A Large Truck Accident occurs daily all over the country, even in Lee County, Alabama or the surrounding Auburn/Opelika area. There are currently in excess of 2 million tractor trailers traveling the roads of the United States. Nearly 40,000 people die in traffic accidents this year with about 10 % of those being involved in a large truck accident. It’s a fact that large trucks are difficult to control and stop due to their design and the amount of weight that they are carrying.
They also have large blind spots and make wide turns which increases their potential for accidents. Combine that with drivers that have often times been on the road for too many hours, you have a recipe for disaster. Your legal rights need to be protected when you have experience an accident with a large truck.
