If you have sustained injuries causing long-term or permanent disability, you already know your life has changed dramatically and you may never return to the normalcy you are used to. This kind of life-altering experience warrants further compensation, so it’s important to consult with a Chicago truck accident attorney that will help you understand what exactly you are entitled to.

These long-term or permanent effects typically mean surgeries, more appointments, physical therapy, counseling, extensive and ongoing scans to track healing progress, and much more. In these cases your settlement may need to include ongoing benefits of some kind.

Determining Truck Accident Fault and Cause

One of the first things your attorney will do is establish fault for the accident, and subsequently, what caused it. Shea Law Group has represented many truck accident victims in the past and has the expertise to properly navigate your case for a win.

Studies show the most common causes of trucking accidents involve driver fatigue, drugs, speeding, and faulty truck parts. No matter what caused your particular truck accident, our lawyers can talk with you about your case and assess potential outcomes to determine how much you can potentially be awarded.
