There are more than 12 million commercial trucks on America’s roads. Most drivers will share the highway with trucks on a daily basis. Truck accidents are often more serious than accidents that involve other types of vehicles. Truck crashes are more likely to result in severe injuries or fatalities, often to the occupants of other vehicles. Trucks are large and carry heavy loads, making them difficult to maneuver and stop. If you were hurt in a truck accident you may want to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon after the crash as possible.
