Homewood 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.

When Should You Call a Trucking Accident Attorney?

If you have been injured in a trucking accident, it is vitally important that you seek the counsel of a skilled, experienced trucking accident attorney who has the expertise and track record for winning the highest awards in these cases for their clients. Panio Law Offices attorneys have that experience.

We have won millions of dollars in damages for our clients in trucking accident lawsuits and settlement negotiations. Our personal injury attorneys are aggressive advocates for each of our clients' rights, and we work assiduously to ensure that your rights are represented at every step of the damage recovery process.

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.

Common Causes of Trucking Accidents

It's vitally important that anyone injured in a trucking accident seek the counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney like those of Panio Law Offices. We will work on your behalf understanding all of the possible damages to which you may be entitled, protecting and preserving your rights to recover those damages and supporting your efforts to get on with your life.

Common trucking accident causes include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Driving under the influence
  • Driving while distracted
  • Aggressive drivers
  • Overloaded and improperly loaded trailers
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Rollover

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.
