Many trucking accidents occur on interstate highways and involve cars and trucks that originate from different locations or with businesses incorporated out of state. The location where the accident occurred may be far away from where the drivers of the vehicles actually reside and it can be a challenge to try your case in your own state of residence. Truck companies will try as hard as they can to have the case tried in the state that offers the most leniency, so it is important to have an advocate that is part of a larger network and has the ability to address your case regardless of where authorities determine the jurisdiction to be.
How Trucking Companies Attempt to Avoid Responsibility In Serious Accidents
From the moment of the accident, the trucking company that is responsible will attempt to find a way to dodge liability. If the company does not feel it has a case in your state, it may argue that the accident happened in another jurisdiction or attempt to have the case transferred to a court in the state in which the company is headquartered. Chicago Truck Injury Lawyers are fully aware of these tactics and are equipped to fight any attempts to have your case tried in a more conservative jurisdiction. In the event that the case must be tried outside of Illinois, our firm has access to experienced attorneys across the country that are all able to challenge the ruthless tactics of big trucking companies.

Don’t Wait For A Settlement Offer From The Truck Insurance Company For Your Injury Claim
The truck company that is responsible for your injuries is already building their defense even as you are reading this. Injury cases take time to move from an initial consultation to investigation, negotiation and then trial. The longer you wait to speak with a truck injury attorney, the more likely you are to forget vital details about the incident that could win your case.

You have the right to seek representation at any time following an accident so long as you do not exceed the statute of limitations for your state, which varies depending on where you reside.
