Illinois 18-Wheeler Accident Lawyers
When a truck accident occurs, there will almost always be a victim.
Large trucks are consistently involved in a higher proportion of fatal crashes than passenger vehicles for several reasons. Not only are commercial trucks significantly larger, they are more difficult to operate and are usually driven for substantially more miles than the average passenger vehicle. According to the NHTSA National Center for Statistics, Illinois averages 110+ fatalities from truck accidents every year.
