While local and federal government go out of their way to put strict regulations and inspections on semi-trucks and 18-wheelers, there are situations where mechanical issues occur. Unfortunately, when the breaks fail, the driver in the vehicle ahead could be at the wrong place at the wrong time. If someone you love has been injured or wrongfully killed by a semi-truck, our DuPage Truck Accident Attorney is here to help you get answers.
Truck drivers are under an incredible amount of stress to complete deliveries in a set amount of time. Being put under such pressure from a carrier can result in a truck driver speeding and either losing control of the truck or unable to brake before hitting an automobile. The truck accident attorneys at Sutter Law Group use several methods to verify whether the driver was speeding and negligent. Our DuPage personal injury attorneys specialize in highway truck driving accidents.
It’s no surprise that weather and unfamiliarity with roads are a major cause of semi truck accidents. Cook and DuPage County have multiple highways that feed in and out of the city. Since 18-wheelers share the road with passenger vehicles, all it takes is for rain to turn to ice and we’ve got a recipe for disaster. When semi-trucks are caught in an ice storm or a driver is unfamiliar with our roads, the potential for truck accidents increases dramatically. If you have been injured in truck accident we can help you receive the compensation you deserve. Best of all, our DuPage truck accident attorneys don’t get paid unless we win.
Due to the demand of their job and the amount of time on the road, truck drivers are more prone to drowsy driving. Driving while tired is risky for anyone, but especially dangerous when you’re behind the wheel of a semi-truck. Slow reflexes, decreased vision and impaired judgment create a perfect storm for truck accidents. We’ve helped many families whose loved one were critically and fatally injured by a semi-truck accident.
Attorneys at the Sutter Law Group are experienced truck accident lawyers who have defend the rights of truck accident victims against insurance companies and trucking industry attorneys on a regular basis. Because trucking insurance companies know the level of damage semi-trucks cause, they will try to stack the deck in their favor after a wreck. Often times insurance companies will begin building a case against the other driver by the time first responders arrive at the scene of the accident.
An experienced truck accident attorney can level the playing field, assisting those who were injured in a truck accident due to the negligence or recklessness of a trucker or trucking company.
If you have suffered personal injury due to a truck accident or a family member has died because of someone else’s recklessness, we will help defend your rights by:
To bring a claim against those who did harm to you, we will explain what kind of evidence is necessary, where to find and preserve it.
Insurance companies are experts at undermining those harmed. Our truck accident lawyers will prepare you for methods these companies will use to discredit your case or minimize your injuries.
We will negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf, providing aggressive representation.
Should your truck accident case make it to litigation and trial, we have access to investigators, accident reconstruction specialists and expert witnesses.
