Experienced Lawyers Specializing in Truck Accidents
U.S. Department of Transportation statistics show that an average of nine people per day are killed and nearly 202 people are injured by semi-trucks. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a large truck is one that weighs more than ten-thousand pounds. An 18-wheeler can weigh more than eighty-thousand pounds. Often times, these huge commercial trucks can weigh up to forty times as much as a car.
Injuries and property damage sustained in truck accidents are typically more severe than other vehicle accidents due to the enormous size of semi-trucks and the high speed at which they typically travel. If you have been hurt in a truck accident, you deserve to be compensated for the high cost of your medical treatment, current and future lost income, and pain and suffering.
