Chicago Truck Accident Lawyer

Chicago, Illinois, with a population of about 2,896,016, is properly described as a metropolitan area, one with significant traffic, and numerous truck routes such as US 55, US 90, US 94, US 290 and IL 41, where accidents are waiting to happen. Big rigs and other trucks are some of the biggest vehicles on the road. These fast moving powerful vehicles carry heavy loads at all hours of the day and night. Truck drivers have a dangerous job transporting loads, no matter what road or weather conditions in an inadequate amount of time. Pressures from the trucking company can sometimes put pressure on the driver to cut corners, risking their safety and the lives of others. Although drivers are required to adhere to federal regulations involving time on the road, taking breaks and their loads, shortcuts in driver safety can result in negligence behind the wheel. Under federal and state laws, a trucking company may be held liable for driver negligence occurring in Illinois. A Gordon & Elias truck accident lawyer will vigorously defend an injured client’s rights by holding trucking companies and their drivers accountable for their trucking accidents.
