Truck accidents can cause devastating damage to motor vehicle drivers, leading to severe injuries and even death. If you are in a collision with a truck, you can face mounting medical bills, lengthy and painful recovery, and a multitude of other damages.
If you suffered injuries due to a truck driver’s negligence in Wheaton, Duncan Law Group can help. Our attorneys have represented Illinois residents in their personal injury claims for years and will fight aggressively for your right to compensation.
Illinois is a fault state, which means the person or entity responsible for your collision must pay for the damages you sustain. To know who is liable for your collision, you will need to identify the cause of the crash before you can file your claim.
Many liability issues can arise after a truck accident. You can hold the driver responsible for your claim, as well as his or her employer. If the investigation finds that a defective part caused the crash, you may hold the manufacturer responsible.
Duncan Law Group has the resources necessary to conduct a full-scale investigation into your claim. We will request and review all relevant pieces of evidence as soon as possible after your consultation, helping you identify the at-fault party and building a comprehensive case for your compensation.
Truck accidents can result in very high amounts of damages, compared to motor vehicle collisions. These crashes often lead to devastating injuries that require intensive and lengthy treatment, keeping you out of work and possibly preventing you from returning to your job completely.
You can claim damages for your tangible economic losses, as well as the emotional damage you suffer. It is not uncommon for truck accident settlements to total over $1 million — and filing a personal injury lawsuit can help you claim this compensation.
Common types of damages in truck accident claims include the following:
In certain claims, you may qualify for punitive damages as well. Courts award punitive damages to punish an at-fault party who acts in a way that is intentional, willful, and wanton, or fraudulent at the time of the accident, leading to your injuries.
