Truck Accident Attorneys in Chicago
Cook County and Lake County Lawyers for Trucking Accident Injuries
Every year, large trucks carry billions of tons of freight across the roads of the United States as part of an industry that grosses more than $600 billion annually. Manufacturers and distributors of food, clothing, and innumerable other consumer goods rely on trucks to get their products to store shelves across the country. As a major transportation hub, the greater Chicago area sees thousands of trucks traverse area roadways every single day.
Unfortunately, each year, tens of thousands of people sustain injuries in large truck accidents. Due to the size and momentum of such vehicles, these accidents often result in severe injury or death. At Pullano Law Offices, we know how devastating truck accidents can be and are committed to helping victims and their families pursue full justice and obtain maximum compensation for their injuries.
With more than 35 years of combined personal injury experience, our attorneys understand truck accident investigations present unique challenges that do not apply in other traffic accidents. For example, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations require truck drivers to maintain driving logs and require regular inspections of the trucks. However, logs and inspection reports only need to be maintained for a certain amount of time. Failure to timely preserve and obtain this type of information can be detrimental to your rights. As a result, you need an experienced attorney that knows how to fully protect your rights while seeking justice on your behalf.
Our record in trucking accidents speaks for itself. We have obtained record-breaking results for victims of truck accidents due to our tenacious work ethic and an unwavering dedication to uncompromised justice. We will timely act to preserve and obtain any and all logs, driver safety records, driver qualification files and materials utilized to train the defendant driver in pursuit of justice. We pledge to bring that same tenacity that has resulted in numerous record-breaking verdicts and settlements to your case, as well.

Semi-trucks are very large, potentially dangerous vehicles, often measuring in excess of 70 feet long and weighing up to 40 tons. Accidents involving large trucks may be the result of such factors as:
- Fatigued or distracted driving;
- Reckless driving and excessive speed;
- Poor driver training programs;
- Insufficient safety protocols or lack of compliance;
- Obsolete or poorly maintained parts and equipment;
- Unreasonable deadlines leading to unsafe operation of the truck; and
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
