In Illinois, cars and other passenger vehicles share freeways such as I-290/Eisenhower Expressway with an increasing number of heavy trucks. However, if there is an accident, we do not share in the damages. Truck drivers typically walk away from collisions, while the people in passenger vehicles suffer devastating injuries.
At Healy Scanlon Law Firm in Chicago, our lawyers hold truck drivers and their employers accountable when their negligence injures or kills innocent people. We have obtained numerous multimillion-dollar recoveries for accident victims, including many verdicts and settlements over $20 million. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
Examples of truck driver negligence that can lead to accidents include:
Deregulation of the trucking industry has led many trucking companies to put profits ahead of highway safety. Our attorneys have gained a reputation for making trucking companies pay when they break the law to increase their bottom line.
There is never a charge to discuss your case with one of our Illinois I-290 truck accident attorneys. Evening and weekend consultations are available. To speak to us, call 312-226-4236 or send us an e-mail.
