Truck Accident Information & Truck Accident Lawyers In Illinois
Anyone injured in a truck accident on the roads and highways of Illinois can sue for damages for injuries sustained when the truck driver is at fault. Since lawsuits for accidents involving big trucks involve a lot more than ordinary car accidents, it is better for you to contact an Illinois truck accident lawyer than to try and handle the case on your own.
Investigation of the circumstances surrounding a truck accident is crucial. The major trucking companies have a team of investigators and adjusters that they send to the scene as soon as they get a report of an accident involving one of their trucks. If you are in the hospital or at home suffering with a lot of pain, you cannot do this investigation yourself and even if you can, you probably don’t know what to look for. However, an Illinois truck accident lawyer can handle the investigation allowing you the time you need to recuperate.
Even if the truck driver admits fault, you should still retain an Illinois truck accident lawyer. The insurance company will try to get you to settle for a lower amount of money than it is actually willing to pay out. When you have a lawyer to handle the case, the insurance company knows that it cannot get away with this and will try to come as close as possible to what you want to receive.
At the scene of an accident when you are badly hurt, it is often hard to think of anything except your injuries. However, if there are witnesses, you should make every effort to get the names and telephone numbers so that your Illinois truck accident lawyer can take their statements and corroborate your description of the events surrounding the accident. Having credible witnesses can go a long way to establishing liability and helping you to receive the money you need to pay your medical bills. When determining compensation, your lawyer will also include the amount of any wages that you lost due to the fact you were unable to work.
