Fighting for Your Rights after an Auto Accident in the Chicago Area
A car accident is one of the most traumatic experiences you can go through, and the aftermath can be a nightmare. Your car is either damaged or totaled and will require a significant amount of money in order to repair or replace the vehicle. If you have sustained injuries, your medical bills are most likely beginning to pile up. Serious injuries may be preventing you from working and therefore reducing your stream of income. And if your injuries are severe enough, you may not be able to resume the same exact work in the future, which could affect your earnings and, ultimately, your happiness and quality of life.
These are only a few of the concerns that are plaguing you now. All of these consequences should be factored in when determining how much compensation you should receive in order to cover the full extent of your damages. You can and should receive financial compensation for emotional as well as physical damages. An experienced personal injury attorney will dissect your case and hold the other party accountable for any and all damages that you have suffered in addition to any suffering you foresee in the future. Mr. Wittmeyer can help you to build a strong case against the wrongdoer after your car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, or other traffic accident.
Significant Results for Your Significant Injuries after a Truck Accident
If you have been injured in an accident with a large commercial semi truck, you are most likely in a lot of pain and facing significant medical bills. After all, a fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh over 125,000 lbs. When that kind of weight comes crashing into you, it can cause significant injuries or even death. If you have been lucky enough to survive an accident with a truck, you most likely have a long, uphill battle ahead of you, but we are here to help.
Many people forget that these are commercially operated vehicles. This means that those companies have a lot of money and will do anything that they can to pay out as little as possible in compensation. They will aggressively fight your claim that their driver or their equipment was at fault, which is why you need a personal injury attorney who will be equally as aggressive in fighting for your rights and insisting that they pay you for the damages they have caused you. Don’t let them fool you into thinking that they will look out for you and that you don’t need legal representation. Mr. Wittmeyer has no other agenda but yours. He will listen to your story and will help you determine where to go from here.
Many things can go wrong when it comes to commercially operated tractor-trailers, leading to your serious injury. Truck drivers are required to go through extensive training and meet rigorous qualifications in order to legally operate such massive vehicles. Sometimes, however, trucking companies cut corners and allow unsafe and irresponsible drivers on the roads. In addition to poor and improper training, impairment from drug and alcohol use and fatigue are also frequent issues among truck drivers. Improper vehicle maintenance is also a common problem with commercial trucks. All of these factors put you and everyone else on the road at risk.
If you have lost someone close to your heart because of a truck accident, it is also important that you talk to a personal injury attorney to see if you have a wrongful death case. You need an attorney who is versed in the regulations that govern commercial motor vehicle operation so that you will be aggressively represented against the trucking companies and their insurance companies. Our law firm has successfully represented many clients in cases against trucking companies and their drivers over the past 30 years.
