Drivers' Health and Truck Accidents
Drivers' Health, Truck Accidents and Your Rights to Compensation
Skilled Truck Accident Investigation Techniques to Ensure Your Rights Are Protected
Health issues are never easy for the person who suffers from them. When those same health issues lead to the injury of others because the illness led to a truck accident, that person and/or that person's employer should be held accountable for the negligent and careless operation of what can be a very dangerous machine — a semi truck or 18-wheeler vehicle.
At The Jasmer Law Firm, we have been on the leading edge of Illinois litigation involving truck drivers' health and truck accidents since firm lawyer David S. Jasmer entered the practice of personal injury law in 1996. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a truck accident, we can investigate your case to determine whether the accident occurred because of:
- Diabetes or borderline diabetes, glucose levels and resulting dizziness and lightheadedness
- Issues relating to medication
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Driver fatigue
- Age-related factors
- Any other medical issue leading to a truck accident
Our diligent work and skilled techniques have led to numerous successes in litigating truck accidents. In a recent case, we proved that driver fatigue was a contributing factor in a truck accident and settled the case for $20 million.
When Drivers' Health Is in Question, Experts Can Make the Difference
The locating and use of competent and relevant witnesses can be the key to success in truck accident cases involving questions about drivers' health. We use expert witnesses to ensure each case is fully prepared. In a recent case, we worked with one of the world's foremost experts in sleep deprivation to obtain an eight-figure award.
Federal regulations require truck operators to screen drivers and monitor their health, and for drivers to drive only when they are capable of doing so safely. If you have questions regarding a truck accident and truck driver's health, contact our firm for a no-charge consultation.
At The Jasmer Law Firm, we offer free initial consultations, are available for evening and weekend appointments and can come to your hospital or home if needed. We handle all cases on a contingency fee basis and are conveniently located in downtown Chicago across from City Hall and the Daley Center Courthouse. We don't collect attorney fees unless we obtain monetary compensation for you. To contact attorney David Jasmer, call 312-386-7011 or 866-920-6021.
