Chicago I-94 Truck Accident Attorneys

I-94 and the Kennedy Expressway in Illinois are heavily used by semi tractor-trailers. Unfortunately, increased truck traffic has led to many serious accidents that have resulted in deaths and serious injuries to people in passenger vehicles. When an 80,000-pound truck collides with a 3,000-pound car, it is the people in the lighter vehicle who pay the price.

At Healy Scanlon Law Firm in Chicago, our lawyers hold truck drivers and their employers accountable when innocent people are injured or killed due to their negligence. 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.

Truck Driver Negligence In I-94/Kennedy Expressway Accidents

Truck driver negligence is a factor in many accidents involving 18-wheelers. Semis do not have the same visibility, maneuverability or ability to stop quickly as a car. As a result, heavy trucks are held to a higher safety standard than passenger vehicles.

Examples of truck driver negligence include:

  • Truck driver fatigue caused by being on the road too long without taking a rest break
  • Truck speeding, unsafe passing, tailgating and other types of unsafe operation
  • Driving overweight or improperly loaded trucks
  • Distracted driving caused by texting or talking on cellphones
  • DUI accidents caused by truck drivers who are operating under the influence

At Healy Scanlon Law Firm, our attorneys understand the pain and devastation a truck accident can cause for you and your family. We have gained a reputation for representation that is both compassionate toward our clients and tenacious with trucking companies.

If the truck driver or trucking company violated federal safety regulations, our lawyers will work diligently to uncover the evidence we need to prove your case in court.
