Trucking accidents account for 10% of all accidents on the road. Let our personal injury attorneys help you today.
Tractor trailers, semi trucks, 18-wheelers and other large commercial are an everyday sight on our roads, freeways, and highways. These huge trucks are used to transport goods in and out of the state, helping to sustain our economy and providing much needed goods and services. Unfortunately, these trucks pose a unique danger that is an inherent risk all drivers on the road must deal with. The huge difference in weight and size of these trucks and passenger cars can cause devastating injuries in the event that there is an accident and/or collision. The injuries can then be even worse for motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians. If you were involved in an accident with a truck, the personal injury attorneys at the Law Firm of www.needaninjuryattorneyillinois.com are here to help you and answer any questions you might have about your accident and your possible options.
While new safety regulations such as mandatory seat belt usage and new air bags have certainly helped many more people survive accidents with these huge trucks, there is still a size disparity to think of. As the use of these vehicles goes up, to import and export goods, the reality is that a regular sized passenger car cannot possibly compete with the size of an 18-wheeler. Collisions with these vehicles are often catastrophic and can lead to life changing events.
These trucks and their drivers are heavily regulated but there will always be accidents and trucks that have simply slipped through the cracks when it comes to regular maintenance. In times like these, if you are injured in an accident with a truck, your first step is to get medical attention. Your next critical step is to retain the help of legal counsel to help you get fair representation and compensation for your injuries and property damage.
