With the onset of the holiday season comes more traffic – including large box trucks, tractor-trailers, and other trucks – on Chicago highways and roads. These vehicles are used by large retailers and shipping companies to make deliveries throughout the holiday season. With the increased number of individuals ordering products online, shipping services are utilized more and more for both store and residential deliveries.
With the increased presence of large trucks on Chicago roads throughout the holiday season comes the increased possibility of motor vehicle collisions involving these trucks. When a large truck collides with a passenger vehicle, the sheer impact can lead to significant property damages and personal injuries to the vehicle occupants.
If you have been injured in a holiday-season truck accident that was caused by a negligent truck driver, you may be able to assert an insurance claim – or file a lawsuit – against the responsible truck driver, trucking company, or shipping company. A Chicago car accident lawyer at Malman Law can review the facts of your case, explain your legal options, and help you pursue the monetary recovery you need. Give us a call today at (312) 629-0099 or contact us online to learn more about how we could assist you during your personal injury case.
