Illinois Truck Accident Lawyer - Aurora, Chicago, Glenview and Plainfield Illinois Truck Accident Attorney

For years, the public has seen the open road as a symbol of freedom and independence. Yet with the increase of registered commercial and industrial trucks traveling along the highways of Illinois, the experience of riding upon the asphalt of the highways in one's vehicle has become a dreadful experience for many. Not only driving on the major highways but through large cities such as Chicago can be difficult. Every year, approximately 6,621 fatal and non-fatal truck accidents occur in the state of Illinois, according to data from the U.S. Department of Transportation. Due to the immense size and weight of these vehicles, nearly 37 percent of these truck accidents result in injuries and over 100 deaths. In almost in every case, it is the driver and the passengers of the cars that sustain the most damage from these types of collisions, while the driver of the truck will often walk away from the scene without any serious injuries. Common injuries from a truck accident include spinal injury, back and neck, head trauma, multiple fractures, and even loss of limbs. This is why it is important for those who were involved in a tractor trailer collision to secure their financial future by contacting an attorney since they may be out of work indefinitely and require extensive medical treatment and therapy.

A trucking accident is not the same as a car accident since the trucking industry has special federal and state laws that govern how they operate. For that reason, not all attorneys can handle an Illinois truck accident case.
