Chicago Trucking Accident Attorneys

Often, trucking accidents are the result of truck drivers trying to adhere to company expectations. Many truckers find themselves racing against the clock to deliver within a short amount of time. This can lead to fatigued drivers or speeding. Many times, these companies can be held legally responsible for accidents caused by these drivers.

If you've been involved in a trucking accident, here's what you need to know. https://www.cooneyconway.com/trucking-accidents

Semi-trucks are an integral part of the economy—but at a cost to the public in some ways. With so many traveling main roads and highways for deliveries, they tend to take up a lot of real estate on the roadways.

Several years ago, our partners established the Cooney & Conway Chair in Advocacy to support the scholarship and teaching of legal advocacy at Loyola's School of Law. The designation of the Judge-in-Residence was created under that Chair and it is currently held by a man who's making waves and we're proud to have in the position!

This past August, in Jamison v. McClendon, an opinion cited by courts, law professors, and popular news outlets, Loyola's Cooney & Conway Judge-in-Residence Judge Reeves recounted our nation’s racial history and the development of qualified immunity
jurisprudence:

"Under that law, the officer who transformed a short traffic stop into an almost two-hour, life-altering ordeal is entitled to qualified immunity. But let us not be fooled by legal jargon. Immunity is not exoneration. And the harm in this case to one man sheds light on the harm done to the nation by this manufactured doctrine."
