Commercial trucks play a vitally important role in the national economy. While they are necessary to move goods and supplies, they can pose an extreme hazard to other motorists and pedestrians on the roadway.
Why? Because large commercial trucks can easily exceed 30,000 pounds. When traveling at a high rate of speed, the force created upon impact with a large commercial truck can be devastating – even deadly. The injuries are often catastrophic, causing lifelong physical and mental issues and severe financial difficulties.
According to federal data, more than 4,100 people were killed in commercial truck accidents in 2018 alone. More than two-thirds of these victims were drivers or passengers of other cars on the roadway.
If a commercial truck driver has injured you, or harmed someone you love, then it’s imperative that you contact an experienced attorney immediately who will help protect your, or your loved ones, legal rights.
Commercial trucking accidents are often more complex to litigate than typical auto accidents. This is because multiple parties may be involved in leasing, owning or maintaining the commercial truck(s) in question. The truck driver, the trucking company, the companies that handle the truck’s loading and maintenance, or even truck’s manufacturer, may all have some liability for the accident. Because of this, it’s essential to work with an experienced attorney, as early as possible, who specializes in commercial truck litigation.
