Truck Accident Lawyers in Marion
Helping Southern Illinois Obtain Fair Compensation for their Injuries
When there is an accident involving a commercial truck, insurance companies sometimes offer victims a small settlement right away to avoid having to pay any further damages. Once a check is accepted, nothing more can be done about that accident. Those who have been involved in a truck accident in Marion should immediately seek professional legal counsel. The team at Howerton, Dorris, Stone & Lambert has provided trusted legal counsel for nearly a century, and understands how to fight against insurance companies to obtain fair compensation.
Questions about Commercial Collisions
A commercial vehicle is any automobile or truck insured for the purposes of a business. This means that even if a small business van collides with someone, a commercial insurance plan will be responsible to handle the costs of damages. By law, these drivers are required to report the accident within 10 days. Our firm has the experience and insights to know where to look for information about an accident. Illinois’ comparative fault rules specify that drivers will receive damages according to the percent they were responsible. This means an insurance company can get out of their liability by making a case against you.

An experienced legal team like the one at Howerton, Dorris, Stone & Lambert can help clients understand the strengths and weaknesses of their cases.
