Truck accidents can be devastating for those they injure. Because of the significant size disparity between large trucks and passenger vehicles they share the roadways with, truck accident victims can suffer serious injuries that are disfiguring or disabling and may even result in death. Given the serious nature of truck accidents, it is important for truck accident victims to know that their legal rights are protected.
