Reliable Representation after Serious Accidents
Highway accidents involving semi-trucks and tractor-trailers often involve serious, disabling injuries – they may even be fatal. The trucking industry is heavily regulated at the state and national levels, but truckers routinely violate these regulations in an effort to save time, conserve resources, and meet delivery deadlines.
If a trucker violating any traffic laws or industry regulations causes an accident, he or the trucking company may be liable for damages and injuries.
