Truck, 18-wheeler and other commercial vehicle crashes can cause serious injuries for those involved. When a fast-moving semi truck or other large commercial vehicle comes into contact with a smaller car, bicycle or pedestrian, the results are often catastrophic, if not fatal.
The insurance coverage issues that often arise following an accident with a commercial truck make it important to retain an experienced law firm to represent you in these matters.
