Truck accidents pose a constant danger on Maryland's roads

Recently a deadly truck crash occurred on Interstate 81 outside Hagerstown, Maryland, when a tractor-trailer crossed the median into the northbound lanes. Design Transport, an out-of-state company, operated the truck that collided head on with the vehicle of a Maryland resident. The driver of the vehicle struck by the tractor-trailer was fatally injured. Currently the crash is under investigation.

Tractor-trailer accidents differ from the typical vehicle accidents that many of us are familiar. Most people do not operate such a large vehicle and are unfamiliar with the real danger they pose. Given the size of most trucks, combined with the size and weight of their cargo, truck accidents can often have severe and even deadly outcomes. The cars that most of us operate are built to safety standards that protect us from the unforeseen. However, when it comes to an accident involving a large truck and a car, those standards are often not enough to protect us. Many times these trucks are simply too large and powerful to prevent serious damage or injury.

Like other accidents, truck accidents are frequently avoidable. Both truck drivers and others who share the road with them can many times avoid accidents by simply following safe driving practices. Nevertheless, people are killed or injured in truck accidents all too frequently.

If you have been injured in an accident involving a truck, or if you have lost a loved one in an accident, you can consider contacting an experienced attorney who is familiar with the particulars of car and tractor-trailer accidents. Working with an experienced attorney can help you protect your rights and work toward compensation that you may deserve.
