Who Can I Sue After A Truck Accident?
Depending on the circumstances, numerous people may be liable for your injuries. This may include the truck driver, the trucking company, the owner of the truck and the manufacturer of the truck or truck parts. Other drivers may also have contributed to the accident. Our attorneys are committed to exhausting every option in seeking the compensation you deserve.
How Much Compensation Can I Obtain In A Lawsuit Against A Trucking Company?
There are so many variables among truck accidents that it is impossible to estimate how much your case will be worth. Typical damages our lawyers seek for victims include current and future medical expenses, current and future lost wages, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. You may also be eligible to collect funeral expenses and other compensation if a truck accident resulted in the death of a family member.
Can I Still Recover Damages If The Truck Accident Was Partially My Fault?
Illinois’ comparative fault laws stipulate that if a court finds you are more than 50 percent responsible for causing an accident, you may not pursue compensation through a personal injury claim. Comparative negligence also means insurers may reduce the amount of money they offer in proportion to how much fault you contributed to the accident. We will use our skill and experience to protect your right to seek the damages you deserve.
