Commercial truck accidents are often much more tragic than conventional accidents; fully-loaded commercial trucks weigh up to twenty-five times as much as a typical car. Truck accidents – especially on highways, at high speeds – are often fatal, and survivors frequently sustain catastrophic and disabling injuries. If you or someone you love has been injured in an accident with a large commercial truck, help is here. Speak at once with an experienced personal injury attorney about your legal rights and options, including a possible personal injury lawsuit.
Truck Accidents Statistics and Causes
