Truck Accidents


The improper operation of large trucks and tractor-trailers on Illinois roads is the cause of hundreds of catastrophic accidents and fatalities each year. When trucking regulations are ignored, these massive vehicles can cause immense damage. James P. LeFante will use his experience defending truck drivers from accident claims to aggressively fight for your rights.

Common causes of truck accidents on Illinois roads and highways include:

  • Truck driver negligence
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving while under the influence of intoxicating substances, including alcohol and narcotics
  • Failure to properly maintain a truck
  • Defective manufacturing, including brake defects and tire defects resulting in blowouts
  • Aggressive driving, including speeding
  • Roadway and construction zone defects
  • Poor roadway conditions, including slippery and icy roads

Commercial truck drivers require special training and licenses, and must adhere to special regulations. Unfortunately, some trucking companies ignore regulations that allow under-trained and unqualified drivers operating on our roads. Victims of trucking accidents are entitled to compensation for their injuries from all at-fault parties, which may include not only truck drivers, but also the trucking company that employs them, and trucking manufacturers for the development of defective products.
