Collisions involving an 18-wheeler devastate drivers and passengers alike.
The typical passenger vehicle simply cannot withstand the size and weight of a semi-truck. Victims can expect years of doctor’s bills, medical expenses and lost wages. Permanent disability is common.
Some even lose their lives.
However, while the victims recuperate in the hospital the trucking company and their insurance providers will notify their legal teams. Those lawyers will do everything to protect their company’s bottom line as cheaply as possible.
That’s why it’s important to hire the right 18 wheeler accident lawyer.
A good personal injury lawyer can help you fight the trucking and insurance companies and get the compensation you deserve.

Commercial trucks like 18 wheelers can be extremely dangerous. When an 18-wheeler hits a passenger vehicle, motorcycle, or pedestrian, the chances of serious injury and fatality are extremely high. In 2006, in the state of Texas alone there were almost 7,000 truck accidents that resulted in injuries. There were almost 500 fatal crashes.
Each year, there are more than 400,000 accidents involving large trucks like commercial box trucks, tractor-trailer combinations, and 18-wheelers. 18-wheeler accidents account for as many as 5% of all accident-related injuries.
Commercial vehicle accidents account for 14% of accident-related deaths.
