Our truck accident lawyers have helped many accident victims just like you obtain the justice and compensation they deserved in cases involving the following factors:

Truck Accidents Pose More Serious Dangers

Accident victims can face many serious difficulties after a truck crash, and the legal cases can quickly become complex. Truck accident cases are different from other types of vehicle crashes because:

  • Large vehicles can cause more damage to passenger vehicles. Typically, commercial trucks are much larger and heavier than the other vehicles on the road, and the path of destruction carved by a large truck can be significant. Some car safety features cannot protect occupants or absorb the impact of such a large vehicle, exposing those who share the road to serious dangers.
  • Occupants in passenger vehicles sustain more serious injuries compared to truck drivers. On average, research tells us that occupants of smaller vehicles are injured and killed more often in large truck crashes. After serious injuries from these crashes, victims often face long and painful recoveries. They can be forced to miss a good deal of work or be unable to work again. Additionally, the physical and emotional pain that can accompany these injuries may require rigorous and ongoing medical treatment. Thus, the stakes in these cases are high for victims and their families.
  • Professional drivers are involved. Commercial trucks, such as semi-truck trailers, are operated by professional drivers. They are one part of a larger system, which can include trucking, insurance, and logistics companies. As a whole, these companies want to protect their bottom line at all costs. Often, this means that truck accident cases can become very technical with  many components, like federal regulations, insurance guidelines, mechanical systems, and more.

Testimonials of Shannon Law Group of Chicagoland

Patrick Cummings and Shannon Law Group represented our daughter in an employment contract dispute. Our daughter was so frustrated, and Patrick immediately reassured her that the law was on her side despite what her employer told her. Patrick was able to get her back pay that added up to more than 10% of her annual salary. He did this professionally, respectfully and quickly. In a way that allowed her to continue in a job she loves with out creating unnecessary tension. It is fortunate that Patrick can practice in Wisconsin. We are very grateful Pat was able to help our daughter.

I was involved in a head on collision with a wrong way driver. My car was totaled and my life was saved by safety restraints. Much to my surprise, my insurance company failed to properly represent me and I engaged Joe Shannon's services to recover my losses. Joe resolved the matter in a quick and cost effective manner. I have since referred a number of other individuals to the practice and they have all had very positive experiences and outcomes with Joe's firm. Joe is also very active in supporting the local community. I would recommend him without hesitation.
