Truck accidents often end in devastating injuries that can cause long-term disabilities. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, speeding causes 26 percent of truck wrecks, but these crashes can result from distracted driving, inclement weather and a range of other factors. If you were injured in a collision with a semi-truck, then you should immediately contact an injury lawyer with experience in prosecuting trucking accidents.
Even the safest motorists practicing defensive driving cannot control the actions of other drivers. All too often, commercial truckers drive more hours than allowed by law, or they load their trailers to weights above the maximum capacity. In these circumstances, accident victims may be able to file a lawsuit for medical bills, lost wages and other damages.
