Fatal Truck Accidents
Chicago Fatal Truck Accident Lawyers
In a typical year, more than 90 people are killed in tractor-trailer crashes on Illinois roads. The vast majority of these accidents are preventable, the result of negligence on the part of truck drivers, auto drivers, trucking companies and/or manufacturers. If you have lost a loved one in a fatal truck accident, our attorneys can help.
Since 1955, Anesi Ozmon has protected the rights of accident victims and their families. We have recovered fair compensation, often record-setting verdicts and settlements, for thousands of clients and will use the same resources, knowledge and experience to fight for maximum compensation in your fatal truck accident case.
Who Is Accountable for Your Loved One’s Fatal Truck Crash?
Even when it is clear that a specific driver’s negligence caused your loved one’s fatal truck crash, there may still be complicated liability issues. For example, a truck driver’s choice to speed or circumvent hours-of-service regulations may be attributable to a trucking company’s compensation structure. In that case, the truck driver and the trucking company may both be parties to your wrongful death suit.
Other potential liable parties include the manufacturer of a defective truck part, the city for improper road design or maintenance, or other drivers involved in a multi-vehicle crash.
Representing the Families of Truckers
In addition to representing the families of drivers and passengers in wrongful death lawsuits, we also represent the families of truckers killed in fatal trucking accidents in Cook County and throughout Illinois.
Depending on the nature of the accident, it may be possible to bring both a workers’ compensation survivor claim and a wrongful death claim. We have extensive experience in both areas of law.
