Truck accidents are one of the most serious types of motor vehicle accidents a person can be involved in. The extreme difference in size between large commercial trucks and other vehicles on the roads makes them a significant safety hazard, potentially placing the lives of all other drivers on the road in danger. For this reason, truck drivers and trucking companies must exercise the strictest caution and control in the operation of these vehicles. Unfortunately, not all drivers take these serious responsibilities into account when on the road.
The consequences resulting from truck accidents can range from broken bones to head and spine injuries to, in the worst of cases, death. The Law Office of Scott R. Barney, believes that no one should have to face these consequences on their own, especially when the truck accident is caused by the other party involved. Hiring the right Virginia Beach truck accidents lawyer can be the best decision you make. Don’t talk to the insurance companies BEFORE talking to a lawyer.
