There is an extremely high possibility of severe injuries and fatalities in an accident between an 80,000-pound commercial truck and a passenger vehicle. Although truck drivers are specially trained to operate these vehicles and are responsible for conducting themselves in a safe and conscientious manner, some drivers still choose to prioritize profits over following the rules. The unfortunate results are preventable accidents that harm innocent people.
When accidents happen, victims have the right to be fully compensated for any losses they suffer as a result.
