After an accident, you may have the question - is a tire blowout an at-fault accident? Depending on the cause of the blowout, you may be able to prove that the other driver, a maintenance provider, manufacturer, or seller was at fault for your accident. You may be able to claim compensation for your damages from the person who was at fault.
Can you sue a drunk driver after an accident? If the fact that the driver was impaired caused the accident, then you can sue the drunk driver. Drunk driving accidents can have life-changing consequences, often resulting in serious injuries or even fatalities. Such events can abruptly halt your life as you know it. However, if you were not the one driving under the influence, you shouldn't have to pay for the mistake. Luckily, the law allows you to claim compensation if a drunk driver hits you.
After suffering injuries in a car accident, seek medical attention without delay. This will enable you to undergo a thorough examination and receive treatment for physical injuries resulting from the accident. Seeking immediate medical care can also help in creating a detailed medical record documenting your injuries, which can be used to substantiate claims for compensation that you may wish to make later on.
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.

Truck Accidents: Another Wrongful Death Lawsuit

The Chicago and Cicero Truck Accident Lawyers at Grazian and Volpe are sorry to report another truck accident resulting in a death and serious injuries; spawning a lawsuit filed by the surviving spouse.   Her husband was killed when his pickup collided with a flatbed trailer being towed by a dump truck. The suit alleges that the flatbed trailer broke away from the dump truck and crossed into the path of the pickup, killing the man and seriously injuring his wife.

The suit alleges that the accident could have been avoided if the truck and trailer owner’s had properly maintained the trailer. The allegations in the lawsuit state that:

  • safety chains weren’t used to attach the trailer to the dump truck
  • the trailer’s rear wheels didn’t have working air brakes
  • there were no working lights on the trailer

Chicago is a major trucking hub and as Chicago and South Chicago Truck Accident Lawyers of over 25 years, Grazian and Volpe has handled hundreds of lawsuits where trucking companies have been found to ignore safety regulations and precautions.  We posted several articles in July and August detailing these regulations and precautions that should be observed. It is our hope that this information may help in the prevention of truck accidents.

This current lawsuit may be another tragic example of the tragedies that occur when trucking companies and their drivers ignore truck safety. If so, the Cicero and Chicago Truck Accidents Lawyers at Grazian and Volpe hope that justice is served and the family of the deceased compensated as much as possible for their injuries and loss.
