Motor Vehicle Accidents
Champaign Truck Accident Lawyer
Injured in a Trucking Accident?
When a semi-truck and a car collide, the car and its occupants seldom escape serious damage such as brain injury or spinal cord injury. The sheer weight and size of a big truck involved in a collision usually causes severe injuries to auto drivers and their passengers. Whether the accident was caused by the negligence of the truck driver, an equipment manufacturer or any other responsible party, people injured in truck accidents can seek compensation for their lost wages, injuries, medical expenses and other damages.
Our Truck Accident Clients
At the Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, law firm of Frederick & Hagle, we have been helping injured clients since 1975. Our clients have included people injured in accidents on I-55 and I-955. They have been people who suffered permanent and disabling injuries. They have experienced back pain or whiplash that required months of physical therapy to correct. At our law firm, no injury is too small or too large – if you are hurting, we can help.
We have the resources to assess various causes such as driver fatigue, defective equipment, poor maintenance and inadequate driver training. Truck drivers must exercise a higher standard care than other drivers. We determine whether they adhered to that standard.
How Our Law Firm Can Help
Truck crash accidents often involve trucks crossing the center line or median, rear ending another vehicle, failing to stop or yield, or traveling too fast for conditions. We investigate the driver, the equipment (such as brakes, steering, tires and lights), road and weather conditions and other factors that may have contributed to the accident. Our skilled accident reconstruction experts are able to build a complete picture of the accident if they have sufficient evidence. That’s why it’s important to call a lawyer as soon as possible before memories fade or evidence disappears.
