Were You Injured Because of a Distracted Truck Driver?
Although talking on a cellphone and/or texting while driving isn't yet illegal in all states, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has strict regulations governing distractions in the cabs of commercial vehicles. Cellphones, CB radios and other distractions that take the truck driver's mind off the road are strictly illegal.
If you were involved in a truck accident caused by a distracted truck driver, you are entitled to seek significant compensation for:
- Medical bills and treatment
- Lost earnings, time off work
- Pain and suffering
At Humphrey, Farrington & McClain, you will never be pushed into accepting a settlement offer that does not fully compensate you for your injuries. We work for you, not the truck company or its insurer. Our 25 years of experience have taught us that injuries are often more sustaining and permanent than the victim initially thought. That's why truck accident cases in particular can take years to settle or come to trial. We need to know that you have attained your maximum level of recovery before we can determine the full extent of your damages.
We Will Not Be Out-Resourced
Covering the cost of investigating and preparing a major truck accident case involving cellphone use or other distractions requires significant professional and financial resources by the law firm.
Too many firms say they handle truck accident and motor vehicle cases, only to back down after a couple of months when their financial resources run out. Our trial attorneys have the resources to keep fighting until you receive the full and fair settlement or jury verdict you deserve. We have obtained more than $1 billion on behalf of our clients since 1984.
We have experience in all types of injury and wrongful death claims resulting from truck driver negligence, including:
- Distracted driving, cellphone use and texting
- Truck driver DUI accidents, drug and alcohol use behind the wheel
- Falling asleep at the wheel, truck driver fatigue, lack of rest, sleep apnea
- Speeding, reckless driving, illegal lane changes
- All other violations of FMCSA regulations
Our attorneys handle distracted driving truck accident cases in all states, including Illinois, California, Texas and Florida. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means that our initial consultations are free and we shoulder the cost of litigation until our clients receive compensation.
