Cook County Truck Accident Attorney
Gurnee, Illinois Personal Injury Claim Lawyer
Of all motor vehicle accidents, those that involve trucks are often the most catastrophic. The sheer size and weight of any truck is enough to crush smaller vehicles and cause great bodily harm or death as a result of the significant impact. If you or a loved one was recently involved in a trucking accident, seek the counsel of Marks & Associates, Ltd., a premier personal injury firm serving Lake County, Cook County and the Chicagoland area.
Helping Truck Accident Victims in Chicagoland
Attorney Jason Marks works regularly with truck accident victims, so he is fully aware of the issues that are involved. He takes on trucking companies and insurance providers that are not looking out for your best interests. Since he frequently represents truck accident victims, he is knowledgeable about the mix of issues to consider. For example, if the injury occurred while driving for an employer, you may also have a valid workers’ compensation claim in addition to a personal injury claim.
Whether you are facing a long road to recovery or making funeral arrangements for a loved one, you need assurance that someone will be held responsible for your injuries and damages. Mr. Marks has recovered millions of dollars of compensation on behalf of his clients and is ready to help you today.
Causes and Types of Truck Accidents
The Illinois Vehicle Code and federal guidelines outline the duties, responsibilities and expectations assigned to those who operate trucks on Illinois roadways. Trucks for personal and commercial use have the potential to cause serious injuries and damages in a collision. Mr. Marks has extensive experience handling all types of truck accidents caused by:
- Distracted driving
- Truck defects
- Driver fatigue
- Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
- Truck operator error
- Safety violations
- Worn or broken parts
These acts of negligence can contribute to front and rear-end collisions, side swipes and even multi-car pile ups. Trucking and insurance companies are not required to consider your best interests. You need an attorney who understands the challenges you are facing and will do whatever it takes to help you get the compensation you need.
