You need an experienced personal injury lawyer protecting your interests when you have been injured in a trucking accident. Our Chicago personal injury attorneys are skilled in helping you understand your rights after a trucking accident.
Often it can be difficult to determine responsibility and cause in trucking accidents, especially since state and federal laws and regulations govern many trucking policies.
Determining Responsibility in a Trucking Accident
If you’ve been injured in a trucking accident, we understand how frustrating it can be to determine responsibility and receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries. Responsibility can fall on a variety of individuals or organizations, including:
- the driver of the truck or trailer
- the owner of the truck or trailer
- the person or company that is leasing the truck or trailer from the owner
- the manufacturer of the vehicle, tires, or other parts that may have contributed to the accident in some way
- the loader or shipper of the truck’s goods
According to statistics from the Department of Transportation, it is estimated that half a million trucking collisions occur every year, leading to approximately 5,000 fatalities.
