Every year, commercial trucks carry billions of tons worth of cargo across the United States, playing an invaluable role in the American economy. However, because of their considerable size and force, these vehicles pose substantial safety concerns for those who must share the road with them. This is especially true when truck drivers, trucking companies, and truck manufacturers are not careful in performing their duties. In these cases, there may be an extremely high risk of a devastating, even catastrophic, accident occurring, causing innocent people traumatic injuries.
The costs of truck accidents for victims can be extensive, including medical bills, lost income, and other expenses that may later arise as a consequence. At The Thomas Law Firm, we understand how much of a burden this can place on a victim and their family; however, many people victimized by truck accidents and facing these difficult ramifications can often seek compensation and justice for their suffering through a truck accident lawsuit.
