Chicago Truck Accidents Attorney

Holding Trucking Companies Accountable for Unsafe Behavior

Illinois roadways are filled with big rig commercial trucks and tractor trailers at any given time. High-speed collisions involving these massive vehicles rarely cause anything less than devastating damage and gravely serious injury or death. Automobiles involved in trucking accidents on Illinois roads are typically no match for the power and size of the commercial trucks seen on our roads every day. Since 2005, Panio Law Offices have helped clients obtain fair compensation for their injuries.

Trucking Accidents & Insurance Negotiations

One of the biggest mistakes made by people injured by commercial trucks and big rigs is going into negotiations with a trucking firm's insurer right away. Large insurers like these are most concerned with settling the case at the earliest stage possible. Statistics show that insurers who settle quickly save the most money on settlements and litigation across the industry. If an injured party settles at the outset, latent injuries may surface following negotiations that will not be covered in the initial settlement. Settlements are contingent upon the injured party signing a release of future liability. Should latent injuries then surface after the settlement is made (e.g. soft tissue injuries or brain injuries), the at-fault driver/entity is no longer liable for those damages.

Who Is at Fault When Trucks Cause Accidents on the Roadways?

Liability in trucking accident cases is a complex issue. Many times the trucking company who owns the vehicle and hires the driver is responsible for the damages. Other times, it's the driver themselves who may be financially responsible. Sometimes the manufacturer of the truck itself is held liable, and others due to defective design or manufacture or even a given municipality if road conditions due to maintenance or defects are causal factors. It takes the expertise of a skilled trucking accident attorney to help determine the responsible party and breadth of damages when these accidents occur.
