Millions Recovered for Truck Accident Victims in Central Illinois …

Victims who can walk away from a semi wreck or commercial tractor-trailer accident with anything less than a catastrophic injury are few and far between. Most are not that fortunate. If you and your family have been affected by one of these horrible tragedies — prompt investigation and accident reconstruction can be critical to your chances of obtaining compensation.

Contact our attorneys in Peoria, Illinois. They'll work to protect your interests so that you can focus on your family and recovery.

At Nicoara & Steagall, we represent people throughout Central Illinois whose lives and families have been shattered as the result of a truck accident. With decades of state and federal litigation experience involving truck accidents and numerous six- and seven-figure recoveries obtained — our lawyers have what it takes to help you recover and rebuild your life as well.

Common Truck Accident Causes Include:

  • Reckless driving, excessive speed
  • Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Drowsy/overtired drivers
  • Brake failure
  • Negligent maintenance of the vehicle
  • Improperly loaded or secured cargo

We know how and why truck accidents happen. We know what evidence to look for and where to look for it. We have a comprehensive knowledge of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (the 49 CFR Series) that govern the interstate trucking industry.

Insurance companies know these things, too. They also know that our firm is not afraid to take them to trial and that we will be well prepared to win if things come to that. This tends to make them more reasonable and willing to come to the table with a fair settlement offer instead of bully tactics. Many cases can be resolved quickly this way, allowing clients to get the help they need sooner rather than later.
