Protecting Your Rights After A Truck Accident
State and federal law provides many guidelines for the safe transport of goods on our roads. Unfortunately, many semi-truck drivers ignore these rules or work to get around them. In some cases, ignoring the rules governing the trucking industry leads to serious accidents that may leave victims facing catastrophic injuries or families mourning a loved one.
In cases in which the truck driver could have taken steps to avoid the accident or failed to abide by trucking regulations, victims have the right to seek compensation for their losses, including medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
