Experience With Car Accidents On Chicagoland Freeways And Tollways

High speeds, rush hour, truck traffic and bad drivers create the conditions for serious auto accidents on metro highways. Such crashes can be complex, and commonly cause severe injuries. You need an attorney who is accustomed to big cases and experienced with the unique legal aspects of highway accidents.

Accident On The Interstate?

Personal injury trial lawyer Mark Maritote has obtained many noteworthy verdicts and settlements over the years. This includes recoveries for traffic accidents on the interstates and toll roads of the Schaumburg/Hoffman Estates corridor and surrounding areas: namely I-90 (Jane Addams Memorial Tollway), I-290, I-294, I-94, I-190 and I-335.

Expressway accidents require a swift and thorough investigation. We sometimes hire accident reconstructionists to aid in establishing the cause of the crash and the liable parties. Common factors include:

  • Rear-end collisions in stop-and-go traffic
  • Cars sideswiped or forced off the road by trucks
  • Speeding, tailgating and unsafe lane changes
  • Aggressive driving and road rage
  • Fatigued drivers, such as drowsy truckers
  • Distracted drivers
  • Road construction detours

Freeway accidents commonly involve multiple vehicles, further complicating the legal aspects.
