In the Right Places at the Right Times: 24-Hour Emergency Response

In the trucking and transportation industry, there are no “normal business hours,” and when it comes to investigating incidents and defending claims against the transportation industry, our goal is to have your business covered. That’s why we’ve established an Emergency Response Team.

The minutes and hours after a crash matter, and our clients know we’ll be there with them during those critical moments. When an accident occurs, a member of our Emergency Response Team responds immediately to preserve physical evidence and witness information, as well as to investigate the cause of the accident. An experienced transportation attorney comes to the accident scene, bringing with him or her the right investigators and accident reconstructionists. (These experts are crucial in conducting a complete investigation and in assisting us in making important determinations on downloading and interpreting event data recordings and other electronically stored information.)

With five offices located throughout the State of Illinois, an office in Missouri, and another in Indiana, we are uniquely situated near some of the most highly traveled roads in the country. When an accident occurs in Illinois, Missouri, or Indiana, our attorneys provide the necessary investigative support and ensure you receive advice from lawyers familiar with the practices, attorneys, and courts.
