DuPage County Truck Driver DUI Accident Attorneys

Illinois Lawyers for Victims of Accidents Caused by Drunk Truck Driver

According to the Centers for Disease Control, accidents involving drunk drivers are responsible for roughly one-third of all traffic-related deaths in the U.S. When the accident involves a large commercial truck, the risk of fatalities is even higher. When it comes to driving while drunk or on drugs, truck drivers are held to a higher standard than other motorists. They are responsible for safely operating large rigs, and for this reason, they are required to take extra precautions to ensure they are not impaired on the road. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck driver DUI accident, it is important to speak with an experienced truck accidents attorney so you fully understand your rights.

For over 35 years, Mevorah Law Offices LLC has provided skilled representation for victims of DUI trucking accidents in the Chicago area and throughout Illinois. Our attorneys have extensive experience dealing with the complexities of truck accident cases and going up against well-funded adversaries such as the large trucking companies. We put our experience to work to secure just compensation for our clients and to hold the responsible parties fully accountable.

We have been recognized by our peers not only for our experience and skill, but also for our unwavering commitment to protecting the interests of our clients. In addition, all our personal injury cases are handled on a contingency basis, so you never pay upfront attorney fees to receive the experienced representation you deserve.

We offer free consultations, extended evening and weekend hours, five locations to serve you, and regular updates on the progress of your case.

Truck Driver DUI Liability in Illinois

If a commercial driver is operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .04 or higher, he or she is driving drunk. In addition, semi-truck drivers are prohibited from consuming alcohol and certain types of medication within four hours of operating their vehicle. If a truck driver is driving while drunk or on drugs and causes an accident, there could be multiple parties responsible.

In addition to the driver, the trucking company may be held liable if the driver is an employee. Even if the driver is self-employed and works for the company as an independent contractor, the company may still be held liable in certain circumstances. Under the Illinois Liquor Control Act (also known as the dram shop law), establishments that serve alcohol to the driver can also be held liable if it can be proven that the alcohol served contributed significantly to his or her intoxication.

Trucking accidents caused by driving while drunk or on drugs are senseless and preventable. At Mevorah Law Offices LLC, we work hard to hold those responsible for such accidents fully accountable, so they do not continue this reckless behavior. We are also aggressive advocates for our clients, working tirelessly to obtain full compensation for the physical, financial and emotional toll the accident takes on you and your family.
