Common Causes of Illinois Truck Accidents

At Salvi & Maher, L.L.C., our trucking accident attorneys have helped people injured in accidents caused by:

Highways with heavy truck traffic, such as I-94 and I-294, Route 41, and Route 120, are frequently congested. This adds to the probability of a truck crash causing serious injuries to other drivers.

Truck Accident Injuries

Large truck accident injuries, whether caused by an 18-wheeler or a dump truck, are frequently very serious and are often deadly. Our attorneys have helped victims suffering from brain injuries, paraplegia, quadriplegia, amputation, and broken bones. Such injuries are very costly to the victim, and the associated costs can include hospital bills, physician expenses, prescription costs, bills from therapists and rehab specialists, and charges from in-home care providers. Truck accident victims may be unable to work, adding lost income to the other expenses of a trucking accident injury.

Truck accidents are frequently fatal to drivers of smaller vehicles. Our team represents families of victims who have died in truck accidents. While we know there is no amount of money that could ever adequately compensate for the loss of a loved one, we fight to obtain compensation in order to ease the family's financial burden.

How a Trucking Accident Lawyer Can Help

At Salvi & Maher, L.L.C., our attorneys know what to do to begin the process of obtaining compensation for your serious injuries. We hire specialists to investigate the accident scene. These experts measure skid marks, examine tires, review drivers' logs, and scour maintenance records in order to identify the responsible parties.

We do not hesitate to file lawsuits against large interstate trucking corporations, insurance companies, and vehicle maintenance businesses. However, we also know that reaching a settlement is sometimes in the client's best interests. In short, our approach to truck accident injury claims, and every case we handle, is guided by what is best for the client.
