Most drivers expect that others around them on the road are driving carefully to avoid accidents. Unfortunately, this is not always true.
If you were injured in a car accident, hiring legal representation should be the first step you take after receiving medical care. The firm you choose can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case, should you decide to file a personal injury claim against the negligent party who caused your accident.

Trucking accidents are one of the most damaging types of motor vehicle accidents due to the size and weight of commercial trucks. Negligent truck drivers who don’t follow their regulations and laws of the road can cause preventable accidents which lead to severe injuries. Regulations have been put in place for commercial trucking companies and drivers to try to make the roads safer for other drivers. This includes how many hours they can drive, how much rest they must get, and how cargo should be loaded. However, many trucking companies push their employees to meet deadlines or get to their destinations faster, causing them to break the law and drive recklessly.
