Competent Springfield, IL Attorneys Represent Workers in Commercial Vehicle Accidents

Navigating you through workers’ comp and third-party injury claims

For a commercial driver, traffic accidents represent the greatest risk for workplace injury. Vehicle collisions — even those at low speeds — can cause significant injuries that may leave you temporarily or permanently disabled and may even prevent you from earning an income in the future. At Boshardy Law Office, P.C., an accident attorney assists you with your workers’ compensation and personal injury claims. With more than 20 years of experience serving the needs of injured workers in Peoria, Springfield, and throughout Illinois, you can trust in our team.

Many different injuries may occur in a traffic accident

Injuries from traffic accidents may affect all parts of the body and may be serious enough to leave you permanently disabled and unable to return to work. Some of the most serious consequences of auto accidents include:

  • Brain injuries. Injuries to the spine and brain are the most common in traffic accidents. A traumatic brain injury, such as a concussion, may not be immediately apparent after an accident but can cause long-term brain damage.
  • Spinal cord injuries. Whiplash is the most common spinal cord injury that occurs in traffic accidents. The sudden whipping of the neck can damage the spinal cord or fracture vertebrae, leading to minor or major pain or even total paralysis.
  • Death. In the worst cases, vehicle accidents cause the death of a loved one. The damages to the head, neck, spine and body can kill the driver at the scene. If your loved one was killed in a vehicle accident related to work, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party.

A commercial vehicle accident attorney can help with your case

Semi-truck drivers are not the only commercial drivers — limo drivers, delivery van drivers, home health aides or any individuals required to drive as part of their work duties are also considered commercial motorists. A qualified attorney at Boshardy Law Office, P.C. fights diligently for you, seeking the compensation you need to focus on your physical recovery. These damages may cover lost wages, medical expenses, job retraining, and pain and suffering.
