Trucking Accidents

The sheer size and weight of a truck make trucking accidents very dangerous. Serious injuries or death can result from an accident that involves a truck. If you or a loved one has suffered serious injury or death as the result of a trucking accident, you may be eligible for compensation. Eckert Law Group, LLC, has a successful track record of helping clients to recover damages.

Causes Of Truck Accidents

If you are the victim of a truck accident, there will most likely be an investigation into your case to determine what caused the accident. The most common types of causes that our personal injury attorneys have seen include:

  • Alcohol and drug use
  • Brake problems
  • Distracted driving
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Fatigue
  • Heavy traffic
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Roadway problems
  • Traveling too fast for weather conditions

Distracted driving is a huge contributing factor to many truck crashes, and in Illinois, there is a ban on texting and using a hand-held mobile device while operating a vehicle.
