Accidents involving passenger vehicles can result in serious injuries, but when an average-sized automobile collides with a commercial truck, the consequences are often devastating. In fact, 98% of the individuals killed in such collisions are in the passenger vehicle. And, to make matters worse, many trucking companies do very little to train or monitor their drivers to avoid such accidents. Some even encourage their operators to exceed the speed limit or drive when tired, by offering financial incentives by the mile or the load. No matter how safe a vehicle you select or how responsibly you operate it on the highway, you are at risk from the actions of others. It is during these times that you need a commercial vehicle accident attorney on your side.
Victims of truck accidents may face life-threatening health problems, require costly medical treatment, and need time away from work to heal. An experienced trucking and commercial vehicle attorney may be able to help these people file a compelling lawsuit against the negligent party that caused their truck accident in order to get financial compensation for these damages.
The attorneys at Lopez McHugh have an understanding of the complex regulations governing trucking safety, and the experience of handling multimillion-dollar cases. As always, our goal is to encourage safer operations and improved standards, making the roads less dangerous for trucks and passenger vehicles alike.
