Everyone avoids trucks on roads and highways. People instinctively avoid being behind trucks and avoid driving next to trucks. This is at least partially because of the sheer size of trucks. We live in the year 2010, but our society still relies upon trucks to transport goods. Unfortunately, truck accidents are far more likely to lead to catastrophic injury and even wrongful death because of their weight, size, and lack of maneuverability.
The trucking industry is the leading transporter of goods, well above train. However, trucks are also statistically the most dangerous vehicles on the road.
When truck accidents occur, it is very likely that a representative from the trucking company will be sent to the location of the accident. It is absolutely essential that people involved in truck accidents retain an truck accident attorney to fight for their rights.
