There is a new website and resource for victims of large truck accidents in Chicago. Chicago Truck Injury Lawyers have created an informational site to address not only legal issues with trucking accidents but to also inform the citizens of the Chicago area of safety concerns regarding commercial trucks. The website (Link Removed), has useful information for anyone who has been involved in a commercial truck accident or just wants to avoid having one in the first place.
Attorney Jonathan Rosenfeld believes commercial trucks accidents can be deadly to anyone on the road. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 86% of fatalities attributed to large truck accidents in 2010 were to passengers of other vehicles and pedestrians. The large size and weight makes these vehicles hard to control, stop and maneuver. Of all trucking accidents that were tracked in a five-year study, 49% of them had fatalities.
