Illinois Truck Accident Lawyers

According to the most recent statistics issued by the Illinois Department of Transportation, in 2009, there were over 9,000 accidents involving tractor trailers in Illinois. Although we are headquartered in Chicago, our truck accident lawyers represent clients located throughout the state who have suffered serious personal injuries, property damage or the loss of a family member in a truck accident.

Such accidents commonly involve:

  • Distracted truck truckers
  • Intoxicated truck drivers
  • Sleep-deprived truckers
  • Overloaded or unsafe trucks
  • Hit-and-run
  • Rear-end collisions
  • Rollovers

We also represent those injured in truck accidents, collisions or crashes resulting from defective products or design, such as defective seatbelts, tires or gas tanks.

Recently, our truck accident lawyers settled a wrongful death lawsuit for $6.5 million for the family of a 32-year-old woman who died when a semi-truck collided with the rear-end of the vehicle she was riding in. The trucker was under the influence of marijuana and operating an overloaded, unsafe tractor-trailer.

Injuries suffered as a result of these types of accidents can be severe and life altering due to the sheer size of many semi-trucks and tractor-trailers. As a result, it is important to take action to recover compensation for the harms caused. This includes compensation for your injuries, inability to earn income, hospital bills, pain and suffering, and so forth.

How do I Take Legal Action?

If you or a loved one were injured in a truck accident as a result of someone else's negligence, you should first contact a law firm with experience handling trucking accident cases. It is also important to find a firm that has the resources to litigate very complex truck accident cases. Please note that there are time limitations for filing accident lawsuits in Illinois so you should take action as soon as possible to protect your right to file a lawsuit.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a trucking accident, contact a trucking lawyer online or call our firm at 877-374-1417 or 312-332-2872 to discuss your potential claim in a free consultation with one of our attorneys.

If we decide to take your case, you will not pay us fees unless or until we recover a settlement or verdict in your favor.

Margaret, Daisy and Bryan. This magnificent cohesive team led by Margaret represented us for my mom's nursing home wrongful death case. They were most patient and responded timely to many questions throughout the entire process. All demonstrated professionalism and extensive knowledge of case and state laws. Their in-depth investigative work uncovered details which were unknown to us and yet sadly confirmed our suspicions. We would recommend the Levin and Perconti Law firm and especially this team.

I want to send my heartfelt thanks to John Perconti and the Levin & Perconti staff in taking our case. Not only were they so professional but also so caring and thoughtful. It was very difficult going over the facts in our mother's case but they were so compassionate and understanding and allowed us to be with them every step of the way. We were able to sit in on the depositions and we were really able to see how hard they worked on our behalf. M.R.Z., nursing home client
