Due to the improved safety design in modern-day vehicles, the severity of injuries from automobile collisions has reduced over the past few decades. There is one exception to this overall trend: the number and severity of injuries from truck accidents.
There are more trucks on the road today than ever before. Many truck drivers are poorly trained or they are driving unsafe equipment. To save costs, many trucking companies have cut back on safety. Also, federal regulations require that truck drivers only drive a certain maximum number of hours per day; however, many drivers violate the rules in order to make more profit.
The Chicago truck accident attorneys at Friedman & Bonebrake, P.C., will protect your legal rights. We have the experience to uncover any safety violations that may have caused your truck accident. We handle 18-wheeler accidents and all other truck accidents.
Recently, our lawyers recovered $950,000 for a woman who was T-boned by a truck that ran a red light. Our client suffered a punctured and collapsed lung, and a herniated disk in her cervical spine which eventually required surgery. We recovered money for her medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and disability. In other recent truck accident cases, we have recovered $1,300,000 for the death of a 17-year-old boy and $750,000 for an injury caused by the negligent loading of pipes on the back of a flatbed truck.Free Consultation: Truck And 18-Wheeler Accident Attorneys In Chicago
