Illinois Lawyers Experienced in Investigating Big Rig Accidents
Due to the size and weight of 18-wheelers, an accident caused by a semi truck traveling even at a low speed can result in fatal injuries to those in the other vehicle. If you were hurt or someone you love died a wrongful death in a truck accident, speak with our attorneys at the Law Offices of Leonard S. Becker. We have extensive experience handling truck accident cases throughout the Chicagoland area that have resulted in serious injuries, including spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries, and wrongful death.

Causes of Trucking Accidents
We pursue compensation for people who have been injured in accidents caused by:
- Driver fatigue
- Careless driving
- Reckless driving
- Improper load balancing
- Brake failures
- Texting and driving
- Inadequate truck maintenance
When you retain our services, we will begin an immediate investigation into the accident. In truck accidents, a prompt investigation is critical in order to gather vital evidence, including fluid spills, log books and the truck’s data recording device. After carefully evaluating the facts and consulting with any relevant experts, we will determine the causes of the accident and pursue full compensation against the responsible parties.
In accidents caused by commercial trucks, there are many potentially liable parties. The owner of the cab, the owner of the trailer, the company responsible for loading the truck, the truck driver or the manufacturer of the truck could all share fault for the accident. Our team will find out who is responsible for the accident and why.
