There are many types of car accident injuries that victims suffer. These injuries range in severity, and heavily influence the value of a car accident claim. More severe injuries can increase a victim’s losses, and have a long-term effect on his or her life. It’s important to be aware of the impact of car accident injuries and what kind of compensation those injuries qualify for when starting a claim. 
Car accident settlement amounts depend on factors such as the insurance coverage held by the motorists involved, liability, and the severity of the injuries and property damage. However, other factors may also play a role. For example, punitive damages may be calculated in a settlement if the other party was acting recklessly and in conscious disregard to others.
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?!?

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.
