Truck Driver Fatigue
Many commercial trucking companies overwork their interstate truck drivers — at their own legal peril. Truck drivers should only be working a certain number of hours per week or month, to avoid the kind of fatigue that would lead to disastrous accidents and serious injuries to motorists on busy Illinois highways.
Major trucking accidents can also be caused by distracted and drunk driving by operators of 18-wheelers and semitractor-trailers; inclement weather and hazardous roads that often go unheeded; shifting loads; insufficiently trained drivers; and vehicles that lack maintenance and regular repairs.
If you were driving a car, riding a motorcycle or using a bicycle when a trucking accident happened — if you were seriously hurt in an accident, or a loved one sustained fatal injuries and wrongful death — one DuPage County personal injury law firm is on your side.
The Schramm Law Group aggressively advocates for the rights of injured motorists whose lives are jeopardized by negligent owners and operators of commercial trucking concerns in our state and nationwide. Attorney Adam E. Schramm established our law office years ago so that injured people in your position could pursue justice in courts of law if necessary.
Was Your Life Derailed, Or A Relative’s Life Ended, In A Trucking Accident? We Can Help
Because of the dramatic difference in size and weight between commercial vehicles and conventional cars and trucks, trucking accidents typically cause catastrophic injuries such as brain injury and spinal cord damage, paralysis, coma, broken bones, amputation, and permanent scarring and disfigurement. Adam Schramm welcomes the opportunity to negotiate with, and litigate against, insurers for truckers before judges and juries.
Our law firm’s primary objective is to win maximum financial compensation that recovers all of your accident aftermath’s expenses such as lost income, medical bills and the cost of replacing a motor vehicle. Adam Schramm works hard to obtain these damages that could return your life to normal.
You owe no legal fees unless we win your case, and your initial consultation is free. Call the Schramm Law Group today at 630-592-4492 or stay online to reach us by email. Home and hospital visits are available to those whose injuries prevent them from traveling.
