Every year there are thousands of truck and semi accidents on Illinois roads and highways. Due to the sheer size and weight of commercial trucks, these accidents often result in catastrophic injuries or even deaths. At the law office of Botto Gilbert Lancaster, PC, we are experienced in handling personal injury cases stemming from truck and semi accidents. We have the skills to thoroughly investigate the causes of these accidents and pursue full compensation from all liable parties on behalf of our clients.

Causes Of Truck Accidents In Illinois

Illinois highways see a significant amount of commercial truck traffic every day. As these massive vehicles crisscross the state, there are many different things that can cause an accident. Some common causes include:

  • Driving under the influence of drugs (including over-the-counter, prescription, and illicit drugs)
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol
  • Speeding
  • Driver fatigue/sleep deprivation
  • Driving on unfamiliar roads
  • Driver negligence (i.e. failing to check the blind spot during a lane change)
  • Distracted driving (i.e. texting while driving)
  • Aggressive driving
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Truck equipment failure (i.e. defective tires, brake failure)

Depending on the cause of the accident, more than one party may be liable for your injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one. For example, if the cause of the accident is driver fatigue due to long haul driving at the direction of or with the knowledge of the trucking company, both the driver and the trucking company could be held financially responsible. Our attorneys pursue any and all routes for compensation for our clients to ensure you receive the greatest possible financial recovery for your injuries.

Cases involving the trucking industry can be complex and a significant amount of investigation is often required to uncover the true cause and all liable parties. Our firm has the resources to investigate your accident and ensure all parties are held accountable. We handle our personal injury cases on a contingency basis, so we do not collect until you collect.
