Joliet Truck Accident Lawyers

Attorneys for Truck Accident Injuries in Will County and Grundy County

The sheer size of most commercial trucks often spells devastation for those involved in truck accidents. With a massive weight difference between passenger vehicles and trucks, the results are often catastrophic injuries. If you have been seriously injured in a truck accident, hiring an experienced personal injury attorney is the best way to ensure you receive the compensation you need and deserve. At the Law Offices of Tedone & Morton, P.C., our attorneys are experienced in handling truck accident cases. We aggressively pursue compensation from all responsible parties and make sure our clients have what they need financially.

Liability in Trucking Accidents

Truck drivers are often under a lot of pressure to deliver their loads on a strict time schedule. Consequently, drivers frequently drive longer shifts than is allowed by law and may drive aggressively while on the road. Driver fatigue is a common cause of trucking accidents. In these cases, both the trucking company and the truck driver may be liable for the accident. Our attorneys thoroughly investigate all aspects of the accident including company logbooks to determine if proper resting procedures were followed and if driver fatigue contributed to the accident.

In addition to driver fatigue, poor truck maintenance can also contribute to a truck accident. Maintaining a truck in safe operating condition is a shared responsibility between the driver, the trucking company, and any third party maintenance companies. By exploring all avenues of compensation, our attorneys seek to maximize the settlement or judgment our clients receive.
