Accidents involving large trucks and 18-wheelers are particularly violent and dangerous, especially for occupants of smaller cars. If a passenger car and an 18-wheeler collide, the car occupants often fare far worse than the truck driver. The difference in size between passenger cars and large trucks means that occupants of cars often face serious injuries or even fatalities in an accident or collision involving a semi-truck.

Truck Accident Cases
There are a variety of reasons that large trucks and 18-wheelers get involved in accidents. Sometimes the truck driver makes a negligent error or is intoxicated. Other times, mechanical defects cause the truck to malfunction and crash or collide into other vehicles as a result, so even though the driver is driving safely, accidents still occur. Still other times, the truck driver’s employer is at fault for not exercising proper cautions for the safety and security of drivers and their trucks. Regardless of the reason for the accident, results can be catastrophic and even fatal for those involved.
Our firm handles a variety of trucking accident cases, including those that involve:
- Drunk Driving
- Mechanical Defects and Malfunctions
- Employer Negligence and Liability
- Truck Driver Error
- No-Zone Accidents
The large size of trucks in comparison to other vehicles on the road poses an inherent danger to all other drivers. Although most trucking companies take steps to screen employees and keep equipment in top working order, it only takes one negligent driver or faulty truck to cause a serious accident resulting in extensive damage, injuries, or death.
If you or someone you love has been hurt in an accident involving a large truck, you may be entitled to legal compensation. Contact the Kankakee truck accident lawyers of Spiros Law, P.C. at (815) 929-9292.
