Truck Accidents Archives

Additional crashes possible after serious truck accidents

When a commercial-sized vehicle is involved in an accident on Illinois roads, it is very possible that many other vehicles are also involved. Trucks are extremely large and on busy highways and streets, they can strike many other cars when a trucker loses control of his or her rig.

Why do semi trucks jackknife?

Sharing the road with a commercial truck is usually uneventful. You might get frustrated because you need to move over or slow down around them or you may need to be especially mindful of the tractor trailer's blind spots and turning radius, but beyond that, you may not pay much attention to them.

Despite industry efforts, truck driver shortages remain

The trucking industry is crucial to manufacturers, retailers and consumers across the U.S. Commercial trucks are used to transport perishable, heavy and even toxic cargo between states and across the country. It is indeed a critical industry but the fact is that the resources needed to support it are lacking.

Getting from point A to point B not always easy for truckers

Regular motorists across Illinois rarely get in their vehicle without a GPS device or their cellphone handy. This is because when we need to get somewhere unfamiliar, we typically need the help of a map app and real-time directions. Over the years, these devices and products have greatly improved a driver's experience in getting from one place to another by identifying the shortest route, making notes of heavy traffic levels and even setting up alerts for police and crashes on the side of the road.

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.

Truckers must adjust driving behaviors in winter to avoid crashes

Every driver in Illinois knows that winter can be a particularly stressful time to be behind the wheel. The roads are often icy, wet and obscured by heavy snowfall or blowing snow. Despite these unavoidable hazards, there are still too many drivers who fail to appropriately adjust their driving behaviors to avoid winter crashes.

Motorists can pay the price when truckers break the rules

Truckers make their living by driving; getting from point A to point B in time is a top priority. The hours are long and the trips can be grueling; there are inherent dangers that come with this occupation. In order to help keep truckers and other motorists safe, rules have been put in place that are intended to limit unsafe behaviors in the trucking industry.

The aftermath of a truck accident can be catastrophic. When a commercial vehicle is involved in a collision, there is often significant property damage, road closures, extensive cleanup efforts and emergency responders on the scene. This is all in addition to the most devastating damage: the injuries of people involved in the crash.
