Serving Truck Accident Victims With Skill And Dedication
Trucking accidents quite frequently occur in highly populated areas and on busy roads and highways. Truck accidents are one of the most common causes of serious injuries. The main reason for this is that the size and weight of a truck colliding against any other type of vehicle are incredibly dangerous and can even be catastrophic.

Who Is Liable After A Truck Accident?
Oftentimes, the party held responsible after a trucking accident is the trucking company. There are a handful of reasons for this, but commonly trucking companies require their drivers to break rules for the purpose of saving time and money. This may include less frequent rest stops than legally required or other rules. There are times when the driver is held responsible if they were practicing negligence to rules and laws set for them. On occasion, the cargo loading company or truck manufacturer can be held responsible if the accident was truly because of a fault on their part.
