truck accidents Archives

Commercial trucks are heavy, but how heavy can they get?

If you find yourself cringing when a big commercial truck approaches your vehicle from any direction, you are not alone. Sharing the roads with these hulking giants is frightening, especially if you stay up-to-date about the number of truck accidents that occur in Illinois.

Trucking companies often create ideal truck accident conditions

Operator error is one of the main contributors to commercial truck accidents in Illinois. However, sometimes the fault for an accident falls more on the trucking company than the driver. Many commercial vehicle companies across the country create ideal conditions that could lead to a serious truck accident. Victims injured in such a collision need to know this information, especially if they are seeking a legal remedy for their suffering.

Trucking Alliance wants stronger truck driver drug testing

By now, nearly everyone in America knows that the nation is struggling against a dangerous opioid crisis. Anyone you encounter might be using opioids, but to think that some truck drivers also use these powerful narcotics is even more frightening. Unfortunately, many truck drivers do use and perhaps abuse drugs, which means they might be impaired behind the wheel.

Is it wise to call an attorney right after a truck accident?

Any car accidents are frightening, disorienting experiences, especially those that involve large commercial trucks. Experiencing a truck accident is rarely something that leaves a victim in a calm, rational state of mind. This state of confusion can make it difficult for a victim to know how to respond to the accident in the moment. Victims who do not respond properly may miss collecting important evidence that could prove crucial to a future injury claim, or may accidentally assume liability for some or all of the damages.

How has the law addressed truck driver fatigue in Illinois?

Like you, truck drivers need a steady income so that they may provide for their families. While operating a tractor-trailer or other commercial vehicle enables truckers to do that, the work is exhausting. Further, the more truckers drive, the better they are paid. This is a powerful motivator to drive for as many hours as possible.

If it's dangerous for truckers, it's probably dangerous for you

We discuss the dangers of trucking quite often in our blog because it continues to be an important topic for all of Illinois. In the course of your day, you will probably find yourself driving near these massive vehicles one or more times.

Tips truck drivers can use to avoid accidents

With such large, heavy vehicles under their control, it's imperative that truck drivers take the proper steps to protect those around them. An accident that doesn't even hurt a truck driver could very easily kill or injure someone in a vastly smaller passenger vehicle.

Do trucking logs really help?

The idea behind trucking logs makes sense. The log shows when the driver was at work. It can then be used to ensure that he or she follows all of the specific trucking regulations about hours on the road, mandatory breaks, time spent sleeping and maximum work hours in a week.
