Chicago Truck Crash Law Firm: Recent US Large Truck Accidents Claim Lives

Injuries sustained in an Illinois large truck crash can be catastrophically life changing. This is why you need an experienced Chicago truck accident law firm protecting your right to financial recovery from all liable parties.

Just this week in the US, several large truck crashes caused serious injuries and deaths, including:

• A 19-year-old college student died on Tuesday after she was struck by a garbage truck near campus. Kaeli Sarah Kramer was pronounced dead at the crash site. A fellow classmate, Aresh Saquib, was hospitalized for his injuries. The driver of the garbage truck, Guillermo Vargas, was treated for emotional distress at the same hospital before being released.

• Yesterday, at least one person died in a head-on crash between a tractor-trailer and a car. The truck cab caught fire but the trucker was able to escape. The car involved in the deadly traffic crash with the large truck was crushed.

• On Wednesday morning, a 77-year-old woman sustained fatal injuries when she drove into the path of a dump truck that was pulling a trailer. The truck hit the driver-side door of the vehicle carrying Helen Irene Hawley before spinning out and jackknifing. Hawley died yesterday.

It is important that you do not try to settle your truck accident case with the other party’s insurer without speaking to an Illinois truck crash law firm first. There is so much involved when determining liability and there also may be more than one party that can be held liable for personal injury or wrongful death.

Injuries from a catastrophic truck accident may take years to recover from and will likely cost more than you think. Your Chicago truck accident lawyer will know how to make sure that you are compensated enough so that you have what you need to get better and more forward with your life.
