Orland Park Trucking Accident Law Firm

Illinois Dangerous Roadways and Truck Accidents

Truck accidents can happen even when the truck driver is not at fault. However, this does not mean that liability does not lie somewhere. Dangerous road conditions can be the cause of truck accidents, and when that is the case government entities may be the appropriate defendant. I know how to analyze a case to determine who the appropriate defendant should be. And when a government entity is at fault, it is important to contact an attorney immediately because there are limits on when a claim can be filed against them.

There are many ways in which the government can be at fault for creating dangerous road conditions which lead to a semi-trailer tractor accident. Materials used to design roadways or barriers can be defective or inadequate. Curves can be designed too sharply. Lighting, signs or signals can be inadequate or improperly placed or displayed. Construction sites can be designed and managed improperly. I look into every detail of every big rig accident I handle to make sure that all possible causes of the accident are considered and brought to light. This allows you to receive the full and fair compensation for the harm caused by the truck accident you were involved in.

If you or a loved one was injured or killed in a truck accident, contact me today. I can provide you with the best representation available to make sure that full and fair compensation is awarded to you to make you whole after your loss.
