Because trucks are so much bigger and heavier than cars, accidents involving these large commercial carriers are more likely to cause debilitating injuries and death to motorists. Benjamin M.

Though no amount of money can erase the heartache resulting from your injuries, he will advocate for your right to receive just compensation from the parties responsible. He employs assertive strategies to obtain damages for past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress and pain and suffering. If you have endured the devastating loss of a family member in a trucking accident, Mr. Sgro can file a wrongful death suit on your behalf.

Persistent Illinois attorney goes after negligent truck drivers and companies

Truck accidents are tragic events that might well be avoided if truckers and the companies that employ them followed the federal regulations designed to improve truck safety. Benjamin M. Sgro can help you pursue justice and compensation when you’re injured in an accident with a tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler or other large truck caused by:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Aggressive driving behavior
  • Unsafe driving conditions, such as snow, ice, rain or fog
  • Unlicensed or untrained drivers
  • Truck rollovers or jackknifes
  • Oversized trucks
  • Overloaded trucks
  • Tire blowouts
  • Brake failure
  • Poor truck maintenance
  • Mechanical defects

Benjamin M. Sgro represents individuals injured in all types of commercial vehicle accidents. He employs diligent negotiation techniques and tenacious courtroom strategies to pursue the best possible outcome.

Proactive representative works hard to build strong cases

Trucking companies quickly descend upon the scene of an accident to collect valuable evidence and figure out how to reduce their responsibility. When officials clear the debris, vital evidence disappears, and so may your opportunity to receive the full amount of compensation you deserve. Benjamin M. Sgro immediately jumps into action to protect your interests. During his aggressive investigation, he tries to preserve crucial evidence, take witness statements and photograph the scene to record skid marks and vehicle positioning. He understands the anguish that follows a catastrophic trucking accident, and refuses to allow a negligent company to take advantage of the surrounding chaos to mitigate its liability.

When preparing for negotiations or trial, he consults qualified experts who understand the extraordinary impact of trucking accidents. In court, these professionals — such as trauma doctors, chiropractors, accident reconstruction analysts, and mechanics — can offer compelling testimony about your accident and resulting injuries.

No matter what kind of injury you’ve suffered, Benjamin M. Sgro stands strong in the face of tough opposition, using all available means to present a strong case on your behalf.
