The impact of a semi truck accident – both physical and emotional – can be devastating to victims and their families. The difference in weight between a tractor-trailer and a passenger car, combined with the speed of a crash, often causes catastrophic injuries in the smaller vehicle.
Steve Seidman and our associate attorneys are experienced and successful trial lawyers. Our Chicago, Illinois law firm represents victims of trucking accidents throughout the greater Chicagoland area, including Cook County and communities in Kane, Will, DuPage, and Lake counties.
Contact Seidman Margulis & Fairman, LLP immediately if a family member has been injured or killed in a trucking accident. We get investigators to the scene as promptly as possible to gather evidence. We photograph the scene extensively (often aerial photos), interview witnesses, and frequently summon an accident reconstruction expert to preserve the scene.
We obtain the driver's ICC log books and maintenance records on the truck. Our Chicago area semi-tractor trailer accident attorneys also investigate the driver to see if he/she had been driving too many hours or was under the influence of medications or stimulants at the time of the accident.
Utilizing The Best In Technology
Seidman Margulis & Fairman, LLP works closely with a computer animator who can simulate the truck accident. Presenting the evidence in this format is very effective in mediation or settlement negotiations. Our firm has obtained many substantial insurance settlements and jury awards in personal injury cases.
