Chicago Truck Accident Lawyers
Representing Victims of Trucking Accidents throughout Illinois
Large commercial trucks often travel on the highways and roadways in and around Chicago and the state of Illinois as they move goods throughout the country. With so many trucks sharing the roads with other vehicles, and given the unique challenges of operating a large commercial truck, trucking accidents are bound to happen. In fact, according to the Department of Transportation, in 2011 alone, there were 273,000 trucking accidents.
Given the size of large commercial trucks, trucking accidents often involve serious injuries, death, and significant damages. The Chicago truck accident attorneys at Cary J. Wintroub & Associates are dedicated to protecting the victims of motor vehicle accidents, including truck accidents, auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, and bus accidents. Because we focus on representing the victims of truck accidents and other serious traffic collisions, we have the knowledge and experience necessary to handle the complex legal issues that come into play with trucking accident lawsuits.
