Truck Accidents

Chicago Truck Accident Attorneys

Semitrucks, delivery trucks and other large commercial vehicles are simply so large and so heavy that accidents involving these vehicles inflict serious injuries upon those involved. These injured people deserve compensation, which can be very difficult to obtain from negligent trucking companies and their insurance companies.

At James D. Montgomery & Associates, Ltd., we handle truck accident cases on behalf of injured people in Chicago, Cook County and throughout Illinois. The firm has achieved multiple settlements and verdicts amounting to millions of dollars for clients injured in trucking accidents in this area. For example, in 2013, attorneys James D. Montgomery, Sr. and John K. Kennedy achieved a $7.365 million verdict on behalf of a client whose husband was killed in a collision with a tow truck.

Unraveling Complex Semi Truck and Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Our Chicago truck accident lawyers are determined to succeed for every client who comes to us. In order to maximize the compensation our clients receive, we engage in thorough accident investigations, with the help of experts in the field of accident reconstruction. We seek to establish the true cause of the truck accident, which could be a number of things, such as:

  • Driver fatigue and the possible falsification of logbooks, in which drivers are required to record the number of hours driven
  • Speeding
  • Improper truck maintenance
  • Improperly loaded or secured cargo
  • Inadequate driver training
  • Negligent hiring by the trucking company
  • Locating and coordinating insurance coverages of multiple companies

Personal injury and wrongful death claims stemming from truck crashes frequently require litigation against multiple parties: the driver, the trucking company, a repair shop and so forth. The injured party's ability to obtain compensation hinges on his or her attorney's ability to make sense of all these parts to present a powerful case. Our team has the proven ability to do so, and we will work tirelessly to achieve a positive outcome in your case.
