Tow Truck Driver Sued for Chicago Truck Accident

The family of George F Harris, 40, is suing a tow truck driver and the truck company for his wrongful death. The Hazel Crest resident died on July 10 after the tow truck driven by trucker Nicolas Nieves struck him. The towing company is E & R Towing & Garage Inc.

Three other vehicles were involved in the deadly Chicago truck accident. Police say that the tow truck rear-ended a van. Nieves was cited for driving too fast for conditions, failing to reduce the speed of his vehicle, careless operation of his truck, speeding, and failure to keep a proper lookout.

Six people got hurt in the Dan Ryan accident.

Tow Truck Accidents
Two truck crashes can cause serious injuries. In addition to collisions with other vehicles and pedestrians, people can get hurt if the vehicle that a tow truck is towing is not completely secured and it slips off, landing on the road or on other vehicles.

Two trucks are large-sized vehicles and the impact of getting hit by one of these trucks can be catastrophic.

Regardless of the size of the truck that caused your injury, Chicago truck crashes—especially those involving a professional truck driver—are not the kind of case you want to handle on your own.

You need a Chicago personal injury lawyer who knows how to pursue recovery against a professional trucking company so that you receive all of the compensation that you are owed.
