Have You Been Seriously Injured In a Trucking Accident?

Car accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, and in fact, all types of vehicle-related accidents are capable of causing catastrophic injuries or death. The main difference between a trucking accident and any other type of accident is that statistics have shown that accidents involving large trucks are more likely to be fatal. This is due to the fact that large trucks have a much higher center of gravity and they are regularly transporting heavy loads. Add that to the speed and momentum generated by a truck, and it is clearly a very difficult force to counteract.

Trucking accidents commonly occur when a driver pushes to meet an unattainable deadline, is tired due to lack of proper breaks and sleep, or other driver distractions. In many cases, trucking accidents tend to be catastrophic, especially when they involve both a truck and a smaller vehicle. If you have been involved in a trucking accident you need an attorney who will work aggressively to determine all parties liable for the accident.
