Semi-trucks, tractor-trailers, and other commercial trucks can cause catastrophic injuries when they’re involved in auto accidents. Semi-trucks are huge vehicles, especially compared to your modern passenger cars which are lighter and more compact than ever. Semi-truck drivers are on the road for hours at a time. Commercial trucks tend to have poor visibility, and because of their size, take a long time to slow down and stop. Now, add these vehicles to the already congested and dangerous roads and highways in the Washington D.C. metro area, and you have a recipe for disaster.
The tragic result of tractor-trailer truck crashes and semi-truck accidents are too often devastating injuries and even death for the drivers and passengers involved, while the at fault truckers often walk away unharmed. And even though commercial vehicles and large trucks involved in interstate commerce are highly regulated by federal and state governments, semi-truck crashes remain all too common in D.C., Maryland, and Virginia.
The most important thing you can do to avoid being a truck accident victim is to always be alert and practice defensive driving at all times. But even if you do everything right, you can’t stop the truck driver’s negligence. If you’ve been in a semi truck accident, you need a good truck accident lawyer. And you need one right away. The right tractor-trailer accident lawyer will know what to do in the hours and days immediately after an accident to preserve your rights and ensure that you get fair compensation for your injuries.
