Truck Accident

Truck accidents involving tractor-trailers, semi-trucks or 18-wheelers can occur due to any number of reasons including speeding, tire blowouts, driver fatigue or inattention, poor road conditions, mechanical failure, or other causes. Because of the size and weight of large trucks, when they collide with other vehicles, they often cause catastrophic injuries.

In addition to physical injuries such as broken bones, spinal cord damage, and traumatic brain injuries, victims must also cope with lingering psychological trauma that can put a strain on their relationships with family, friends and co-workers.
