Victims of large commercial trucking accidents in Illinois need to know how these types of crashes differ from collisions that occur between two smaller vehicles. Watch this video, as a Collinsville truck accident attorney explains what you should know about crashes involving 18-wheelers.

When a passenger car and large semi truck collide, almost always the occupants in the smaller car suffer serious injuries, even fatal. Because of this, insurers for trucking companies know that hundreds of thousands of dollars are at stake, which is why they get an investigation team out to an accident site within hours. They are looking for any evidence that could limit their liability. Unfortunately, they often have a way of misplacing or destroying evidence such as log books and other information that could hurt their case. For this reason, you need to have an experienced Illinois truck accident lawyer on your side who can move quickly to preserve the evidence in your case.

Make sure you have a knowledgeable attorney in your corner who isn’t afraid to stand up to the insurance company. After a Madison and St. County semi truck accident, contact the Giacoletto Law Firm at 618-346-8841 for a free consultation or online at
