Fighting for Victims of Negligent Truck Drivers
Truck accidents tend to involve enormous forces and considerable damage, which is why so many accidents arise from negligent behavior each year. In fact, a fully-loaded tractor-trailer can weigh up to 80,000 pounds - the same as an unloaded passenger train car.
Although a number of truck accidents occur on roadways because of driver negligence, it is almost as likely that poor design and maintenance can lead to issues such as unsecured loads, malfunctioning brakes, and tire blowouts. No matter what the cause, the result is typically the same: major injuries that will mean years of treatment, exorbitant expense, and lost income.
