Call A Leading Millcreek Truck Accident Lawyer
Large trucks are the kings of the road. If you’ve driven down the Interstate recently, you know this is true. Trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds fully, and they can be intimidating to say the least — especially if you’re driving an ordinary passenger vehicle.
Large trucks take to the highways in the millions each year, and they are responsible for a staggering number of fatal accidents. In fact, the National Traffic Safety Board (NTSB) reports that 25,000 annual accident scenes in the United States involve trucks. And a very high percentage of accidents involving trucks result in fatalities. A typical automobile weighs an average of 4,500 pounds and doesn’t stand much of a chance in a collision with a truck.

Facts About Truck Accidents
Truck accidents typically occur because of driver error, equipment, or unsafe operation. Examples include:
* Drivers who break regulations of allowable hours behind the wheel
* Equipment that isn’t working properly
* Loads that aren’t tied down properly
* Excessive speeds
When any of these occur, tragedy can strike. If you’ve been in a large truck accident, we can help. We will work hard to get you the settlement you deserve. Taking on the trucking company’s insurance underwriter yourself will only lead to frustration and little to nothing in reimbursement. Their entire goal is to pay you and your family just as little as possible.
