Negligent truck accidents affect your health, vitality and life

You have probably heard the following sentence a thousand times, but we believe common sense sometimes bears repetition very well. When a massive semitruck loaded with heavy cargo collides with a smaller personal vehicle, the results can be catastrophic.

In crashes involving two cars in which one is heavier than the other one is, simple physics dictate that the smaller car will fare worse than the larger one. Now, imagine a tractor-trailer in place of the larger car and it is easy to visualize the potential devastation that can occur.

Some of the more serious injuries we have seen in large truck accidents include:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Head, neck and brain injuries
  • Internal injuries
  • Severe back injuries
  • And wrongful death

Sometimes, an accident is an accident and no one can see how it could have been prevented. However, the attorneys in our practice have seen many cases in which negligence played a critical role in serious truck accidents. We believe these victims deserve a way to be made as whole as possible in the aftermath. It is especially important that you look beyond the physical injuries to see how their lives will change after a truck accident.

  • Loss of health or life
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of mental and emotional health
  • Loss of future opportunities
  • Loss of mobility

All of these losses are important and all of them deserve compensation when negligent behavior caused or contributed to a serious accident. We urge all victims harmed in an Illinois truck accident to seek a legal opinion. Please see our website to learn about your available legal options.
