Box Truck Collisions in Chicago

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for PFMstock6-129.jpgCollisions involving large vehicles such as box trucks can result in serious injuries. These vehicles are massive, meaning they can cause significant damage in a crash. Because truck drivers often work long hours, they are less able to make reasonable decisions behind the wheel.

In 2016, the Federal Motor Carrier Administration found that nearly 4,440 large trucks and buses were involved in deadly collisions. Even more victims are seriously injured in similar crashes. In some cases, surviving family members can contact a Chicago personal injury lawyer to protect their legal rights.
