4 Things You Need To Know About Truck Accidents

Did you know that trucking accidents are much different than regular car crashes? It’s not just because of the sheer weight and size of a truck – there are more factors at play in such an accident. Consider the following:

1. The Causes of a Truck Accident Can Be Complex

One of the commonly cited causes of truck wrecks is fatigued drivers because truck drivers typically drive long hours and distances. Another common factor is defective truck parts, especially malfunctioning brakes. There are also undertrained or inexperienced operators, improper loading of cargo, and lack of truck maintenance. Investigating the factors leading to a truck accident is often not as straightforward as in a car crash.

Learn More About Common Truck Accidents

2. Other Parties, Aside From the Driver, May Be Liable

Many of the trucks we see on the road are commercial vehicles – that is, they are owned and operated by a company. When a commercial truck is involved in a crash, the trucking company may also be held responsible, aside from the truck driver. There are even cases where a truck manufacturer also shares the fault due to their negligence that leads to malfunctioning truck parts.

3. You May Have to Face Powerful Truck Companies.

In an accident where are a large company is involved – such as a trucking company, a shipping corporation, a truck manufacturer, or even a vehicle leasing firm – you can expect to face a powerful opponent in your claim. Such companies have extensive legal resources to minimize claims against them. To protect your rights and fight for what you deserve, get the help of an accident lawyer who genuinely cares for real people instead of companies.

4. You Need to Act Quickly

In the aftermath of a truck accident, you may feel confused and daunted. But remember that if you want justice, you need to take legal action as soon as you can. A body of law called the Statute of Limitations sets deadlines for filing an injury lawsuit. In Illinois, that time limit is two years after the date of injury. For the best chance at success, call an injury lawyer immediately after your accident.

Do Not Settle After A Truck Accident

Chicago Truck Accident LawyersA truck wreck leaves so much loss in its wake.  You are likely saddled with steep medical bills, plenty of missed workdays, high rehabilitation costs, and of course, emotional distress. With these huge burdens, you likely need the relief of monetary compensation.

However, it is important not to settle right away with anything that a company offers you. Truck companies, their insurance firms, and their lawyers are known to have tactics to undermine compensation claims. These tactics include offering you a small amount for settlement – an amount that may be much less than you deserve. Many truck accident victims are vulnerable to this, not even realizing the real value of their case.

You’ll want to protect your rights and best interests after an accident. Before you say anything to these companies, please consult with an injury lawyer who can guide you on what the law entitles you to. Willens Injury Law can provide you with a knowledgeable Chicago truck accident lawyer that can effectively help you obtain the compensation and justice you truly deserve.

Truck Accident Causes In Illinois

There are a lot of reasons for a truck accident, and often, it’s a combination of factors that leads to a wreck. Here are some of the common causes and factors:

BLOWN TIRESBRAKE FAILUREDRIVING ERRORDRIVER FATIGUEDISTRACTED DRIVINGINEXPERIENCED DRIVEROVERLOADINGUNSTABLE LOADSLACK OF VEHICLE MAINTENANCE

You can imagine the heat and pressure placed on the tire of a tractor-trailer. Sometimes, they can rupture. Some companies will even use retread tires; in this case, the glue holding the tread can separate and a massive sheet of metal-laced rubber can be released into your windshield.

You’ve seen emergency truck ramps while driving down steep grades. Large truck brakes can overheat and fail.

The difference in size between a Honda and a tractor-trailer is enormous. Large trucks have more blind spots than your passenger car, so when changing lanes, a truck driver might not see you.

Some companies push their truck drivers too far. This results in overworked drivers who are tired, slow, or drowsy behind the wheel.

Learn More About Truck Accidents Caused By Driver Fatigue

Truck drivers can be distracted not just by mobile phones and devices, but also by items related to their job such as route maps, radios, and even paperwork in the vehicle.

Learn More About Distracted Truck Driving

Driving a large vehicle requires special exercises. Even though federal regulations require truck drivers to go through a certain amount of training, many companies still undertrain their employees. As a result, these drivers are less capable of handling tricky situations on the road.

