Trucking Accidents Cause Serious Injuries
Because of their immense momentum, trucks can be immensely dangerous when they are mishandled. According to truckaccidents.org, the situation is largely preventable:
Nearly 90 percent of commercial truck accidents are caused or worsened by some sort of human error—either on behalf of a truck driver, other drivers, other vehicle passengers, cyclists or pedestrians
When truck drivers are inattentive or otherwise negligent, it is important that the trucking companies are held accountable. All too many are working on tight deadlines and put revenues before safety. While nothing can undo the damages of these serious accidents, the civil justice system can provide victims with compensation and accountability.
