Bad Truck Accidents

Any accident with an 80,000 pound, 75 foot truck is a bad truck accident. Because of the size and weight of the truck, there is tremendous potential for damage and injury. And in fact, the statistics show that while truck accidents make up 3% of all traffic accidents, they account for over 130,000 injuries and 5,000 fatalities each year. Bad truck accidents, then, happen every day, and it is up to the drivers to sort out the liability, and recover from the pain and suffering. That can be easier said than done, which is why it is so important to consult a truck accident lawyer to make sure your rights are protected in bad truck accidents. While the truck driver may not be injured at all or only in a minor way, a car driver usually suffers serious injuries or death. Be sure to help your truck accident lawyer obtain all the evidence you can so that you'll receive the compensation you should from your bad truck accident claim.
