West Virginia Truck Accident Lawyers
Exposing the Dangers of Fatigued Drivers, Overloaded Trucks & More
Research shows that, on average, truck drivers travel many more miles than passenger vehicle drivers. Even though most of those miles are on interstates (which are usually the safest roads), large trucks still accounted for 1.7 crashes per million miles traveled in 2008. This number is higher than the 1.5 crashes per million for passenger vehicles and is proof that trucks can be a dangerous force on our highways. If you or someone you love has been injured in a truck accident, now is the time to hire a professional West Virginia truck accident attorney.
