Truck Accident Lawyers in Chicago, IL

Semi-truck accidents frequently cause more serious injuries and far greater property damage than passenger vehicle wrecks. Why is this the case? It is physics. Semi-trucks are much larger and heavier than other vehicles on roadways in Illinois and every other part of the country. When they collide with other cars, they do so with significant force and momentum. 

If you were the victim of a semi-truck accident and are facing medical bills, property damage costs, and other complications, you have options for pursuing a claim for damages. At Driscoll Law Group, we can help you explore them and work to get what you deserve. Start with our Chicago truck accident lawyers by scheduling a free consultation.

Common Causes of Sem-Truck Accidents 

Numerous factors and actions can cause semi-trucks to crash. Below, we have listed some of the most common causes. 

Semi-truck accidents often happen because of:

  • Driver Negligence: This can include driving at excessive speeds, failing to adhere to traffic signs, changing lanes without signaling, and other reckless actions.
  • Hiring Negligence: The hire a driver who is not competent to drive a commercial vehicle and should not have been on the road.
  • Fatigue: Many semi-truck drivers are out on the road for long periods, which can cause them to feel tired and affect their judgments and reaction times. 
  • Vehicle Issues: Faulty brakes, tire blowouts, mechanical failures, and various other problems can spell trouble for semi-trucks. 
  • Distracted Driving: Cell phones are notorious distractions that cause semi-truck accidents. Some others include eating behind the wheel and adjusting vehicle controls. 
  • Poor Weather Conditions: Rain, snow, hail, and fog can all make it difficult for drivers to see and for tires to retain traction. 
  • Inadequate Training: Driving a semi-truck is not simple. Unfortunately, many accidents occur because drivers do not receive proper training to operate and maneuver their vehicles.

Is the Driver Always Liable in Semi-Truck Accidents?

Many parties can be liable in semi-truck accidents. Drivers, trucking companies, vehicle manufacturers, cargo loaders, and maintenance and repair technicians could all be responsible. Ultimately, the blame lies in what caused the wreck. With so many potentially at-fault parties, determining liability is challenging. It often takes thorough investigation and even expert opinion from industry professionals and forensic analysts. Fortunately, Driscoll Law Group is well-connected and have prosecuted numerous successful truck accident cases in Chicago, Champaign County, and other areas in Illinois and across the U.S.
