Assisting Trucking Accident Victims Recover Their Losses
When a truck collides with a smaller vehicle such as a car, the passengers in that other vehicle most likely will suffer the most. The reason for this is simple: commercial trucks and 18-wheelers are much bigger and heavier. Because of this, truck accidents often result in fatal and catastrophic injuries. And often it is the negligence of truck drivers and truck companies that is the cause of the crash.
