Collisions With Commercial Vehicles

The streets and highways of the Chicago area are clogged with all manner of commercial trucks. Their drivers may be fatigued, pressured to meet deadlines or poorly trained for the responsibility of operating a massive vehicle. These factors increase the likelihood of a collision and the severity of injuries.

If you or a loved one was injured in a truck crash, call the law firm of Seidman Margulis & Fairman, LLP, without delay. Our lawyers take immediate steps that may later be crucial to holding commercial drivers and their employers responsible for damages.

Experienced Attorneys For Truck Accident Injuries

Led by veteran trial lawyer Steve Seidman, our firm has obtained many verdicts and settlements in motor vehicle accidents, including collisions with trucks and commercial vehicles:

  • 18-wheelers and freight trucks
  • Package delivery trucks (UPS and FedEx)
  • Garbage trucks
  • Utility and maintenance vehicles
  • Construction and heavy equipment
  • Limos, taxis and shuttles
  • Food delivery cars

Commercial trucks and fleet vehicles are typically well-insured for bodily injury accidents. On the other hand, big companies and their insurance carriers are represented by powerful defense firms. Our attorneys are knowledgeable about state and federal laws pertaining to commercial vehicles such as weight limits or restrictions on hours behind the wheel. We put the owners of commercial vehicles on notice to preserve logbooks, freight manifests, maintenance records, black box data recordings and other relevant evidence.

Our legal team is also familiar with the devastating injuries associated with truck crashes. We work to ensure that compensation covers the economic losses and personal hardships our clients have suffered.
