The supersized problem of distracted truckers

You may never forget the day your life changed forever. On the other hand, you may mercifully have no memory of the tractor-trailer accident that caused you catastrophic injuries and perhaps claimed the life of a loved one. While that loss may have been precious to you, your loved one was among approximately 5,000 others who died in accidents with big rigs in a single year.

Despite your efforts, you could still be a truck accident victim

Like many Illinois residents, you may have a substantial fear of traveling the roadways alongside semi-trucks. These larger vehicles could do considerable damage to your vehicle or to you in the event that an accident takes place. Because of these potential outcomes, increased apprehension around semi-trucks often affects numerous travelers.

Should you seek damages for emotional duress after an accident?

If you were hurt in a serious car accident, not only are you dealing with the physical implications of what happened to you, you could also find yourself dealing with severe emotional trauma as well. A harrowing accident can be devastating. It can leave you with damages and scars that you may not be able to see but which are just as real as any physical injury you may have.
