It’s as obvious as it is tragic – when a large commercial truck hits a passenger vehicle, the occupants of the car are more likely to suffer. In fact, 98 percent of the individuals killed in such collisions are in the smaller vehicle.
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. And, to make matters worse, many trucking companies do very little to train or monitor their drivers. Some even encourage their operators to exceed the speed limit or drive when tired, by offering financial incentives by the mile or the load.
The Edwards Law Firm has an expert 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.
