Truck Driver Error in Illinois

There are many different factors that can contribute to the cause of a truck accident. Often, one of the contributing causes, if not the main cause of a truck accident is error on the part of the truck driver. Drivers of big rigs can cause an accident in many different ways. They can be speeding or driving too fast for weather conditions, change lanes improperly, tailgate a car in front of them or be driving while distracted or fatigued.

As an attorney with over 30 years of experience handling truck accident cases, I know how to gather the proper evidence and information necessary to determine if truck driver error was a contributing or primary factor in causing a truck accident. I have investigators and accident reconstruction experts on call 24 hours a day to investigate an accident a soon as possible after it occurs so that the true cause of an accident can be determined before crucial evidence is removed from the scene or destroyed.

It is important that you call me as soon as possible after you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident so that I can gather the necessary evidence to make sure you receive the maximum possible compensation for the injuries or death caused due to the fault of the truck driver or trucking company.

If or a loved one has been injured or killed in a semi-tractor trailer accident, contact me as soon as possible for a free initial consultation so that your interests can be represented by an attorney with over 30 years of experience handling semi-tractor trailer accidents in the Chicagoland area.
