Chicago Truck Accident Lawyers/Attorneys
Many people have driven when they are exhausted or push to make a long journey with as few stops as possible. Unfortunately, that is often common practice for truckers. But when they drive too many miles or ignore routine maintenance checks that need to be performed, the results can be deadly.
Accidents caused by trucks are often catastrophic or fatal, and the injured party can be left wondering what rights they have and how they can receive the compensation they need. When you contact Grazian & Volpe, we can provide the legal counsel you need at every step of the process.

Accidents Caused by Negligent Truckers and CDL Operators
Truck drivers and other individuals who need a commercial driver’s license (CDL) to operate large vehicles must follow numerous regulatory procedures that do not apply to regular sized automobiles. There are safety regulations that limit the number of hours and miles truckers can drive in a 24-hour period. There are safety checks that require routine maintenance, and there is a long list of information truckers are required to document.
As a result, when truckers cause accidents, there is a wealth of information that should be available, right down to the GPS coordinates stating exactly when and where the accident took place. However, because truckers are paid by the miles they drive, they often push the limits on the safety standards — driving too fast, too long or putting on too many miles.
When we represent individuals in truck accident cases, the first thing we do is get our hands on that information. Experienced Chicago truck accident lawyers know they need to subpoena that information quickly or it can disappear or be destroyed. We understand the importance of acting promptly when accident victims contact us, and we work efficiently to begin building a strong case against the trucker.
