Accidents with large commercial trucks are among the most devastating types of motor vehicle accidents. Because trucks are so much larger and heavier than passenger cars, they can literally crush the smaller vehicles, causing deaths and catastrophic injuries to people inside. When the crash was caused by bad decisions from the truck driver, trucking company or both, victims can and should hold them responsible for their injuries and their costs. An experienced trucking accident lawyer can help you secure compensation for your injuries and losses and protect your rights against insurance companies.
