Top Reason For a Truck Accident Lawsuit in Illinois: Negligence
Semi-truck accidents are not like other accidents. Illinois has reported having nearly 20,000 big truck crashes each year. According to the Illinois Department of Transportation’s reporting on big truck collisions, “The majority of the fatalities and non-fatal injuries that occurred in crashes involving large trucks were among occupants—drivers and passengers—of the other vehicle(s) involved in these crashes, not among occupants of the large trucks themselves.”
If you’ve been hit by a big rig, bus, or commercial vehicle in Illinois, an injury lawsuit may be necessary to protect yourself and your family. There’s a strong chance the crash was due to negligence on the part of the truck and / or trucking company.

Winning Compensation With A Truck Crash Lawyer
When you’ve been involved in a collision with an 18-wheeler in Illinois, be aware that trucking companies and their insurers may show up at the scene of the crash or soon after. Many attempt to get eyewitness accounts that are misleading. Their job is to save money by trying to prove that you were at least 50 percent at fault.
That’s because Illinois operates on the legal insurance principles of “modified comparative negligence.” If they can get you to admit you were significantly at fault for the collision, then you may miss out on collecting the damages you deserve.
