Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
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 http://www.chicagotruckinjurylawyers.com, 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.
Although these statistics are staggering, there are precautions that can be taken to help prevent these accidents, both on the part of the truck drivers and the other motorists on the road. Chicago Truck Injury Lawyers hope that by creating an informational site that they can help prevent some of these accidents as well as represent victims of these accidents for their legal needs.
Some of the information that is included on the site includes:
- Safety tips for avoiding truck accidents
- Types of truck accident injuries (look here)
- Truck fatality statistics
- Different types of truck accidents (look here)
The new site will be a resource for victims of trucking accidents or their families, if the victim is deceased, to find out what options they have. Commercial vehicle accidents are much more complicated than passenger vehicle accidents and often involve several entities or companies that are associated with the truck involved. Victims need a resource they can turn to, that knows their rights and what steps they need to take to be compensated for their losses.
Chicago Truck Injury Lawyers have created a truly valuable resource for the residents of Chicago as well as other Illinois residents. They have committed themselves to providing new information to the public on the site and say it will be updated regularly with new advice, legal information and safety concerns.
