Truck Accident Injury Lawyers
A typical, fully-loaded commercial truck can weigh 40 tons or more, while the average passenger automobile weighs around 3,000 pounds. Thus, an accident involving a truck, such as an 18-wheeler or other large freight carrier, can have catastrophic consequences. In fact, it is estimated that 5,000 people die annually in the U.S. due to accidents involving commercial trucks.
Our truck accident injury attorneys are experienced with these types of cases and can assist you in getting the help you need.