Sometimes, too much weight is placed on the trailer. This makes the load unstable and more susceptible to an accident.

Learn More About Overloading Truck Accidents

Heavy loads might not be latched down correctly. If a truck hits a bump and you happen to be driving behind it, there could be too much debris to dodge. Improperly-loaded cargo can also cause a truck to lose its balance very easily.

Every truck must be inspected and deemed safe before it can go on the road. Truck operators are required to ensure that their vehicles are compliant with current safety standards. However, numerous trucks slip through these inspections and navigate the highways with outdated safety measures.

Facts About Illinois Trucking Accidents

Chicago truck accident lawyersThe weather, geography, and hectic activity on Illinois roads, especially in the Chicago metro, are a recipe for truck disaster. These statistics from the Illinois Department of Transportation’s 2015 Crash Facts support this:

  • In 2015 alone, Illinois had 11,769 crashes involving tractor-trailers.
  • Of these, 80 were fatal and 1,914 resulted in injuries.
  • A large majority of the persons injured and killed in these crashes were occupants of other vehicles (not of the trucks).

It also doesn’t help that Chicagoland is continuously bustling with motorists. As one of the most populous cities in the US, Chicago is home to the most dangerous intersection in Illinois. That intersection is Stony Island and South Chicago Avenue, according to collated data on motor vehicle crashes.

Thank you so much for taking such good care of me. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I appreciate it. Thank you for all of you hard work!

– K.L. a former client

Other dangerous intersections in the area, according to a Chicago Sun-Times report, include La Grange Road at I-80 westbound ramp in Will County, Cicero Avenue, and 127th Street in Alsip, North Avenue at First Avenue in Melrose Park, and Ogden Avenue at Illinois 59 in Naperville.

Motorists are always advised to exercise caution especially around these intersections, but unfortunately, it only takes a small negligent action to cause a devastating truck wreck. Many trucking companies and drivers today are still able to get away with negligence, especially in the form of safety violations. This carelessness often leads to catastrophic outcomes such as brain injuries, spinal damage, paralysis, amputation, disfigurement, and death.

When trucking negligence results in suffering for you and your family, it’s only right for you to fight for the justice you deserve. Do not hesitate to call us at Willens Injury Law and talk to us about your truck accident.

Common Types of Truck Accidents

The weight and size of commercial trucks pose safety hazards for other vehicles sharing the road with them.

A truck can weigh anywhere close to 80,000 pounds and are not easily maneuverable as compared to passenger vehicles. A collision between a truck and a small car can have a disastrous outcome. Statistics reveal that a driver of a passenger car is 70 percent more likely to be killed in an accident with a large truck than in an accident with a car.

The type of truck accident is dependent on the circumstances surrounding the accident site. The seriousness of the accident and the severity of injuries sustained also depend on the type of accident. Some accidents result in minor injuries, whereas there are others that can cause debilitating and life-altering injuries and even death. That’s why it’s so important to reach out to an experienced truck accident lawyer in Chicago.

Jack-Knife Accidents

This type of accident happens when the brake of the drive axle of the tractor-trailer locks up causing the trailer to start skidding. The skidding of the trailer stops only when the tractor and the trailer are at a 90-degree angle. During this skid, the driver does not have any control over the truck and any vehicle which gets stuck at a 90-degree angle can get dragged along. The truck, generally, tends to roll over after it comes to a stop.

Roll-Over Accidents

A truck rolling over its side or roof can have disastrous consequences for the truck driver as well as the occupants of any other vehicle getting stuck under the truck. A truck may rollover due to various factors such as high speed, sudden braking, steep incline or decline, taking a turn too fast, tripping over a curb, an obstruction on the road, or attempting to correct a drifting truck.

Rear-End Collisions

Large trucks, due to their large size and heavyweight, require a much larger distance to come to a complete stop after the application of the brakes. If the driver has miscalculated the distance, the truck can end up hitting the rear end of the vehicle in front.

Under-Ride Collision

This happens when a smaller vehicle crashes into a truck from behind or the side. Due to the size difference, the smaller vehicle can get stuck under the truck causing severe head injuries to the driver and passengers of the car, which may be fatal.

