Determining Liability After a Commercial Truck Accident in Chicago

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 commercial vehicle accident attorneys are knowledgeable about state and federal laws pertaining to commercial vehicles such as weight limits or restrictions on hours behind the wheel.

Our Chicago truck accident lawyers put the owners of commercial vehicles on notice to preserve logbooks, freight manifests, maintenance records, black box data recordings, and other relevant evidence.

Our 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.
