Injured By A Large Truck? Call The Layton Truck Accident Lawyers
Big rigs, 18 wheelers, semis or tractor trailers – whatever you call them, they are enormous and they are everywhere. Large trucks account for 23,000 accidents each year according to the National Traffic Safety Board (NTSB), and when they do get in accident, they can be lethal. NTSB also reports that 80 percent of large truck accidents result in death. A car is simply no match in a collision with a big truck that can legally weigh up to 80,000 pounds.
