Here is some helpful information, as well as answers to our most frequently asked questions.


Who will be sued in the event of a truck accident?

In the event of a truck accident, it can be difficult to discover all of the responsible parties unless you have experience in personal injury law. An Illinois personal injury attorney with experience in trucking negligence will be able to help you identify those responsible. Generally, a lawsuit stemming from a trucking accident may include:

    • the driver

    • the owner of the truck/tractor

    • the owner of the freight/cargo

    • the owner of the trailer

    • the employer of the driver

    • the trucking company employing the driver

    • the truck manufacturer and

    • even the company identified on the trailer of the truck.

What kind of recovery can be made?

Truck accidents can inflict untold catastrophe upon the life of an individual and his or her family. In the event of a truck accident, a personal injury attorney will be able to help victims recover for:

    • Pain and suffering

    • Emotional distress

    • Loss of earnings

    • Loss of earning capacity

    • Medical bills

    • Future medical bills

    • Disability

In the event that a truck accident takes the life of an individual, their family may pursue recovery for things like:

    • Loss of care

    • Loss of support

An experienced Illinois truck accident attorney will know how to navigate the often confusing laws governing the aftermath of a serious truck accident.

Why should I hire an attorney?

Although truck accident cases can be considered a category of personal injury law, they are far more complex and more aggressively defended by insurance defense lawyers. This is because of the severity of injuries in truck accidents and because commercial truck drivers and commercial trucking companies carry large insurance policies. It is of the utmost importance to hire an Illinois truck accident attorney as soon as possible after your accident in order to protect your rights and to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Another important reason to hire an Illinois trucking negligence attorney is to ensure that all potential liability is assessed to the appropriate defendants. An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to research and discover issues like whether the truck driver kept an adequate log of his driving hours and whether he drove more hours than he was allowed under trucking regulations.

What type of appointments are being offered?

We are currently offering convenient case evaluations via phone or web.

What steps should I take to protect my rights?

    1. Call the police
    2. Contact your insurance company to report the accident
    3. Don’t speak to insurance companies for the defendant
    4. Don’t talk to the defendant’s insurance claims adjuster
    5. Do not sign anything
    6. See a doctor
    7. Take photographs of any and all damage before repairs, before selling your car, or before destroying your car as applicable
    8. Take photographs of injuries
    9. File your police report
    10. Contact Zayed Law Offices.

What are common causes of truck accidents?

There are numerous causes of trucking accidents, some of which are:

    • Aggressive driving

    • Time sensitive schedules that push truck drivers beyond reasonable work expectations

    • Malfunctioning tires, brakes and lights

    • Failing to inspect tires, brakes and lights

    • Driver fatigue

    • Speeding

    • Cell phone usage

    • Failure to use or install blind spot mirrors

    • Drunk driving

What if I can’t afford to hire an attorney?

Our services are offered on a “contingency fee” basis, which means that our fees for representing you will be deducted from the final personal injury settlement in your case—or from the damages awarded after a favorable verdict, in the event that your case makes it all the way to court trial. If you aren’t awarded a favorable outcome, then the firm would not collect a fee.
