You cannot predict the injuries that you will suffer from as a result of a collision. Unfortunately, we see tens of thousands of people in our state suffer from traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and severely broken bones following auto accidents each year. When semi-trucks are involved in accidents, the chances of suffering severe and life-threatening injuries are dramatically increased. These vehicles are much larger than others sharing the road, which means they are far more destructive toward other vehicles in crashes.

In many instances, these crashes are caused by drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions while behind the wheel. We see countless truck accidents take place due to drivers who are drowsy, impaired, or distracted while operating their vehicles.