Road Construction Accidents

A truck driver may face difficulty in maneuvering a truck through a construction zone. An accident like a collision or a roll-over is extremely hazardous for the construction crew and small vehicle getting stuck in the way of the truck.

Illinois Truck Accident FAQs

Compensation (also called “damages”) in injury cases vary widely depending on many factors, including the severity of injuries and the circumstances leading up to the accident. In general, you may be able to claim two types of damages:

  • Economic damages: These are losses that have a clear monetary value such as medical expenses, lost wages or earnings, and rehabilitation costs.
  • Non-economic damages: These are less tangible but may be assigned a dollar value. Examples of such damages are pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and emotional distress.

To get a clear and accurate assessment of how much your case is worth, it is best to consult with a lawyer who specializes in truck accident injuries.

This depends on whether or not the trucking company has legal liability over the truck or truck driver involved. For instance, the company likely has legal responsibility if the negligent truck driver was their employee, or if the defective truck was owned and maintained by them. On the other hand, if the driver or the truck was simply contracted by the company, this may reduce the company’s liability.

It’s important that you discuss this matter with your attorney so that all the liable parties in the accident are pinpointed and made to face the law.

When someone in your family has died due to another party’s negligent actions, it may be a case of wrongful death. Though nothing can ever replace the life lost, you may be entitled to monetary compensation to help relieve the burden you are carrying. Aside from economic compensation, which covers medical, funeral, and other expenses, you may also be compensated for non-economic losses such as emotional distress and loss of companionship.

Talk to us at Willens Injury Law Offices to see how you can find relief in what the law provides for you.

Most injury lawyers charge on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not have to pay any legal fee unless and until you obtain an award from your case. At Willens Injury Law Offices, your initial consultation is also completely free. With us, you can get high-quality legal service without paying out of pocket.

It's been over a year since I was involved in my car accident - everyone knows that is a very stressful time for the injured party. I considered going through the whole process on my own but I quickly realized the insurance company was NOT my friend. I reached out to Willens Law Offices, met Matt and the attorney that would be handling my claim, David Baez. David was excellent, I'm big on communication and anytime I texted David; sometimes ad nauseam, he would always respond quickly and professionally. I had a ton of questions, and David answered everyone of them to my satisfaction. I could not have asked for a better attorney to fight for me, I have extremely high expectations and they were exceeded consistently.

I had an accident injuries and based on google reviews I reached out to Willens Law Offices in Chicago. David Baez helped me with my case. He came to meet us and understood our case in detail and he guided me all the steps of the process. I had advices from friends that you are unnecessarily going after the process and nothing will happen. David made everything worthwhile and he gave right advice always which was right for my health and right for the case. He worked very hard on my case for 2 years collecting all the paperwork, talking to physicians and taking care of my case and making it in my favor. I was truly blessed by having David Baez handling my case who was extremely professional, great ethics and felt as my family with him. After the injuries and pain I was afraid to select one but my God made me select the right one. If anyone feel they need accident injuries lawyer then I will only recommend David Baez. Nobody will beat his hard work, professionalisms, ethics and perseverance and yet down to earth and honest. Thank you for everything you have done for me and blessings from my heart for his success.

I was involved in an accident back in last year and was searching for an attorney who looked like I can trust. I found Matt Willens and I am thankful. I called him up just to get a feel for him as a person and I could tell right away that he truly cared, not only about me but my family too. To say that he fought for us would be an understatement. He was ready to go to trial! Luckily we settled and it was for more money than I imagined, especially after my initial talk with the insurance company. Thanks Matt!

That’s rare in my experience.Matt is an absolute pro and I wouldn’t think to call or recommend anyone else if I or a loved one were injured in the future. Thanks Matt!

When I first contacted Willens law office, I just wanted to make sure everyone was paid after I was rear ended and I wasn’t the one doing it. My correspondence was primarily with David, he was always patient when I was slow to get him information and ended up calling me with great news after almost a year of back and forth with the at-fault insurance company.I can’t thank David and the Willens law office enough.

