DuPage County trucking accident lawyer, truck safety violations, Illinois truck accident, truck accident prevention, truck crashWhen you are on a major highway like I-290 or I-88, it can be an anxiety-inducing experience to drive around and between numerous semi-trucks while worrying about truck accidents.

According to a recent study conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, if more 18-wheelers were equipped with safety technology, we could prevent more than 60,000 crashes annually.

DuPage County car accident lawyer, distracted driving, cell phone use, car accident, car accident claimsDrivers in DuPage County and throughout Illinois are banned from using handheld electronic communication devices on the road (625 ILCS 5/12-610.2).
