Types of Truck Accident Lawsuits
One of the most unfair match-ups on Chicago roads is between a large truck
and a car. The injuries that are sustained as a result of truck accidents
can be catastrophic. Injuries such as spinal cord damage, paralysis, burns,
broken bones and lacerations are common consequences of a truck accident.
There are various types of truck lawsuits that your attorney can initiate on your behalf. Three of the most common types include:
1. Product Liability - Some accidents occur through no fault of the driver. In these cases, the accidents are caused by a malfunction or defect in the components of the truck. In a product liability suit, a claim will be made against the manufacturer of the truck or its parts.
2. Negligence - In cases in which the actions of the driver caused the accident, a negligence claim will be filed against the truck driver. Some actions that contribute to driver negligence include:
- Overloading the truck
- Driver inexperience
- Failure to see other vehicles in the truck's blind spot
- Failure to obey the laws of the road (speeding, illegal lane changes, tail-gating etc.)
- Failure to stop at weigh stations
- Driving for long periods of time
All truck drivers must operate their large trucks on Chicago roads with
care. Drivers who are found to be negligent in accidents will be held liable.
3. Wrongful Death Suits - The most unfortunate type of lawsuit in a Chicago truck accident is a wrongful death suit. When a person dies as the result of a truck accident, a family can contact an attorney to file a wrongful death claim on behalf of the deceased party. Attorneys can seek compensation for economic damages, punitive damages and non-economic damages.
As a plaintiff in a Chicago truck accident lawsuit, you must be aware that it can take a significant amount of time to settle your case. Some cases can take months to reach an agreement, while other cases might take a few years. During this time, you can rest assured and know that the attorneys at The Doan Law Firm are working diligently on your behalf to reach a speedy settlement.
