Our attorneys have the experience to help prove that such a driver and his company acted negligent under Illinois law by proving that the negligent driver breached his duty to you and that the breach of that legal duty caused all of your injuries. In proving the legal duty the at-fault driver owed you, your experienced trucking accident attorney will look to the Illinois Motor Vehicle Code. This Code defines certain road standards that all drivers must comply with. In addition to the Illinois Motor Vehicle Code, your trial court will look to what reasonable people in the local Chicago community would have done under similar circumstances.

Truck drivers and employees of trucking companies have the legal duty to abide by Illinois state laws and regulations on traffic safety. Usually, failure to do this will constitute a breach of their legal duty and your experienced attorney at the Law Offices of Attorney Dan Newlin will use this to satisfy the second element in proving that the truck driver was negligent. There are many examples of the way drivers will breach their legal duty. For instance: the failure of a truck driver to stop his truck at a stop sign, speeding in a construction zone, driving the semi-truck too fast for the particular road conditions and driving continuously for more hours than legally allowed. Finally, Illinois law requires that the Plaintiff establish that it was the Defendant truck driver’s breach of duty, and not some other factor, which caused all of the Plaintiff’s severe injuries. Many times the fact that a particular accident caused a particular set of injuries is clear, however the Defendant will contest this element of proof at trial, especially when the victim had a pre-existing condition or injury which she asserts was aggravated by the accident.