Willens Law came highly recommended after I was badly injured when hit by an out of control car. I in turn most highly recommend Willens Law based on my great experience over the past year and a half.I am very pleased with both the outcome of my case as well as the experience working with Matt Willens and David Baez throughout the process.I had no specific expectation regarding a case outcome, seeking only ‘the best outcome possible.’ I certainly believe my case outcome was a great outcome. And I strongly believe that outcome was a direct result of fantastic work done by Matt and David.From beginning to end Matt and David were great to work with. They did a great job setting expectations; explaining what was to happen, including the why and the how; guiding me through the steps I needed to take; and answering both my “need to know” and “just curious” questions. They were always extremely prompt and clear in their guidance and responses to me.A silver lining in a tough situation was working with Matt and David, both of whom I came to respect professionally and like personally. I do most highly recommend Willens Law to others who may need such services.

After being in an Uber accident about a year ago, I reached out to Willens Law to assist me through the settlement process. I had the pleasure of working with David Baez. From the start he was very personable and professional. He was always willing to educate me on the process and made sure I understood each step before going forward. Even after receiving my settlement, David has been willing to assist with any questions related to my case. I would highly recommend Willens Law.

I reached out to Willens Law Offices following a car accident that my girlfriend and I were involved in, and we met with David Baez for an in-person consultation shortly after. David was very personable and knowledgeable, and gave us confidence and peace of mind in a situation where we felt initially felt completely overwhelmed. There were times when we felt the communication could have been more proactive, but David was always responsive when we felt the need to check-in, even if there were no significant updates on our case. The process took a little longer than anticipated, but David was honest, thorough, and professional throughout.Overall, great experience and I'd recommend to anyone in need. Thank you David!

We worked incredibly well together, and won a very nice settlement. You would be foolish not to consider Willens Law for your Counsel, as I did. I highly recommend them!Ed Dybas

I would highly recommend Willens Law and David when looking for an attorney to represent you in a case.

I had a tremendous experience with this law firm, and I would highly recommend them. I had a bicycle injury caused by a negligent Uber car, and when I was first doing research and calling law firms all over the Chicago area to find representation, Matt Willens himself returned my call personally within ten minutes. I found that to be a huge integrity move as every other firm I contacted had a lower level employee call me back. Nothing wrong with that per se, but to have the lawyer whose name is on the door personally return my call meant a hell of a lot to me and was ultimately why I decided to meet with them first.I made an appointment and met Mr. Willens and the fantastic young attorney David Baez in their offices and they were wonderful to deal with. They are down-to-earth, funny, intelligent, tenacious, capable, experienced lawyers who explained the entire process to me in a way I could understand and made me feel comfortable and confident, and we were off and running with my case.I work in a law firm and I know exactly how slowly the wheels of justice turn, and my case was settled in about half the time that these things normally take! Amazing results. Mr. Baez and his team were incredible throughout and kept me informed every step of the way, and negotiated a higher settlement number and a lower fee for the insurance company in the eleventh hour which meant more money in my pocket!! I wholeheartedly recommend this law firm for your personal injury case. They are highly skilled and I couldn't be happier. This organization is fantastic and they will produce results for you.

Matt has been there for us every step of the way. He, personally, has taken the time to answer all of our questions. We never feel like we are bothering him or pestering him. We have only experienced patience and professionalism from both Matt and his team.

After a bad auto accident, and months of rehab, Matt Willens and his staff worked with me as though they were part of my family. They were professional, courteous and looking out for my best interest during the entire legal process. I would highly recommend Willens Law Offices for any personal injury.

Do I Really Need a Personal Injury Attorney to Handle My Case?

You are not legally required to have a personal injury attorney to handle your injury claim. You could file all the necessary paperwork yourself and represent yourself in court. However, your chances of winning your case and getting the compensation you deserve are much higher if you hire an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Why You Shouldn't Settle Directly With An Insurance Company

Insurance providers will try to get you to settle quickly. In the midst of your crisis, they might offer you what seems like a large dollar amount. The problem is they rarely make an offer of settlement for the true full cost of your damages. Don’t be misled, hospital bills aren’t the only things for which you will need compensation. You also need to keep in mind the suffering and pain associated with your traumatic event.
