Legal support can be crucial for Illinois truck accident victims

Collisions involving a huge tractor trailers are among the most catastrophic types of motor vehicle accidents. The sheer size and weight of a truck make it an enormous threat to other motorists if a trucker loses control of his or her rig.

In many cases, victims of these accidents and their families are eligible to collect compensation for the considerable damage that can be done in a truck accident. However, pursuing this compensation can be very complicated, especially if you are already struggling to recover from a crash.

To begin with, you must be sure that there are grounds for a legal claim in the first case. You will need to establish that negligence or recklessness contributed to the accident, which means finding evidence of factors like distraction, failed maintenance, improper operation and other indicators of a failed duty of care.

It will also be necessary to identify all the parties that may be liable for the accident. In many motor vehicle accidents, it is only the driver who may responsible for the crash. But in truck accidents, there may be reason to hold a truck company or product manufacturer accountable for the crash in addition to or instead of the trucker.

Finally, you will need to determine the damages that you are seeking. While it may seem easy enough to add up your medical bills, costs of repairing your vehicle and lost wages for the time you had to take off work, you can also seek non-economic losses including pain and suffering. This can be very difficult for a person to calculate on their own because it needs to be done in a thorough and objective manner.

Trying to do all of this on your own can be enormously challenging. Rather than go through this alone or give up, we urge you to discuss your case with an attorney at Kanoski Bresney. We have decades of experience helping victims of serious accidents pursue the compensation they deserve, and we are available to discuss your case with you.
