Trying to recover full and fair compensation for injuries or the death of a loved one after a truck accident means you are facing an uphill battle. Large local, regional and national trucking companies are often covered by leading insurance companies and have an army of experienced lawyers protecting them from excessive damages. They know that offering a low, fast settlement is a certain way to protect themselves from full liability.

If you were injured or lost a family member in a truck or commercial vehicle accident in the Greater Chicago metropolitan area or Northern Illinois, your first call should be to an experienced truck accident lawyer at Foote, Mielke, Chavez & O'Neil, LLC.

What Makes Truck Accidents Unique?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) (under the direction of the Department of Transportation) governs a wide range of safety and operational regulations, which truck companies and commercial truck drivers must adhere to. Understanding how violations of the FMCSA regulations affect the evidence and extent of financial damages in a truck accident case is critical to preparing a successful case for a settlement or trial. Truck companies often have their own investigators on the scene of truck wrecks within minutes of an accident in the Greater Chicago area. We make sure that evidence is protected and turned over to our firm for a thorough investigation of the facts in your favor.
