Truck Accidents

Trucking is a fact of life on our streets and highways. Surrounded by the D.C. Beltway, I-95, I-495 and other major roadways, our law office in Laurel, Maryland, are not far from the scene of many car and truck accidents. Big rig 18-wheelers are the equivalent of warehouses on wheels. A passenger car is no match for a semi tractor-trailer, and for this reason, crashes involving cars and trucks nearly always result in serious to catastrophic injury or death for the passengers and drivers of the automobiles. In contrast, a truck driver may not be injured at all. Rollover accidents on freeway entrance and exit ramps sometimes result in injury to truck drivers.

Whether you were injured while driving or riding in a car, or were injured as a truck driver, you should have your case evaluated by a knowledgeable and aggressive attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you have a lawyer on your case, the more likely it is that the investigation will be fruitful and the truth will come about as to why the accident happened.

Was the truck driver fatigued or under the influence of drugs or alcohol? Was it a speeding truck? Was there a defective mirror or did brakes fail? Was traffic congestion so heavy that the cars and trucks were tailgating, leaving little room for error and leading to a rear-end accident?
