Personal injury claims for trucking accidents can be complicated…our trucking accident attorneys are here to help
A tired truck driver may only need one mistake before lives are drastically changed. And any driver, during any time of the day may be affected. That is why there are Federal Laws regarding the safe operation of commercial motor vehicles.
These regulations are spelled out in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR). Illinois recognizes and upholds the FMCSR, which requires trucks to adhere to a higher safety standard. These standards are about driver training, performance, work schedules, safety inspections, maintenance, and documentation of compliance.
Our trucking accident attorneys are well versed in Illinois law and precedent related to trucking accidents. We are also keenly aware that there are time limitations on personal injury and wrongful death claims. That is why you or your family member must contact one of our trucking accident attorneys, immediately, to pursue your claim and pursue justice.
Because there are many things that can contribute to an accident of this type, different parties may be held liable. For example, if the company did not train the driver properly or ignored poor driver performance, they may be held liable. If there was a design flaw in the truck, the manufacturer could be held liable. If the driver was negligent by using a cellular phone, following too closely, or engaging in other hazardous actions, they can be held liable.
Whatever the cause, our trucking accident attorneys at Carlson Bier know how to and are willing to fight. We will support you and make sure you are fully compensated for any suffering you or your loved ones have experienced.
