Truck Accidents

It can be intimidating for automobile passengers to share the road with 18-wheelers and other large trucks. These vehicles have tremendous momentum due to their mass. Because of this, being involved in a wreck with a large truck is likely to have devastating consequences for drivers of smaller vehicles. What’s more, truck drivers frequently neglect needed vehicle maintenance and forgo sleep and food for themselves in order to deliver freight on time, while the trucking companies that employ them often look the other way when it comes to such practices because it is good for their profit margins.

Unfortunately, this routine of sacrificing safety for expediency can extract terrible costs from other drivers and gravely injure and or even kill them if a wreck takes place. If you or a member of your family has been involved in an injurious collision with a large truck, we urge you to contact an experienced truck accident attorney as soon as possible. An aggressive Alabama truck accident lawyer can assist you in pursuing civil litigation against a careless or reckless truck driver with the goal of obtaining the maximum possible compensation allowable under Alabama state law for you and your family.
