Truck accidents can be some of the most complex and devastating motor vehicle accidents. Federally regulated trucking companies may compromise safety in order to stay competitive. This leads to serious injuries to victims who are hit by large, heavy semi trucks or tractor-trailers.
Illinois trucking accident lawyer James P. Ginzkey has the legal experience and resources necessary to hold negligent drivers and their trucking companies liable for any life-changing accidents they may have caused to victims and their families.
Determining Liabilities Is Complex, Consult an Experienced Lawyer
As a victim in a personal injury accident involving a truck driver, you could face a multitude of involved parties, including not only the driver but also the shipping companies, the driver’s employer and others who may be liable.

The truck accident attorneys in Bloomington at Ginzkey Law Office work closely with experts in accident reconstruction, vehicle engineering and Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) to determine the cause of a crash, who is responsible, and why.
They carefully examine legal relationships between contractor drivers, their employers and the insurance carriers, while reviewing driver and shipping logs, vehicle maintenance records, and drug test results for federal or state law violations.
