Illinois Senator looking into truck safety after key accident

A federal safety agency tasked with overseeing the commercial trucking industry is now under review. News sources have reported that Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin has called for an examination of how the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is handling proposed measures aimed at identifying key issues regarding commercial truck safety and intervening on behalf of the public.

How negligent hiring practices affects your truck accident case

If you have experienced an accident with a commercial tractor-trailer, you are probably lucky to have survived. Commercial big rigs are extremely heavy even when they are not carrying freight. Even a minor collision between a semi-truck and a car or SUV can result in catastrophic injuries such as brain damage or spinal cord trauma. Often the injuries caused by truck accidents force victims to endure years of expensive medical treatments and rehabilitative therapies.

The central location of our state in the middle of the nation's main highways ensures that Illinois roads are constantly filled with commercial tractor-trailers. Big rig drivers naturally go through rather rigorous training and testing to make sure that they can handle their vehicles under a variety of conditions.

Time is of the essence in your Illinois truck accident case

If you have been injured in a collision with a tractor-trailer, your decision to act quickly is important to preserving your future claims. In a previous posting to our website, we discussed how gathering evidence soon after a truck accident greatly increases the effectiveness of that information.
