Illinois Corporate Responsibility Lawyers
Aurora Truck Accident Injury Lawyers
The majority of semi-trucks on the road are owned by commercial trucking companies who have a responsibility to ensure that their equipment and their drivers meet state and federal laws and regulations. Other motorists who share the road with semi-trucks and tractor-trailers are put at risk when trucking companies knowingly or negligently ignore potential risks or evidence of aggressive driving.
If an accident occurs involving a semi-truck, and the injuries are significant, it is critical to recover enough compensation to pay for medical bills, lost wages and other expenses. At the law firm of Woodruff Johnson & Palermo, our firm works hard to hold trucking companies accountable for injuries that were caused by their negligence or misconduct. We will investigate your accident and build a case to prove corporate responsibility.
Illinois Corporate Responsibility Attorneys
In Illinois, the minimum amount of liability insurance that is required to drive a vehicle is $25,000. If you are in an accident with somebody who only has the minimum amount of insurance or who has no insurance at all, the full extent of damages that an attorney may be able to collect is $25,000. In cases involving accident and injuries , that does not begin to scratch the surface of the necessary expenses.
Trucking companies and other employers, however, typically have much greater coverage. When a trucking company is responsible for your accident and injuries due to negligence, corporate responsibility can help to provide you with the full amount of compensation that you deserve.
