A Truck Accident Attorney Who Can Help Get Compensation for Your Injuries
Serious truck accident injuries happen in the blink of an eye. In an instant, a tractor-trailer or another large truck can slam into another vehicle, changing the lives of the occupants of that car forever. The driver or passengers in the car might sustain serious head and neck injuries. Paralysis caused by serious truck accidents happen far more often than many people might realize. And worst of all, many families are forced to deal with fatal truck accidents due to the sheer size of such vehicles. In some cases, a fully-loaded tractor trailer can weigh more than 80,000 pounds. That's 20 times greater than the weight of an average car.
