Overview - Trucking Accident

Trucking accidents involving large commercial vehicles - semi-trucks, 18-wheelers, and other heavy freight carriers, often result in significantly more severe consequences than typical motor vehicle accidents. The significant size and weight of these trucks can cause devastating injuries, extensive property damage, and, tragically, fatalities. Given the complexity of laws regulating commercial trucking and the various factors that can contribute to these accidents—such as driver fatigue, improper loading, mechanical failures, and challenging road conditions—navigating the aftermath of a trucking accident can be particularly challenging for victims.
