Illinois Truck Accident Lawyers

Our Chicago-area highways are some of the most congested roads in the United States. In addition to millions of daily commuters, Chicago tollways and freeways support the highest concentration of semi-tractor trailers in the nation.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety truck-related accidents account for an estimated 10 percent of all vehicle-related fatalities. The injuries caused by a truck accident are often critical simply because of the size of a truck and its force of impact. When a crash or collision involves a semi-truck, tractor-trailer, an 18-wheeler truck, or any other large truck, the injuries may include:

• Serious burns and disfigurement
• Internal bleeding
• Loss of limbs, compound fractures or breaks
• Severe concussions or brain injuries / damage
• Catastrophic spinal injuries and paralysis

Because of the seriousness of these injuries, recovery from truck accident injuries can be long and painful. If total recovery isn't possible, then victims often face lenghty rehabilitation time, loss of careers and permanent disability.

LOREN B. SIEGEL & ASSOCIATES, LLC has helped hundreds of families put their lives back together after the trauma of truck accidents by successfully recovering what may often total hundreds of thousands of dollars. Senior Partner Loren Siegel brings more than 35 years of experience to every individual case and works thoroughly and tirelessly to help victims move on, free from devastating financial worries.

From the moment we begin work on your matter, our team of attorneys, clerks and staff aggressively pursues the maximum compensation available for your injuries, beginning with immediate contact with the negligent party's insurance company to initiate the settlement process. While we are expert negotiators and obtain high settlements for many cases, we are also experienced and talented litigators and do not hesitate taking a case to trial if it will lead to optimum financial compensation for our clients' losses, which may include:

  • Lost wages & future lost wages
  • Medical treatment, including hospital, physician and physical therapy bills
  • Future medical treatment, surgeries, rehabilitation and long-term care
  • Pain & Suffering
  • Loss of Consortium & Loss of a Normal Life
  • Wrongful Death

Commercial trucking accidents often may involve more than one responsible or negligent party, including multiple manufacturers and businesses. This is only one reason it is important to contact an experienced injury attorney immediately after any truck or vehicle collision. Our attorneys know what to look for when determining liability and possess expert knowledge of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, Illinois commercial vehicle regulations, Illinois Workers' Compensation laws and Illinois personal injury law. Our accident investigation is always thorough and may include supeonas for cell phone records to determine if those liable were texting or using a cell phone at the time of the accident.

When a truck driver is at fault, we also may review the truck's maintenance records and the driver's logbook to determine whether he or she violated safety regulations, such as driving longer than legally allowed. Truck drivers who are injured in an accident in which another driver is liable may also have multiple injury cases, including a workers' compensation claim.
