Allegretti & Associates of Chicago has significant experience handling personal injury cases, specifically truck accident lawsuits. Speak with attorney Jim Allegretti or a member of his legal team today and find out your rights in the aftermath of an accident with an 18 wheeler, semi, and tractor trailer in Chicago.
Most 18 wheeler accidents are caused by the same factors. The majority can be blamed on some form of driver error or poor maintenance of the truck. Truck drivers are frequently found to:
• Drive excessively long hours and don’t take enough breaks
• Drink or use narcotics while driving or DUI
• Drive recklessly
Poor vehicle maintenance also plays a role in many truck accidents. Examples include:
• Brake failure
• Flat or worn-out tires
• Improperly secured cargo
• Too heavy cargo for the roadways being utilized
When combined with the ever-increased crowding of roadways in and around Chicago, the danger of being involved in an accident with a truck increases. In a collision with an 18 wheeler, semi truck, or any type of tractor trailer, you and your passengers are at the greatest risk of injury or worse. The Allegretti law firm understands that the pressure on truckers to deliver more, faster than the competition is no excuse for the kind of reckless behavior that leads to the injury or death of innocent automobile occupants. He will put together a comprehensive Chicago truck accident lawsuit on your behalf to recover as much for your pain and suffering and other losses as legally possible.
Accidents happen, but a collision with an 18 wheeler or other trucks is much more likely to occur because of a driver or company’s negligence.
