Highly-Skilled Truck Accident Attorney in Rockford

Have You Been Injured In A Truck Accident?​​

Commercial trucks play an essential role in bolstering our economy, serving as the backbone for transporting goods across the country. Yet, their significant weight and size mean they have the potential to cause substantial damage in the event of an accident.

If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident involving a tractor trailer, it’s crucial to understand your rights. Our dedicated truck accident lawyers in Rockford are here to help.


Shelter From Insurance Companies

Haggling with the various insurance companies involved in large truck accident cases can be confusing. Furthermore, they may strive to minimize their payouts. Fortunately, we understand what it takes to negotiate a fair settlement for our clients.

You deserve to be compensated for your physical and emotional pain and suffering, in addition to your medical bills and related financial losses. Our Rockford truck accident attorneys fight for the maximum compensation you are entitled to.


Peace of Mind

Your well-being is our top priority. We take on the complexities of your case, allowing you to focus on what truly matters – your health and recovery. Rest assured, we are here to handle the legalities while you concentrate on getting back to full strength.

What Should I Do If I've Been Injured In A Truck Accident?

Immediately dial 911 and see medical assistance. Even if you do not experience any pain, it is crucial to consult a physician as soon as possible following your accident. Due to the elevated adrenaline levels caused by the stressful incident, it may take some time for the pain to manifest fully.

First, Seek Treatment

It is important to have any type of pain evaluated by a healthcare provider. Failure to seek prompt medical treatment for an injury could potentially affect your ability to pursue full compensation for the expenses related to your injury.

Double Check the Police Report

Police always create reports for major accidents. Insurance companies use these reports as their main source for disputing your claim. Therefore, it’s vital to make sure the report is accurate. As time passes, details will be more difficult to recall.

Be Wary of Making Statements

It’s likely that an insurance adjuster representing the other driver will contact you following the accident. It's crucial not to apologize, admit fault, say you are not hurt, accept money, or give a recorded or written statement.

Avoid Social Media

Even admitting to being in an accident or saying you're okay on social media can harm your legal case. It's also crucial to avoid commenting on news articles about your accident. Anything you post online can be used against you.

Get Your Vehicle Appraised

If your vehicle hasn't been declared a total loss, it's recommended to have it inspected by a mechanic, even if it looks fine. Hidden frame damage could greatly affect your car's value and safety. Identifying the damage early allows you to include it in your claim.

Call a Rockford Truck Accident Lawyer

If you're not at fault for an accident, contact a trusted personal injury lawyer who can help you seek the rightful compensation you deserve. Keep in mind, in Illinois, you may be eligible for damages as long as you're less than 50% at fault.

Client Testimonials

I have known Mr. Brynteson for many years. I first met him in a social setting at a men's prayer group, then later had the privilege to use him professionally on several occasions. Mr. Brynteson has set up two non-profit corporations that I am a part of in record time. His competence, speed of action and knowledge in the area was astounding! I believe that Mr. Brynteson has the integrity that he would not take on any case in which he feels he could not do an exceptional job for his client. I certainly could recommend this gentlemen and am privileged to publicly give him a 5 star rating.

— Dr. Jacob Caraotta

When I finally called Mark Brynteson after being mired in a nasty situation for several months, Mark immediately took charge and directed every reponse on my part. He explained the problems clearly from a legal standpoint and also provided options when they were available. One day when I was quite sick and flat on my back, Mark called to follow up on a problem. When he finished, he said, "Today I'm not on the clock". Under the circumstances, that consideration was highly appreciated.

— Len Salvig

We have found Mark Brynteson to give both informed and researched advice. After using several different lawyers, we now go directly to Mark for our legal issues. Having had such a good experience I would highly recommend his services. We will continue to rely on Mark for all of our future legal needs.
