Trucking and Transport Truck Accident Lawyer in Aurora
The field of truck accident law has long been a distinct and muddle field of responsibility and liability.
Historically it was even more difficult to hold a trucking company liable for the negligence of their drivers. Even where a truck driver made a rather serious mistake, getting to their employer, and even their insurance, could present serious legal barriers.
At Willens Law Offices, however, we believe that accident victims have a right to recover compensation for the injuries they suffer in a truck accident, and we will advocate aggressively on your behalf if you have been hit by a truck in Chicago or the surrounding areas.
What Caused Your Truck Accident?
Truck accidents can be caused by a variety of different factors. Of course, one of the most common causes of truck accidents is distracted driving, which could occur if the truck driver is using a cell phone or tablet, eating, or simply not paying attention to the road. Many truck drivers operate their vehicles while fatigued as well, hoping to get to their destination in a shorter period of time in order to reap a larger payout.
In some cases, the accident may not be from driver error, but instead may result from a piece of defective equipment within the vehicle.
Regardless of the cause of the accident, it is imperative that you get in contact with a professional Chicago truck accident attorney immediately for help with your case. An attorney can take a look at the specifics and help you determine who was liable for the wreck and, ultimately, from whom you should attempt to recover compensation in a personal injury case.
It is important you act fast, however, as the statute of limitations in Illinois only allows you a short period of time in which you may be able to file a case, after which you will be barred forever.
