Arlington Heights Truck Accident Lawyers

Illinois Semi Truck Accident Attorneys

Attorneys in Cook County Serving Victims of Semi-Truck and Tractor Trailer Crashes

In the moments immediately following a crash involving a tractor-trailer or other commercial truck, you are likely to seek treatment for any injuries you may have suffered. At the very same time, the trucking company may already be looking for ways to escape liability-even if the truck driver was at fault for the accident. Regardless of the truth, lawyers and company spokespeople will try to spin the situation so that it appears that you or others were to blame.

Transport carriers and truck drivers are often able to avoid financial responsibility for such accidents because victims are too intimidated to fight back. At Newland & Newland, LLP, our experienced truck accident lawyers are not afraid of trucking companies or their insurers. We are ready and willing to help you pursue the full compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Skilled Representation for Truck Crashes in Schaumburg and Buffalo Grove

In many ways, the trucking industry represents the lifeblood of the American economy. Each year, some 3.5 million truck drivers move 10.4 billion tons of freight, burning more than 38 billion gallons of diesel fuel. A semi-truck pulling a standard trailer forms a unit that can measure up to 70 feet in length and can weigh up to 40 tons when fully loaded. Specially-certified oversized trucks may be even larger and heavier. The sheer size and weight of commercial trucks make them extremely dangerous when they are involved in an accident. The slightest malfunction or a single moment of inattention could have devastating and tragic results. In most cases, however, it is not the truck driver who suffers the most serious injuries; it is the drivers and passengers in other vehicles on the road.
