Chicago Delivery Truck Accident Lawyers
A knowledgeable personal injury lawyer can help Chicago delivery truck accident victims seek the justice and financial compensation they need.
Every day, thousands of deliveries are made in the Chicago area, from groceries to packages to pizzas. While such deliveries fundamentally contribute to our local and state economy, they also contribute to the congestion of our already overcrowded streets. Worse, because delivery trucks drivers are under strict pressure to meet their delivery deadlines, they sometimes drive in a negligent or unsafe manner, ultimately contributing to the number of vehicle accidents and injuries that occur in Chicago.
Delivery trucks are large, heavy vehicles that can be difficult to maneuver. An accident involving a delivery truck, even at low speeds, are likely to cause serious injuries or even death. Pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists or drivers of smaller vehicles are at particular risk of suffering debilitating injuries in a delivery truck collision.

Causes of Delivery Truck Accidents
Delivery truck accidents may be caused by a number of individual factors or a combination of factors, including:
- Drivers using excess speed to meet deadline
- Drivers making unexpected, abrupt stops on a busy street
- Drivers failing to adhere to traffic laws (e.g., failing to stop on red or use turn signal).
- Drivers being distracted by cell phones, navigation systems, or maps while driving
- Drivers blocking traffic lanes, preventing other drivers, pedestrians or cyclists from seeing around them properly
- Trucks being overloaded, causing tire blowouts or rollovers
- Cargo falling off of truck
- Poorly maintained truck
- Poorly trained drivers
- Fatigued drivers
While truck drivers and trucking companies are often responsible for accidents, they aren’t the only ones to carry the blame. When delivery truck accidents are caused by equipment failure, the fault may with the manufacturer of the truck or its parts. Other accidents may be caused by defective roadways. In these cases, the municipality or state in charge of that road may be liable for your injuries.
