Chicago Truck Accident Attorney

Featured: Attorney Uche secures $1.18 milliom against Chicago police for wrongful death.

Truck accidents are almost always catastrophic. This is entirely due to the size, weight and momentum of the average tractor trailer. To be sure, in most truck accidents, death is an all too common occurrence along with various degrees of spinal paralysis.

Like car accidents, most trucking accidents are preventable.  For instance, some of the most common causes of truck accidents can be attributed to:

Distracted truckers
Drug or alcohol abuse
Driver fatigue
Overloading
Speeding
Equipment failure
Inexperienced and improperly trained drivers
Negligent hiring
Driver negligence

Beyond most of the causes listed above, most truck accident investigations reveal consistent violations of federal and state safety regulations applicable to truckers and trucking companies. Unfortunately, most of these violations stem from trucking companies desire to put profits  ahead of human safety. For instance, it is not uncommon for trucking companies to ignore something as little as tire safety servicing in order to boost profits by reducing the need for maintainance costs. 

As if the catastrophic nature of the injuries and the negligence weren’t enough, most trucking companies have multi layered insurance policies making such cases more complex in terms of recovering damages.

As former prosecutors, we have the forensic ability to navigate through the complexities and the catastrophe that usually accompany truck accident cases.  In truck accident cases, we target all forms of recovery from punitive damages if applicable, wrongful death damages if applicable, compensatory damages, emotional distress, pain and suffering and payment or refund for payment of medical bills amongst others. 

Beyond focusing on truck accident cases, our firm also focuses on other forms of personal injury such as:
