Who Is Liable for Truck Accidents?

Our truck accident attorneys can thoroughly investigate your case and determine the cause of the accident. We can track down all parties who may be liable for the accident and work to ensure that your rights are fully protected. Did a sudden shift in an improperly secured load cause the 18-wheeler accident? Perhaps the warehouse that loaded the truck bears responsibility. Was it a mechanical failure? Did the garage that maintained the truck do its job? Were faulty parts installed? We will leave no question unanswered and no stone unturned in our quest to recover a fair settlement or judgment for you. We routinely work with trucking experts to stay updated on industry standards.

Whether your accident occurred on any of the busy roads throughout the Chicago area—such as Interstate 90, 80, 88, or 55—or on the roads around Aurora, Champaign, or throughout Illinois, it is important to seek the counsel of an experienced attorney. At Woodruff Johnson & Evans, it is our goal to fully investigate all factors in your accident. We work with accident reconstruction experts and industry professionals to gain a clear understanding of exactly what happened. We also work closely with your chosen medical professional to ensure we understand the far-reaching implications of your injuries. With this information, we can aggressively negotiate on your behalf with the liable party’s insurance carrier.
