Tractor Trailer Accidents

Tractor trailers and other large commercial vehicles pose a heightened danger to drivers of automobiles, motorcycle riders, and pedestrians. Tractor trailers and commercial vehicles are oversized, heavy, and difficult to maneuver. Because of these traits, commercial vehicles and their drivers are subjected to special maintenance and safety regulations. These regulations are often times overlooked or blatantly disregarded causing catastrophic injuries.
Accident involving tractor trailers and other large commercial vehicles often cause serious injuries even in minor accidents. Injuries can range from a simple sore neck to broken bones, traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s), amputation, paralyzation, and wrongful death.
Victims of accidents involving tractor trailers and other commercial vehicles sometimes face a daunting, painful, and extended physical recovery process. The journey to recovery can take weeks, months, or even years. Often times the recovery process includes physical therapy, multiple surgeries, missed work, and serious depression.
