Drug Use / Alchohol Use
Intoxicated driving is an ongoing problem on our roads, and unfortunately this problem also extends to professional truck drivers, and the sheer size and force of their vehicles means that their negligence poses even greater risks of serious injury and death if an accident occurs. If you or a loved one has been in an accident involving a large truck, we at Agruss Law Firm are here for you every step of the way to ensure that your rights are protected and you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses, and this includes working with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure a favorable settlement.
Driving under the influence is taken very seriously in Illinois and throughout the U.S., and yet some commercial truck drivers who have committed one or more of these offenses still find legal “loopholes” to continue in the profession. Trucking companies must be stricter when it comes to screening and evaluating employees, especially those who may be at risk of driving while intoxicated. Currently, intoxication accounts for nearly 10% of all truck accidents resulting from the truck driver’s negligence: nearly 5% for intoxication by banned/controlled substances, and 4% for driving with a BAC above the legal 0.08% limit.
While commercial truck drivers are responsible for operating their trucks in a safe and responsible manner at all times, trucking companies are also responsible, in a sense, for preventive measures to help ensure that their truck drivers are not only sober, but well-rested and prepared for their long shifts. Because some truck drivers involved in accidents are able to obtain probation or work-suspension while avoiding criminal charges, many accident-victims and their families will seek financial restitution to hold the driver accountable for the negligence and also receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. That’s where we come in: we will determine which parties areDrug liable for the accident and your injuries, be it the driver, trucking company, truck manufacturer, or a combination of these, and you won’t owe us a dime unless your case is won.
