Serving Victims Of Tractor-Trailer Accidents
Our law firm will stand up to the trucking company
As a national center of commerce, Chicago sees thousands of tractor-trailers and semi-trucks on its highways every day. Most motorists don’t think too much of sharing the roads with those heavy trucks, until they’re involved in a truck accident. Because tractor-trailers are so large, they can cause serious injuries and massive property damage. Unfortunately, these crashes are often fatal.

A truck accident attorney from our firm will investigate your case
Your opponent in your injury claim is the trucking company, and they have several advantages as the case moves forward. They have significant resources and will hire teams of attorneys, investigators and claims professionals to reduce their liability. But their biggest advantage is in terms of evidence. Injury cases are decided based on the facts, and much of the most important information is the trucking company’s property.
Our attorneys will take legal action to obtain critical evidence such as:
- The hours of service (HOS) log
- “Black box” navigational data
- Maintenance records
- Hiring and supervision records
- Police accident reports
In addition, we’ll look at physical evidence from the accident scene, interview witnesses who may be able to testify that the driver was exhausted, distracted or impaired, and follow up on every lead to make sure we’re building the strongest case possible. That’s how we win challenging cases in Chicago – by thoroughly researching each claim and finding that critical information.
Remember, the trucking company will take immediate action in the wake of your accident. You need to act fast, too. Contact our law firm today for a free consultation. Call (800) 529-7285.
