Illinois Tractor-Trailer Injury Attorneys Working To Maximize Your Recovery

Our attorneys take the time to thoroughly assess your case and truly understand how the accident has affected your life and the lives of your family members. We work with your doctors as well as with vocational experts, life-care planners, economists, and other experts to understand and quantify your loss. This enables our lawyers to present compelling evidence about your injuries or loss, and about the full compensation to which you are entitled.

Our Illinois tractor-trailer injury lawyers seek to maximize your recovery by thoroughly investigating the cause of the truck accident and all sources of liability:

  • Did inadequate warning signs of an upcoming construction zone contribute to a highway semitruck collision and vehicle pileup?
  • Did defective couplers or other defective truck parts cause or contribute to the accident?
  • Did careless driving lead to a truck vs. car collision?
  • Did strict time constraints cause a trucker to drive too many hours without rest, contributing to driver fatigue?
  • Did the company have a history of negligent hiring practices — hiring drivers with poor driving records, chemical abuse problems, or criminal records?
  • Did dangerous road or highway conditions contribute to the severity of the truck accident?
  • Did improper loading of the truck bed contribute to a semitruck rollover?

Proven Results. Our law firm obtained an $8.6 million verdict in a product liability case arising from a trailer accident caused by a defective trailer coupler. The compensation will alleviate the financial burdens associated with the accident, including challenges associated with the victim's brain injury.
