Truck Regulation Violations
Did You Suffer A Serious Injury?
Crashes involving trucks typically have the most devastating consequences due to the size of the vehicle and the weight of the cargo it's carrying. For that reason, truck drivers and trucking companies are required to adhere to additional guidelines and procedures as compared to everyday automobile drivers. Unfortunately, manufacturers, drivers and trucking companies violate these rules in an attempt to cut costs and maximize profits. Whether these decisions are intentional or inadvertent, it puts the safety and lives of everyone else on the road at risk. Our attorneys are familiar with these regulations and how to investigate and uncover whether they were violated.
If you were seriously injured in a truck accident, you may be able to file a lawsuit to recover the compensation you need to cover any medical bills or other damages you have incurred. Our Chicago truck accident lawyers at Power Rogers & Smith have fought for the rights of injured victims for decades, and are committed to providing each new client we take on with the knowledgeable and passionate representation they require.
