When a truck collides with a much smaller vehicle, the consequences can be lethal. Each year, thousands of Americans lose their lives in automobile accidents involving trucks and commercial vehicles.
Some truckers are exhausted from driving too many hours. Others cause accidents by driving while distracted, speeding or cutting off other motorists. These forms of negligence cost innocent people their lives. Injury victims can bring a lawsuit when truck driver negligence has occurred. Your choice of lawyer is important if you are considering litigation.
