While any kind of traffic accident can cause bodily injury, none are as likely to result in severe injury or accidental death in Chicago as those involving 18-wheeled trucks. These large vehicles are often difficult to control in the best of conditions, as statistically evidenced by the number of collisions that occur during the daylight hours, on dry roads, and in good weather (roughly 70-75%). When such common contributors to accidents as driver fatigue, intoxication, and speeding factor in, the likelihood of an 18 wheeler accident only worsens. And, unfortunately, the people most often injured or killed are in the smaller vehicles with which they collide.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident in Chicago you do have legal recourse to ensure compensation for your pain and suffering, loss of property, and other damages.
