Preparing for a car accident claim can be as simple as providing police reports and medical records from the post-accident care you’ve received. It can also become quite complicated, depending on the circumstances of the accident and how difficult the insurance company has decided to be in defending its profits. Chicago car accident attorneys will be able to give you the best possible chance of receiving a settlement that comes close to making you whole financially.
Semi-trucks are so much bigger and heavier than passenger cars that the occupant of smaller vehicles are especially vulnerable if an accident occurs. Victims often suffer permanent injuries that impact them for the rest of their lives. The financial burdens that accompany truck accident injuries can easily soar to the hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars. Fortunately, accident victims may be able to sue the truck driver, the insurer, the trucking company, and others to recover compensation. 
If you were injured in a trucking accident in Chicago, Berwyn, Oak Lawn, Cicero, or a nearby community, call the injury attorneys at Lloyd Miller Law for a free consultation.

Big Truck Accident Verdict – But Not in Chicago

Big Truck Accident Verdict – But Not in Chicago

A federal court awarded $7 million last month to the family of a truck driver who suffered a wrongful in a two truck accident when his truck was struck by another truck in northern Arkansas. This is another case of a driver who was driving longer hours than mandated by the U.S. Department of Transportation rules allowed and was clearly fatigued as shown by the evidence. To exacerbate the accident, the offending driver had a bad driving record and inadequate experience. These factors lead to him crossing into the oncoming lane of traffic and colliding with the decedents truck.
