Chicago Truck Accident Attorney Helps Victims Navigate the Legal System
Our injury attorneys can help you navigate the legal issues that arise in a personal injury case following an accident with a semi-truck or other heavy duty vehicle. While negligence will generally be the claim for this type of accident, federal and state regulations sometimes bring other claims into play as well. Semi-truck operators follow numerous federal and state regulations and are required to carry insurance with higher limits than standard vehicles. Additionally, parties other than semi-truck drivers may share financial responsibility for your injuries. This is where our experience matters.
We work quickly to preserve evidence and reconstruct the accident scene to establish exactly what happened. Our team will conduct a thorough inspection of the heavy-duty vehicle, the maintenance records, black box information and driver logs. We leave no stone unturned to ensure that every responsible party is held liable for your injuries.
