Why Truck Accident Cases are Different

Truck accident cases are much more complex because so many parties are responsible for different aspects of a tractor-trailer’s journey on the road. Our seasoned attorneys will thoroughly investigate your accident to determine exactly what caused the crash and who should be held liable. This may include:

  • Hidden Defects or Malfunctions

    Truck owners and trucking companies are responsible for ensuring that the vehicle meets all of the safety regulations for large trucks. Regular maintenance, repair, and equipment checks are essential. When an owner or company fails to keep up with a reasonable safety schedule, a crash can easily result. Also, if a hidden defect exists in any of the truck’s parts or equipment, the item may fail at a crucial moment. This can cause a crash or make a crash worse. In this case, the manufacturer or distributor of the defective part may be held responsible.

  • Trucking Company Negligence

    Trucking companies have a long list of obligations. They include screening and testing drivers, tracking the hours drivers work every day and week to ensure drivers do not work too much, keeping equipment in good working order, and ensuring that loads are properly contained and secured for the trip. On any given truck, these tasks might each be performed by a different company – making it even more complicated to determine who is liable for the harm caused.

  • Negligently Maintained Roadways

    Not all U.S. roads are appropriate for trucks. Off the state and federal highways, truck routes must be carefully marked so that drivers do not become lost or stuck. The weight limits on bridges and the height of overpasses must be clearly labeled, and drivers must be aware of the height and weight of their own trucks in order to prevent an accident. Other hazards ─such as potholes, blind curves, inadequate signs at intersections, or construction site barriers set too narrowly ─ can also cause a truck crash.

  • Negligent Truck Drivers

    Many truck drivers take safety seriously and work hard to drive safely in all conditions. Not all truck drivers are this careful, though. Just a few moments of carelessness, sleepiness, distraction, inexperience, or intoxication can cause a crash.

  • Other Careless Drivers

    Many passenger car drivers don’t receive adequate education on how to drive safely around large tractor-trailers. When the driver of another car on the road does something dangerous, a nearby truck driver may be forced to take defensive maneuvers. Unfortunately, the very actions that are designed to prevent an accident can also cause one.

Whenever a truck accident happens, the natural first reaction is to blame the driver. However, a driver is not the only person responsible for truck safety on the road.

Our experienced truck accident attorneys and lawyers in Chicago understand the complex rules and regulations that govern truck safety, including the different rules for various truck classes, sizes, weights, and types of cargo. We will identify every liable party in your truck accident case and manage communication with the various insurance companies to pursue maximum compensation for you.

The Ryan Bruning Law Firm was very nice to work with. The paralegal Anissa was approachable and was always there to answer questions over the phone. If I left a voicemail my call was quickly answered the next day. Ryan was able to negotiate a fair settlement and he was able to explain the process in terms I could understand. I would suggest them to anyone that needs legal help. Great people to work with.
