Truck Insurance

Trucks have to be insured just as passenger cars do, as per state and federal laws.  When they are uninsured and found to be driving there are serious consequences.  However, uninsured drivers are not the only problem you can face when confronted with a trucking accident.  Insurance companies are notoriously difficult to deal with.  With an experienced attorney on your side, you can rest assured that you have a strong voice against the insurance companies.   Click here for more on trucking insurance.

Under-Ride Accidents

Some of the most gruesome trucking accidents are underride accidents.  An underride accident occurs when a small car is following too close behind an 18 wheeler.  If the 18 wheeler has to suddenly slam on its brakes, the car can slide beneath the truck, ripping the entire top portion of the car off.  These accidents most commonly result in fatalities.  Despite guardrails installed on many trucks, these accidents continue to be happen.  Click here for  more on trucking under-ride accidents.
