18-wheeler truck accidents

Are you aware that an 18-wheeler truck weighs about 80,000 pounds compared to a passenger vehicle that weighs about 5,000 pounds? Are you also aware that one in every eight to ten traffic-related deaths involves the largest vehicle on the road - the 18-wheeler truck?

According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, approximately 500,000 trucking accidents happen every year in the United States. When these accidents occur, about 5,000 people die and more than 100,000 are seriously injured.

Since serious injuries require expensive treatments, these accidents can have long-term, disastrous effects on an emotional, physical and financial level.

If you or a loved one has been severely injured in an 18-wheeler trucking accident, or if a loved one has died in such an accident, contact a San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who has been successful in trucking accidents to determine whether you have a legal claim and are entitled to a settlement.
