Peoria Truck Accident Lawyer

Peoria, Illinois, with a population of about 112,936, is properly described as a metropolitan area, one with significant traffic, and numerous truck routes such as US 74 and IL 24, where accidents are waiting to happen. There are many factors which are instrumental in the occurrence of trucking accidents. Fatigue is high on the list.

Stress and fatigue can quickly amount to an accident. 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.
