Accidents involving tractor trailers or other large trucks can be complicated and confusing. Negligence laws vary state by state. That’s why you need experienced accident lawyers to protect your rights.
Know your rights in a truck accident
» You may have a case even if you were partly responsible.
» You may be entitled to additional compensation because truck accidents sometimes involve parties other than the driver, such as: insurance companies, employers, vehicle manufacturers, government departments, trucking companies and contractors.
Truck accidents: You’re not alone
Nearly three times as many people die in truck accidents than in airplane, boating and train accidents combined. These fatalities are unfortunately on the rise.
Some commercial truck drivers aren’t trained properly, or their companies pressure them to drive at unsafe speeds or spend too many hours on the road. The results: overtired drivers and an increased chance of accidents.
In an accident, injuries may also occur from the truck’s cargo, which could contain hazardous or flammable materials such as gasoline or industrial waste. A personal injury lawyer can help you navigate the complicated area of truck accident law.
