Tractor Trailer Accident

When Should You Contact a Truck Collision Lawyer in Chicago?

Tractor Trailer Accidents

Most of the time, drivers of smaller vehicles share the road with larger semi tractor trailers. There are risks that come with sharing the road with these types of vehicles and most drivers take caution when driving. Normally, that uneasy feeling in your stomach passes when you pass the semi. But your accident did not occur on one of these “normal days” and it changed your life forever. When you are considering filing a lawsuit, a Chicago truck accident lawyer at Kurasch & Klein can help.


Who Determines Fault in a Semi Accident?

The police reports and eye witness accounts help the authorities and your insurance carrier determine who was at fault in your accident. If you have been injured, but are not sure what compensation you may be entitled to, contact Kurasch & Klein to assess your case.

Contacting an Experienced Injury Attorney

Semi tractor trailers can cause a lot of damage, both mental and physical. Discuss your situation with a truck accident lawyer in Chicago if:

  • You or an involved party was injured
  • The driver of the semi truck was handling the vehicle recklessly
  • You are having trouble seeing compensation from your insurance carrier
  • Your insurance carrier is acting in bad faith or undervaluing the damages
  • When you are worried about how you are going to keep up with bills after missing work because of your injuries
  • You have been fired because you can no longer perform your duties

Any of these reasons warrant a closer look at a lawsuit with Kurasch & Klein. Our Chicago lawyers are here to help after a truck accident, and can help you sort through the details and assess your case immediately. We will be here with you, from start until finish, to help you fight for justice.

What Should I Do After an 18-Wheeler Crash?

When you are involved in a collision with a large truck:

Tractor Trailer Accident
  • Move to the side of the road. Most accidents involving large trucks happen on a highway or freeway. If possible, move as quickly as you can to avoid further damage to yourself and vehicle.
  • Assess for injuries. Unfortunately, because of their size, semi trucks have the potential to cause a greater amount of damage than a smaller car.
  • Call the police, file a report and see a doctor to get your injuries examined. Internal damages are almost impossible to identify without seeing a doctor. Let your insurance carrier know about the accident.

When all of that is completed, contact Kurasch & Klein, your local Chicago trucking accident attorney.
