Truck Accidents Archives

You can lessen your risk of a crash with a truck

Large trucks are a common sight on Illinois interstates and other roads. Many of us, nonetheless, get a little nervous when we see a large tractor-trailer or semitruck in front or back of us or in an adjoining lane. Has the driver had enough sleep? Have they been drinking? Has the truck been serviced recently? These concerns are valid because a crash with a truck can result in serious injuries for people in cars.

Spring crashes: Watch out for slick roads

There is nothing worse than seeing a large truck that is having difficulty staying in its lane. With the looming threat of the truck ahead of you, you might try to speed up and go around it or back off and decide to wait and see what happens from a distance. In some unfortunate cases, drivers like you get caught up in the truck driver's inability to control their vehicle, which results in a crash and injuries.

Victims shouldn't have the financial burden of a big rig wreck

Semitruck crashes are the result of different factors, but the one point that is present in all of them is that the victims of these can suffer greatly. It is imperative that they take the time to learn about their rights if they are struck by a big rig.

Sometimes, life deals us unexpected blows. A perfectly normal day could suddenly be bleak when a loved one passes away, for example. In those situations, the last thing you want to have to worry about is lawsuits or who is to blame. You're only worried about yourself and the loss you're dealing with.

Claims for truck wreck compensation must be personalized

The effects that a semitruck crash can have on a victim can go far beyond that person. Their entire family might be impacted. It is hard to think about how life will change if someone suffers from a catastrophic injury. There isn't any one single way that will be true across the board. Instead, each situation is different, which is why claims for compensation must be personalized.

What causes trucks to jackknife?

Jackknifing is one of the most dangerous things that can happen on a highway. When a jackknife occurs, the driver of a truck loses control of the trailer. The trailer swings wide, crossing lanes of traffic and blocking them. This sometimes leads to the truck crashing onto its side.
