Many detrimental and life altering injuries are the result of truck accidents. When a passenger vehicle collides with a large commercial truck, the injuries are often catastrophic. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2010, nearly 4,000 people were killed and 80,000 people were injured in accidents involving large trucks. This is a ten percent (10%) increase in fatalities from 2009. If you or a loved one is facing injuries following a serious truck accident, my firm can help. At the Law Offices of Robert H. Humphrey, I have the experience and skill to help you seek the compensation that you rightfully deserve.
There are many different types of truck accidents. One common type of accident is a truck versus car collision. When these occur, the size and weight of an 18-wheeler is no match for the small and even medium sized passenger vehicle. Other truck collisions occur with other trucks and these can also cause serious harm to all vehicles involved. Another common type of truck accident is an accident caused by improperly securing goods. The goods come loose and fall off trucks onto the roadways.
