Wheaton Truck Accident Lawyer

Competent and Assertive Representation From an Illinois Trucking Accident Attorney

Every year on highways throughout Illinois, there are thousands of truck accidents in the Chicago area. Because Chicago is a major metropolitan transportation hub of the Midwest, our expressways are crowded with inattentive, under-trained or even negligent truck drivers. Unfortunately, when a car is involved in a truck wreck with an 18-wheeler, the car driver and passengers nearly always suffer the worst of the injuries.

At Rice & Associates, Ltd, you have the benefit of knowing that an experienced personal injury attorney will be on your side. Our Wheaton, Illinois, law firm has been helping people recover compensation for personal injury and wrongful death claims resulting from trucking accidents for more than twenty-five years.

Attorney Patrick Rice is a former insurance defense attorney who knows the legal strategies that insured and self-insured trucking companies use in order to reduce their trucking accident liability. He relies on a network of professionals and experts to thoroughly investigate the trucking accident and the full extent of your injuries or wrongful death claim. At our firm, you never pay a fee unless we win a recovery for your case.

A Lawyer Who Investigates the Facts of Your Case and All Sources of Compensation

In many tractor-trailer accidents, the truck driver is not the only party who may be liable. There may be the dockworkers responsible for loading the truck improperly, or liability on the part of an independent maintenance contractor who failed to service the truck properly. There may even be truck equipment manufacturers that supplied faulty tires, brake pads or other vital equipment necessary for the safe operation of these massive vehicles.

Trucking accident injury and wrongful death claims often take several years to settle, as the trucking companies and other liable parties put up continuous legal roadblocks to force you to settle early. When you retain our services, you will have a highly trained and experienced attorney at your side, fighting back to make sure you get the full and fair compensation you are entitled to.

Through the entire duration of your truck accident claim, we will keep you fully informed about how different legal strategies will affect your case and how your decisions will affect your settlement. We have found that promoting open and continuous communication creates a mutually beneficial relationship.
