions

A fully-loaded 18-wheeler semi-truck can weigh as much as 85,000 pounds. At highway speeds, an emergency situation requires a greater stopping distance for the 85,000 pound truck than would be required for a 3,000 pound car. If the truck driver is not well trained, well-rested, and alert, or if the tractor-trailer is not loaded properly or not in good mechanical condition, other drivers on the road are in serious danger We have had extensive experience and success with these types of cases and our results have helped our clients put their lives back together.

Commercial Vehicle Collisions

Every day, thousands of commercial trucks owned by private delivery services and other businesses drive on roads and highways in commercial and residential communities throughout Illinois. Many of these large vans and trucks are operated by drivers who have gone through little or no special training or licensing procedures. In crowded traffic and pedestrian areas, the public is at risk if the driver is unfamiliar how to handle the vehicle properly or the operation of the vehicle in an emergency situations. Our investigations are thorough and aggressive so that we can identify and hold accountable all of the companies or entities involved.
