Interstate 80 is the second-longest interstate highway in the country. Its Illinois section runs 163 miles from the Quad Cities east into Indiana, along the southern edge of the Chicago metro area. As the primary east-west route through Illinois, I-80 sees a steady and heavy volume of cross-country semitruck traffic.
Most of these long haul truckers do their best to be safe, but crashes on I-80 are still too common. At Healy Scanlon Law Firm in Chicago, we are passionate about helping those who have been injured in truck wrecks in Illinois, including on I-80. Our clients come to us with severe injuries, mounting medical bills and possibly with the need for lifelong care. We are proud to help these clients hold accountable the truckers and trucking companies whose conduct led to these serious consequences.
Trucking accident cases are won only through careful preparation, thorough investigation and strong trial skills. These are all strengths for our Chicago-based attorneys.
Our knowledge of trucking laws and regulations, both state and federal, helps us succeed. So too does our experience handling cases in communities across the state. We understand, for example, that a personal injury case stemming from a crash on I-80 near Moline may be different than a crash on the Tri-State Tollway. Why? Because toll roads are often owned by private companies that may need to be involved in the case.
Whether the truck that hit you was a semitruck, a delivery truck or any other kind of commercial vehicle, we can help you get compensation. Our ability to get results is known throughout the state. Trucking companies and insurance companies know we do not take marginal cases. Results count, and we will work tirelessly to achieve a positive outcome for you and your family.
