Full-Service Representation For Truck Accident Victims
Truck driving is an inherently dangerous profession. Commercial truck drivers must be highly trained and are strictly regulated by company, state and federal laws. When negligent truck drivers take to the highways of Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland, innocent lives are unnecessarily put at risk. Thousands of these accidents are fatal, many to the drivers themselves. In 2009 in the United States, there were 10,287 light truck accident deaths, and light truck occupant injuries totaled 759,000.

Sometimes a victim’s only recourse is to file a lawsuit to seek compensation for his or her injuries. If you or someone you know has been injured in a truck accident or tractor-trailer accident or due to truck driver negligence, it is important to fully explore your legal options.

Injuries suffered in a truck accident include brain injury, whiplash, back and neck injuries and even amputations.
