An Overview of Truck Accidents

The single most common form of personal injury is from an accident involving some form of transportation – whether that be a truck accident, or an accident involving a car, bus, train, boat, motorcycle, a combination of any of these, or some other form of motor vehicle. As someone who has been injured in a truck accident, the law allows you to sue in a civil action called a tort. A tort is a complicated process, and that means you require an experienced attorney like Chicago based personal injury lawyer Michael Brennan, to gain fair compensation for your accident.

With the volume of traffic in Chicago and Illinois , tragic truck accidents regularly occur. In fact, in the US , every 16 minutes a person is killed or injured in a truck accident. Truck accidents may be caused by someone’s negligence, perhaps driver negligence, or faulty equipment and warning systems. In a truck accident, as opposed to a motor vehicle accident, a unique set of factors may also play a part. These include drivers becoming aggressive after being stuck behind a truck, unrealistic schedules for truck drivers, long shifts and fatigue in drivers, blind spot issues, jack knifing, and a failure to adhere to truck speed limits.

It may not be someone in a vehicle that is injured – this information is equally relevant if you were a bystander, a pedestrian, a motorcyclist, or a bicyclist and were injured in a truck accident. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact a personal injury attorney, such as Michael Brennan, as soon as possible.

There are some scary statistics on truck accidents. According to the Illinois Department of Transportation, in 2006, there were more than 4000 truck accidents that resulted in death or injury in the Illinois area alone. More than 169 people were killed in Illinois in 2006 in a truck crash. Did you know that transport vehicle accidents cost Illinois citizens more than $10 billion every year? That makes it more important than ever to contact a personal injury lawyer such as Michael Brennan, who is situated in both Orland Park and Chicago , if you have been injured in a truck accident.

Often, it can be very difficult to negotiate with your insurance company in regards to a truck accident. Can you imagine how difficult it would be to handle if more than property damage was involved?

He will advise you on your rights for compensation and will pursue that on your behalf, represent you in court if necessary, and will advise you on any other options available to you.

The compensation that you can claim covers a number of aspects. You may get compensation for your medical bills, including past, current, and future care. You may get compensation for lost wages if your ability to work has been impaired. You may also get compensation for reasons that are less quantifiable, but are still very important. These include pain and suffering, disfigurement, and loss of consortium (which, simply put, is when your spousal relationship has been affected).
