Commercial Trucking Accidents
A highway is one of the most dangerous places you can be, and the Commercial Tractor Trailer is the cause. According to the Department of Transportation, nearly 1 out of 8 fatal collisions were caused by a semi-truck. Our local highways here in Chicago are home to some of the highest amounts of traffic crashes in the entire Midwest.
These iron and steel killers tip the scales at over 40 tons. Add to that an overworked and exhausted driver and that spells disaster to the many unlucky people involved in these semi-truck accidents every year. In a world where money is time, and time is money, truckers are under intense schedules and unbelievable demands. This spreads the semi truck drivers thin and mistakes eventually happen. These companies shall pay for your injuries and compensate for lost wages and other expenses.
A list of the most common causes of semi truck accidents in Illinois:
- Dropped or Spilled Loads
- Sleep Deprivation or Drowsiness Related Crashes
- Driving in Dangerous Weather such as Fog, Rain, Sleet, Snow or other Unsafe Driving Conditions
- Excessive Speed, Improper Signalling or other Traffic Violations
- Improperly Harnessed and Secured Loads
- Mechanical Issues
- Driving Past Allotted Hours on Road which causes Fatigued Truck Driver
- Aggressive or Criminal Driving to make up time
- Failure to Observe Blind Spot
If you have been in an accident preserve as much evidence as you possibly can and call Steven J. Grace to discuss your rights and compensation in the future (312) 493-6912.
