Joliet Truck Accident Lawyer

Joliet, Illinois, with a population of about 106,221, is properly described as a metropolitan area, one with significant traffic, and numerous truck routes such as US 80, IL 6, IL 30 and IL 52, where accidents are waiting to happen. Although the shipping companies will claim their drivers are responsible, well trained employees, the fact remains that the drivers of big rigs work under constant pressure. Long hours, bosses demanding that shipments be made on time, and the monotony of the road all contribute to an environment of stress, and create risk for those innocent parties who also must use the truck routes. There is no doubt about it, the roadways are dangerous without trucks, and are more so with them. 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.

Joliet Landmark: The Illinois and Michigan Canal ran 96 miles (155 km) from the Bridgeport neighborhood in Chicago on the Chicago River to LaSalle-Peru, Illinois, on the Illinois River. It was finished in 1848 when Chicago Mayor James Hutchinson Woodworth presided over its opening; and it allowed boat transportation from the Great Lakes to the Mississippi River and the Gulf of Mexico. The canal enabled navigation across the Chicago Portage and helped establish Chicago as the transportation hub of the United States, opening before railroads were laid in the area. It ceased transportation operations in 1933.
