Truck Driving Accidents
Truck drivers in their big rigs have a responsibility to drive safely. They require greater distance between vehicles to stop. Drivers must get adequate rest before heading across the state or country to deliver their goods. They also have to ensure that their truck is appropriately maintained. The fact is, truck accidents often occur because truck drivers or their companies are negligent in any number of ways. If they’ve cut corners and not performed adequate safety checks or measures or if the driver has failed to follow the rules of the road, you may be eligible for compensation if you’ve been injured in a truck crash.
Truck accidents can lead to serious injuries and even wrongful death. John Andreopoulos has represented clients who have suffered injuries like:
