Truck Accidents in Illinois

The Southern Illinois Truck Accident Specialty Law Firm

Truck accidents are generally not the same as car accidents. The injuries that result from a truck accident are usually catastrophic. This is because of the sheer size difference between massive trucks and the smaller vehicles with which they commonly collide. Victims of truck accidents, even those involving smaller trucks and delivery vans, tend to suffer serious injuries. Regardless of the severity of the injury, if it is the result of negligence, our law office is here to help.

There are different laws specifically geared towards operators of large trucking rigs. Truckers have specific regulations they have to follow and often have aggressive representation from the very beginning of an unfortunate collision involving injury or death. In addition, nearly all big rigs, semi trucks, and other large trucks on our Illinois roads and interstates are commercial vehicles. Commercial vehicle operators and the companies that employe them are upheld to further legal requirements in operating such vehicles. The rules and parties involved in commercial accidents like in Illinois truck accidents make your truck accident claim even more complicated.

When you have been hurt or a family member has lost their life as a result of a devastating truck accident, you look to your choice of a lawyer for expertise, representation, and counsel. Our attorneys have the experience and unwavering commitment you are looking for.

For more than 70 years we have been representing Illinois residents and their families in complicated commercial truck accident cases in Southern Illinois. We are here to provide the counsel and encouragement you need, as well as the legal skills, to help you get back on your feet after a car or truck accident.
