Chicago Truck Accident Attorney

Millions of Dollars Recovered for Accident Victims

Traffic accidents involving large, commercial trucks like tankers, big rigs and tractor-trailers, can cause major devastation. The sheer size and weight of these vehicles, when coupled with significant speeds, can crush smaller vehicles in the event of a collision. Unfortunately, the occupants of smaller cars and SUVs have a much higher risk of injury or death than truck drivers. In fact, it is not uncommon for truck accident victims to suffer injuries that are catastrophic, or permanent, in nature.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a truck accident, it is important to act swiftly. The Chicago personal injury lawyer at Duncan Law Group has proven results in seeking fair compensation for accident victims. Whether your personal injury or wrongful death claim involves legal action against the truck driver, the trucking company or even the manufacturer of defective equipment, you can come to our firm for dedicated legal support and aggressive representation at every stage of your case.

Building a Case For a Truck Accident

Gathering and preserving vital evidence must be done as soon as possible before it is lost. Commercial vehicles frequently contain data recording devices - commonly known as black boxes - which record crucial data related to the RPMs of the wheels, braking, and speed immediately prior to a collision. This information can be crucial in proving a case against a commercial carrier and its driver. In addition, witness information needs to be obtained as soon as possible while the information is still fresh.

Acting quickly can mean the difference between being able to establish negligence against the trucking company or not. Truck accidents can be caused by several different factors, from mechanical failure to driver error to improper cargo loading to faulty road conditions; therefore, multiple parties may be responsible for causing or contributing to the accident. Having a Chicago injury attorney who is familiar with all of these factors is important so that all sources of compensation are identified.

We may be able to help you establish that the truck driver:

  • Failed to take their designated rest breaks
  • Drove while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Failed to abide by state or federal trucking laws
  • Conducted themselves in a reckless or careless manner
  • Failed to secure their cargo properly and/or safely
  • Failed to inspect the condition of their vehicle
