Why Truck Accidents are Complicated

Illinois and Missouri Truck Accident Lawyers

Have you or a loved one been injured in a truck accident? Truck accidents are often large scale and bring about complicated, large-scale issues.

To ensure your rights are fully protected, you should take legal action as soon as possible after the accident. Evidence must be preserved so that the accident can be reconstructed at a later date. Witness statements must be taken as soon as possible before witnesses forget details.

If you have been injured in a tractor-trailer accident, or if you have lost a loved one in a fatal truck accident, contact our firm today to schedule a free case evaluation.

Understanding the Complexities of Truck Accidents

Our team of attorneys will work vigorously to obtain compensation for your medical expenses, pain, suffering, lost wages and other losses. Truck accidents present many complicated issues that must be addressed in a timely manner. Our firm will stand by your side as we look at each component of the truck accident, such as:

  • Who is responsible for the truck accident? The truck driver, the trucking company, or both parties?
  • What was the cause of the accident? We often work with accident reconstruction experts to investigate the accident scene and analyze evidence such as skid marks, driver log books, impact locations and more.
  • What type of injuries have you sustained? We seek compensation for victims of serious injuries that include fractured bones, brain and spinal cord injuries, and neck and back injuries.

Truck accidents are complicated because extensive investigations may be required immediately at major 18-wheeler crash scenes. Injuries are often severe, and fatal accidents frequently occur.

The trucking company will have their team of attorneys at the accident scene. Evidence can be “lost” or misplaced. Action must be taken quickly. The law firm you choose must have the resources and the dedication to handle your case.
