We are tractor trailer accident lawyers of the Commonwealth Law Group, and we have the experience to help you.
Consider this fact: One-in-nine traffic fatalities involve a large truck, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Given the size and weight of trucks and tractor trailers, even a minor impact can be devastating, causing injuries to the neck, back, spine and even death.
Truck accidents really can be devastating to a victim and their family. Trucks are large and due to how they are built and their low center of gravity, the impact from a tractor trailer can be catastrophic. The results of a truck accident can lead to back, spinal cord, brain injury, and even wrongful death. You or your loved one may be entitled to collect damages. Some of the situations our tractor trailer accident lawyers encounter:
Truck Rollovers – Due to the weight distribution of trucks and SUV’s, we are seeing an increasing amount of truck rollovers. When a vehicle of that size makes a fast or sudden turn, the chances for a truck rollover increase. Unfortunately, this also results in large accidents that usually impact more than just the driver.
Delivery Trucks and Large 18 wheelers – We see these trucks on the road all of the time. They are delivering goods to your local stores and are normally on a route with cargo that requires them to carry a lot of items. Most of the accidents that occur aren’t really anyone’s fault, but things like fatigue, over-sized loads, and non compliant maintenance can be a factor in an accident. The tractor trailer accident lawyers at Commonwealth Law Group in Richmond Virginia have the experience to help.
