Truck accidents: Injuries result from Illinois collision

Injuries resulting from a vehicle accident can often prove burdensome for the injured parties. Truck accidents are often the causes of serious injuries as large vehicles can cause considerable damage. If an individual has been injured as a result of such a crash, that party could likely face medical costs, time away from work and ongoing pain. Luckily, there are options for seeking compensation for such damages.

Truck accidents: Multiple injuries result from Illinois collision

When a vehicle does not stop at a red light, there is a high chance that an accident will occur. Intersections can be difficult to safely maneuver, and if all drivers are not paying attention, truck accidents or other collisions could easily occur. These accidents can at times be difficult about which to draw conclusions, and investigations are exceedingly important in order to determine who may have been at fault.

Truck accidents: Pedestrians killed after being hit by semi

The loss of any life in an accident is a tragedy that can have effects for years to come. When an incident involves the deaths of children, the situation can seem almost unfathomable. Truck accidents can often lead to such devastating outcomes, and if the crash also involves pedestrians, it is likely that the results will lead to emotional struggles and possibly legal action.

Truck accidents: Three vehicles involved in Illinois crash

When a driver fails to see a vehicle that is in front of him or her, there is a high chance that an accident will occur. Some vehicles are able to apply the brakes in time for the impact to be lessened, but some crashes can be quite severe. Truck accidents that take place due to a driver colliding with the rear of another vehicle can cause serious injuries and perhaps involve multiple vehicles.

Truck accidents: Illinois student hit, killed crossing street

After an accident in which a person has been killed, many people may wish to express their grief and sympathy for the family. This type of reaction is not uncommon, and various other reactions may also be considered commonplace and acceptable. Because truck accidents can often lead to fatalities, civil lawsuits are also not rare outcomes of such incidents if families and loved ones wish to seek restitution.

Illinois hit-and-run truck accidents can cause serious injuries

Identifying information on a vehicle can become useful when it is suspected to have been involved in a hit and run accident. When a hit-and-run involves a tractor-trailer and a bicyclist, it may be vital to find the truck involved in order for appropriate legal proceedings to be carried out. Truck accidents can cause serious injuries, and a driver that leaves the scene of an accident could face criminal charges, among other legal issues.

Truck accidents can be devastating, but action is possible

A few moments is all it takes for a catastrophic accident to occur in Illinois. Truck accidents in particular can be especially devastating when smaller passenger vehicles are involved. Unfortunately, common causes of accidents with 18-wheelers can include fatigued or negligent drivers.

Truck accidents: Driver killed when train hits truck in Illinois

Indicators at railroad crossings can play a pivotal role in ensuring that drivers are aware when a train is coming. In some areas, these crossings may not be guarded, which could prove dangerous for drivers. Though truck accidents involving trains are not as common as accidents with other vehicles, if a truck driver is crossing at an unguarded railroad intersection, such an accident could occur.

Truck accidents with pedestrians not common, but dangerous

Accidents involving 18-wheelers and smaller passenger vehicles rarely have a good outcome for those riding in the smaller vehicle. When pedestrians are somehow involved in truck accidents, the potential for catastrophe is obvious. Without any of the protections afforded to those in a car -- such as seatbelts, airbags and the frame of the vehicle -- most pedestrians are left wholly unprotected.

Truck accidents: Bicyclist injured after being struck in Illinois

Many individuals know that even the most skilled truck drivers could potentially be involved in a serious accident. These vehicles can be much more difficult to navigate than smaller automobiles, and without the proper training and license, the likelihood of truck accidents taking place could increase. In such a situation, individuals who are involved in such a wreck could become seriously injured and need medical attention.
