DuPage County Workers’ Comp attorney, workers’ comp injuriesA workplace is full of conditions that present risk of injury. While construction and other industries that require physical exertion are thought of as the riskiest for on-the-job injuries, workers in every field can fall victim.

truck accidents in illinois, wheaton personal injury lawyerHealth professionals recommend annual physicals for all individuals as a means to check and see if there are any issues which need addressing. The same is recommended for personal vehicles. To ensure safe transportation, all vehicles should be maintained regularly. When it comes to commerce, several modes of transportation traverse our roads and highways, and we expect them all to be roadworthy. Whether it be school buses to large tractor trailers, we all want to feel safe on the road.

Unfortunately, the vehicles that can cause the most devastating accidents are massive tractor trailers. Their sizes alone can cause irreparable damage when involved in an accident. In 2014, 3,744 fatal crashes involved a large truck, and the number of large trucks involved in injury crashes increased by 21 percent, from 73,000 to 88,000. Therefore, what would you say if you discovered that the reason a truck caused catastrophic injury in your particular case was because it was not maintained and was a ticking time bomb to cause harm?

If you were involved in an accident with a truck and suspect the cause to be improper maintenance, you may have a viable legal avenue to pursue. Involving an experienced personal injury attorney will enable you to weigh up your options which could lead to significant compensation for the injuries you suffered.
